"My endo basically lets me do all my own care and decisions. She asks me all the time why I need her. My reply is to write scripts and order labs. She just laughs and agrees with me and then tells me she wishes all her patients were like me."

Monday I am supposed to starting working at a nursing home full time.

Whitney is up to 8.6 now, but she has been throwing up, I mean projectile vomiting so I called her doctor and got her in there today. She has to go for an ultrasound tomorrow to rule out pyloric stenosis.

If she has this, she will have to have surgery. Whitney could also just simply having the flu, but the doctor wants to make sure she doesn't have pyloric stenosis since she is a preemie as this is more common in… Continue

I am so sick of well meaning people who think they know about diabetes because they have a friend with it and think they have the right to lecture me when I state I have a low blood sugar or tell me I am eating to many carbs or eating to many calories. Right now I am breast feeding and it is taking a toll on my blood sugars. I am not taking any bolus insulin before meals and I have reduced my basal insulin by 50% and I am still having lows several hours after eating meals even with a lot of… Continue

back in MO

Whitney got out of the NICU on Wed and Wed afternoon she saw Dr. A to make sure she was safe to travel so off we went Wed evening to head to MO. We got home on Thurs. evening. I do have to say I LOVE what breast feeding is doing to my blood sugars. I am just sticking with my basal amounts of insulin, no boluses at meal times and my blood sugar is between 80-100 and I am eating carbs and still not going to high. They told me I needed to be on a 2600 calorie diet right now. I can see why after… Continue

Whitney is doing wonderful

Posted on March 7, 2009 at 8:45pm 6 Comments

Whitney is doing amazing. She started out on 5 ccs of formula yesterday and she is up to 20 ccs today and she isn't throwing any up. To be off the iv fluids and to be released she has to take 25 ccs and she will be up to that tomorrow. She is also maintaining her own body temperature so she might be out of the covered isolet tomorrow and into a crib, again a step closer to release.
