Everyone in our house has been passing around this yucky cough for the past week. Our daughter's with D turned into croup over the weekend. She ran high all day yesterday with ketones (0.3 to 1.7). Did a site change around supper last night. By 11 p.m. she was running a fever. By midnight, she had 1.7 ketones. Did correcting and basal rates of 110% through the night. All of the sudden, at 9:30 this morning, she was a 325 with 3.6 ketones!!! Panic was an understatement!! After two sleepless nights, I literally just kinda walked back and forth trying to get my head yanked together as to what I was going to do next! I called my husband and he just kept saying, "stop crying...stop crying". After a call to the nurse (I expected panic from them too, but she was very calm. By noon, she had had 13 pages!!), an injection, running a basal of 110%, another site change, and lots of water, she dropped to 118 and .5 ketones within a couple hours. Ever feel like diabetes is going to age you very quickly?!? The new slogan for mom's of diabetics..."Coffee and Clairol, that's what I need!" Hope all of your kiddles stay healthy this winter!
