    You guys are all good to me. Thanks.

    Nathan's numbers have been a bit crazy today so I was thinking something is up. When I was snuggling him before bed he felt warm: He has a fever. So I guess I have a reason for the wacky number and ketones this morning.

    You better believe I'll be checking him tonight.

    Lynn,

    I know how you feel. My son's BG are so unstable overnight. I now automatically wake up every night around 3 & I am then compelled to check. This is one time I particularly love the sensor. I look at the sensor & if it is less than 100, greater than 140 or trending up or down, I will do a fingerstick . Also, the arrows let you know how fast it is moving. A 190 fingerstick with a sensor reading of 140/double up arrows tells me he needs a bigger correction than just a 140.

    Doesn't this disease jus tick you off. I think this is exactly the part that stinks the most. Things just aren't consistant from day to day. With my personality---this just drives me crazy. You made the best choice at the time. I hope you get some time to sleep this weekend. WE all understand.
