Presley had a fever all night of 103. this morning she had Moderate Ketons, so her dr wanted her to go to the hospital. She could hear the hesitation in my voice (just because i am scared, this is her first time being sick with diabetes) she told me that we could try to stay on it at home but that she had to have Motrin and Tylonal fluctuating to keep the fever down, to get her gatoraide and to have her drink some every few min. then to give her insulin ever 2 hr's about 1/2 a unit. Her BG is still on the high side, but her ketons say negative. I'm trying to keep her really hydrated, she's not interested in eating, she 1/4 of a sandwich and was done. But her spirits seem to be better. But i'm still nervous and am praying the Ketons dont come back. Her Dr has me calling her every so many hr's for updates. So I feel good that I have her Dr helping me. I hope i'm doing okay, and that i'm not making a mistake not taking her straight to the hospital. I feel better that her Ketons are gone. If her Ketons hadn't gone away the second time we checked them, I was going to take her in. Do you all think it's okay to try to take care of Ketons on your own. Or do you all normally go straight to the hospital?
