I had a great day. Of course I ate way to much. I had to take so much extra insulin to counteract my highs that I had to change my pod before the 72 hours were up. How did you all do?
First year on the Omnipod but not much new. Went to bed at 54, ate a 30 carb snack, went to bed and woke up at 354. Go figure, oh wait sometimes you just can't.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and ate well. You need to enjoy life sometimes and not worry about the BG. (IMHO)
I ate home made Lasagna, bread, salad, and then home made apple pie and chocolate ice cream. lol Of course I thought I took enough insulin but ended up at 415 bg so I inched my way down with corrections and marched in place for 1/2 hour. By bedtime I was down to 120 so all's well that ends well and I ENJOYED EVERY BITE. :-)
God Bless and have a very Happy New Year!!!
We did pretty great! My son is 5, and on Christmas Eve, we go to my Dad's house all day. He ate cookies, cake, candy, grapes, cheetos, honey ham, and so much more. We checked him throughout the day, and gave insulin blouses for food all day. When we put him to bed at 8pm he was 100!
Then Christmas morning, we started all over again. Breakfast and presents at our house, Lunch at my wife's parent's house. More snacking and junk food. Rounded it out with dinner at my mom's house. EATING all day! Went to bed at 8:30 Christmas Day, and he was 128!
Woo-Hoo! Hoppy Holidays Everyone!
During the holiday, my son had an overnight stay with his friend next door. This was the first overnight since his diagnosis last year.
They stayed up until 3am and he came back home at noon with a BG of 128. I tried to let him handle it but at 10:30am, I called my neighbor and had her look in on them. He usually will be really low by then but he had temped his basal and eaten some snacks before bed.
I'm so used to checking on him several times during the night, especially when he plays hockey, that I kept getting up anyway. He wants to go away to a Sports Medicine Camp at a college campus next year so I guess we have some planning and training to do before then. And, some sleeping pills for Mom!
