As you all know, he’s been having a rough patch lately. He has periorbital cellulitis and bacterial conjunctivitis in both eyes. He had 4 baby teeth extracted on Tuesday and i hoped we would see a marked improvement after that time. On Wed he started complaining again of his eyes being watery and his upper eye lids have started turning red on both eyes and he’s getting eye discharge. He was high all night and today also…(during the night between 170 and 280 most of the night and today he is riding between 160 - 180.).
So, i thought i would do a ketone check (even though his BGs weren’t above 300, we know that your BGs don’t have to be high necessarily to get ketones… They can be present during illness even with no fever or drastically high BGs)
Anyway, his Ketones were 1.1. I have him drinking plenty of water right now and will do another check in an hour or two. I guess we are lucky that these are the first ketones ever detected since his diagnosis (i do check periodically during illness or prolonged high bgs).
He has an opthimalogy appointment at 2PM.
He’s been such a trooper but i just wish i take all of this from him… His diabetes, his eye infections, the whole lot of it. Going on a month sick now. I am not tweaking any settings because he’s sick… I’m just hanging on to the bull right now.
Not pretty, but this is the bull we’re on right now:
He’s doing a sensor warmup atm which is the reason for the current disconnects.
