Ugh the frustration! All night my baby's blood sugar was high. It doesn't seem to want to come down!He woke up this morning with a belly ache so I checked his keytones and sure enough he has between a trace and small amount of keytones. I gave a correction dose of insulin and pushed him to drink water. His sugar came down a little bit but not below 250. Still has keytones. I am really hoping to avoid the ER today.
On days like today he gets stuck so much and I hate it! I hate sticking him at all, all though he is a trooper through it all. I don't think any mother out there enjoys poking their child with needles repeatedly, but it must be done.
I kept him home to monitor him and give him the care he needs. He isn't complaining though. I don't think he is the least bit upset about missing school today. It is only the first time this year, but sadly I know there will be more. If he had it his way he wouldn't go at all.
Thanks for reading!
