Last night for the first time in months, I was confident with Maddison's basal settings. No high to correct going to bed, no active insulin, no food digesting, not even a tad low....As a result, I was able to sleep straight from her midnight check until 630 this morning! I haven't slept that long of a stretch in many months! YAY! I actually felt refreshed this morning. Maddison stayed in range again all night, and today her numbers haven't hit over 150 thanks to a slight .05 increase at 6am that I've been debating over making. WHAT A RELIEF!
One solid nights sleep is a blessing for me. Even more important is the fact that Maddison is "stable" overnight and in range for optimal health and well being. Amazing how one night and a few good days with Diabetes can put your feel good feelings and optimism back on track. I take Maddison's high spells very personally and they really make me someone that I am not. It's sad, but true. I'm working on that. I know "high spells" shouldn't make me feel this way, and I'm not talking about the random highs. Its the weeks of "too high" that get me. I wish I could just make adjustments more quickly and see results, instead of having to try so many different things over so many days. Oh well....what matters is I think I have basal adjustments made just right for now! Hallelujah! I plan to sleep well tonight! (knock on wood!) :)
