What do you think about this situation? UPDATE Update: DD had her 3 month appointment today so we asked about them. He told us that his pump was malfunctioning and they kept changing sites, but not correcting by syringe when they saw corrections weren't working, so he got super high, running ketones etc. He stayed in the hospital overnight and went home the next day, I'm guessing with a new pump. We got a nice lesson about what to do if/when we have ridiculously high numbers that we can't seem to fix via site change, insulin change etc We just had a crazy T1D time at Sam's, and not with our own child! We were sitting at a table and a woman and a boy came up to us. The woman told us that her son remembered Molly from diabetes camp last summer. Molly didn't remember him, because he was 2 years older and in another group, but he remembered her face. The kids start talking and comparing pumps and we start chatting with his mom and his dad, who had come over. About 10 minutes later he comes over and tells his mom he's doesn't feel good. She takes him to another table and they sit and she starts having him drink some soda they have, he felt low I guess. They didn't have their glucometer on them at that moment, it was in the car. He went downhill crazy fast. His mom starts panicking because he got super pale and basically catatonic. His eyes were open, but he wasn't really responding to anything. I gave her a couple of Quick Sticks, but before she could give them to him he started projectile vomiting. She is freaking out and said he needed glucagon but they didn't have one. We had ours in Molly's bag so we gave it to them and they gave the whole thing to him. Dad is finally back, because he had gone off in the store shopping. He tells my DH after giving him the glucagon that he had been running in the 500s for a few days and they were having trouble bringing him down. He'd been 520 in the car on the way to Sam's and they'd corrected him and given him insulin and fed him lunch. Right after the glucagon they ran out to the car to get the glucometer and checked him and he was 186. He's been vomiting on and off for about 10 minutes at this point. I don't really know much of what happened after that because I pulled DD away after he started throwing up because it was freaking her out. They called the doctor (our doctor too) who said he thought it might be a stomach bug and not D related, but to head to the ER anyway and he'd meet them there. I think they got him stabilized enough and my DH helped them load up their stuff and get on the way. I guess I'm just wondering what everybody else makes of it. I was thinking it doesn't sound like a stomach bug, it sounds like ketones to me, with the 520 BS and staying that high or near that high for a few days. Then he did comes down quite a bit really fast, 350 pts in like, 45 minutes...can that make you THAT sick, that fast? I've also been wondering if the glucagon was the right move or not. I'm not criticizing what they did, it was so overwhelming, just looking back in hindsight and wondering what was really going on and thinking through it, what we would do if it was our DD in that situation. We have no idea what came of it. They got our info from my DH while he was helping them load the car so they could tell our doctor and they wanted to replace our glucagon kit since they used it, but we didn't get their info.
