It's been a day...make that three!

Bean is sick.  She has a cold...the yucky stuffy nose, sore throat 'thing' that is going around her school.

We erred on the side of caution on Wednesday keeping her home; not wanting her to push it and get really sick.  Wednesday night she spiked to 475 (seriously!?!) and it took three corrections through out the evening and night to get her down to 166 at 4am.  Needless to say, not a great night of sleep for either one of us!!

Thursday she stayed home in the morning, with possible plans to send her after lunch...something about dying eggs that just couldn't be missed! ;)  Well, when she tested for lunch, she was at 53 (again...seriously!?!) and she seemed genuinely surprised by the number.  She has always been able to feel her lows and when I asked her how she was feeling, she said 'Fine. Not like I'm at 53!'  ???  So, since her lunch was already in front of her, I had her eat her applesauce first to get her BG up.  We tested again 14 minutes later and she was at 46 (SERIOUSLY!?!).  She's never not come up from a low so I was a bit concerned to say the least.  Break out the Juicy Juice!  Test again in five minutes this time and she was at 70...thank God!  Three more minutes and she was at 155 (Ubergeek had been called at this point and he wanted another number.)  So, no going to school in the afternoon just in case her BG's continued being stupid!

And now it's Friday....and she's home again.  This time it was her choice and I wasn't going to fight it.  She's still quite stuffy and her throat was really bothering her when she woke up...well, barely opened her eyes to ask if she could stay home.  She had another low this morning just before 9 (53..what is it with that number, seriously!?!).  She had gone back to sleep after I checked her at 7:15 (after she asked to stay home) and she was at 226.  I did give her a little correction (not the full suggested amount) because she tends to start climbing if she waits to have breakfast.  Didn't mess around this time...went straight for the Juicy Juice!  Up she went, just like usual, to a nice 126 in 17 minutes.

Oh, and did I mention that she had a pod alarm Tuesday at school then Wednesday at home and Thursday at home?  And did I mention that Bean and Bug aren't the best at 'playing nicely' for long periods of time so it's been fun filled days of sibling bliss?  And did I mention that Ubergeek is helping with a project at Bean's school (super awesome, but still) so he's not only been at work all day, but has gone straight to school and has had to be there until after 11 Wednesday and Thursday nights and will be there again tonight.  UGH!!

I did get  a nice reprieve Thursday since Bug was already scheduled to be with Grandpa and he was kind enough to keep her even though I was just going to be home with sick Bean.  I was able to take a morning nap and get an uninterrupted shower.  That was a huge help!

But, we are stuck in crazyville again today and I'm just about ready to sign the citizenship papers!!

I'm hoping I don't get hit with the cold at all, or at least until after Sunday, because I'm singing for all four Easter services!  Kinda hard to do with a stuffy nose and sore throat!!!

Time for some hot tea and rest on the couch for me....Bug's down for her nap and Bean is enjoying "Megamind" on demand for the millionth time.  :)


  1. Aw, hope she's feeling better soon. Elise also has a stuffy nose and a low-grade fever. Her BG was steady in the upper 100s all day and no ketones. Not sure what the deal is, but I hope it goes away for both of them soon!

  2. I hope she is feeling better and that you have not gotten it!!! I hate it when the family gets sick...I get cabin fever after a few days.

  3. Poor little Bean! And, poor Mommy; As I know the strees of haviong a little one who is sick, couple that with diabetes, and you have one frazzled house.

    Hope the sun comes out and shines brightly on you all today!!!

  4. I hate the way illness can wreak havoc with numbers. Hope she feels better soon and no one else gets sick. Happy Easter!

  5. I hope things have settled and you were able to enjoy the weekend together.

    Illness and D is a huge mystery. And it's never fun :(
