DOC I have no words to express, my gratitude.
Crashing lows showing LOW double down, resulting in spiking up to the top of Dex's graph. We don't see these, J was not a happy camper. He actually told me "Down and Up feels awful mommy".
It was erratic, I looked over and over for a pattern, but there was none. I had just basal tested 2 days before, and things were GOOD. So, I trusted my inner Pancreas and didn't change a thing.
Instead I made Justice sit on the couch ALL DAY, and just watched his bgs. I pulled back on bolus for breakfast and he spiked to 190, which we haven't see in a long time, and then it took 2 hours to get him under 180. I knew that breakfast wasn't the culprit.
Then he ate lunch. I bolused as usual but he decided to jump around while I was in the bathroom, and hit 65. Still not bad.
Dinner went as scheduled, and was good! No lows!
I basically wanted to give his body a day to "recuperate" from whatever it was causing this see saw.
It worked! It wasn't a normal day for us, but it was waaaaaaaaay better! Lowest was 59, highest was 220.
I knew things were on the mend. I gave him a bedtime snack worried since we have had those 3am lows for 2 days. Sure enough he didn't need it. He hit 201. I corrected, and he came right down and stayed put.
I saw the Dex graph I was used to seeing. I actually slept last night. He slept. I woke up menstrual, but smiling! When he feels good, I feel great.
I learned from this nightmare that sometimes there really isn't a reason or "thing" you can change, to fix it. Sometimes D is just a biatch, who is trying to remind you shes a bad bitch (bad means like "the shit". )
Well I trusted in my basals, my ICs, in all the work I put into them, and didn't touch a thing.
And it worked.
So while D is a bad bitch, I am still the H.B.I.C in this house!!
(I would like to thank Mr. Strange again, without Dex I fear these last 3 days could have ended badly. He's one of my D angels)
