So, the day is moving along normally, and my kids get home from school. My T1 owns up to the fact that he didn’t have a Dexcom working and forgot to bring his meter to school. What should he do; Call his dad who is 15 minutes away, use the one in the office for just this case, or decide to be a young Jedi Master?
Well, from my title you can tell which direction he went. While not what I or I am sure his doctors would recommend, he took control, gave himself 5 small doses of insulin when he felt high, treated two lows, dosed and ate lunch, and walked in the door at 4 pm with a bg of 89.
Not how the plan was drawn up, but his Jedi training pulled him through. Children…[palm smacks forehead]
