For the past 2 weeks I've been unable to make any sense of Jaxson's numbers. There is no concise pattern and his blood sugar levels are all over the board. I just don't get it. D wreaks havoc on him emotionally. I hate seeing him in so much distress and discomfort.

Jax BS was 393 and he tested positive for ketones at 4 a.m. this morning. That's a first since his diagnosis. I called endo, gave him 2 units of Humolog, and checked him hourly till 7 a.m., by which time his BS was 106 and ketones were negative. I wanted to keep him home from school, but he insisted on going. I texted the school nurse and filled her in. 

Speaking of our school nurse (Melissa), she takes wonderful care of my son while he's at school and gives me great peace of mind. Besides Jaxson, there are 3 other elementary children with d at his school, one of which is Melissa's son.  Unfortunately for her, I am fortunate to have her looking after my boy... if that makes sense.

There's so much more I want to share today, but I really must get some practice transcriptions done.

D will not kick my ass today!


  1. That's right...BACK OFF D!! Sorry to hear that Jaxson's numbers have been crazy..and that he had ketones. But I'm really glad that things are looking better today.

    Sometimes D makes ME crazy...when I just can't figure out the pattern..or rather there is no pattern to Ally's numbers. Good Luck...Keep putting D in it's place!

  2. THATS RIGHT!! You tell D where to go!

    I hate it when I can't make sense of it.

  3. Sometimes, the only thing predictable about D is its unpredictability!

    You are so lucky to have a nurse, who's also a D mama!

  4. Oh, those freaking non-sensical stretches!!!! EEK!!!

    We have one starting over's like a storm that's looming.

    God help us all.

  5. as my lovely colleages said....boooo! I hate unpredicability of it all. Nice to meet you and glad to have found your blog!
