    Well, today I woke up not feeling well. I had a headache, and my stomach hurt kinda badly. My blood sugar was 207, so I decided to test for ketones, just to see if that was what was making me feel bad. Ketones were negative. Okay, that part was good...well, as the day progressed, I got worse, (sorry for the blunt grossness :eek: that will follow) and started puking my brains out. :( Ketones went up, as bg went down. A few hours after this all started, I was taken to the ER because of Large ketones and dehydration. Not fun at all. I got sick numerous times on my way there (the hospital my endo is out of is an hour away) and I just felt like garbage. I was there for 5-6 hours, had blood work done twice, two bags of fluid, and three bags of anti-nausea stuff. So they released me finally, after I was able to tolerate some regular ginger ale. I am happy to be out of there. They sent me home with a perscription for zofran (anti-nausea medicine) and told me to just keep testing bg and drinking regular fluids until I can handle food.

    Well, it's after 11pm here, and I'm totally beat, so I am off to bed...just wanted to share my day with you guys as I'm sure you understand how sucky diabetes+stomach virus is. :( I hope I'll be good now.

    That really stinks! Glad you are back home and hopefully (crosses fingers) starting to get better. I have been extremely blessed and have not had a true stomach bug/flu in years. Though I had a bad afternoon (up to 587) because at some point idk when, my tubing broke so I wasn't getting any insulin! And it didn't help that I was out of ketone strips so I had to run to walmart and actually buy them. I hope your meds help and d cooperates. Rest up and feel better ~Healthy wishes~

    Ugh I'm so sorry that happened Malyssa! :(. ((((hugs)))) I've had to use zofran a few times before, and it worked pretty good for me.

    Thanks, Rae. Sorry you had such a bad afternoon! I've never had my tubing totally break before...thats crazy! :eek: And no ketone strips!!!!!! What a day! I hope you came down and ketones were negative!

    Thanks, Emily. Yeah, it definately sucks. The last time this happened I was admitted over night, so I'm happy I got to come home this time. An IV and two other pokes for bloodwork was no fun, so I'm super happy I got to leave before they tried to get more!




    I'm feeling much better today. I haven't eaten anything yet, but I've been drinking regular soda and sucking on life savers. BG has been behaving well, with only a .90 basal running since yesterday. I will try and eat something a little later..I have to go to work tomorrow afternoon, so I want to be good to go by then. Thanks for the well wishes everyone! :cwds:
