Dark purple

Maddison's numbers have been horrible. 7 day meter average is 220...the highest ever. I'm frustrated, confused....disgusted with this disease. Nothing is making any sense. Maddison woke up this morning around 4am when I treated an 80 blood sugar with some juice as she slept. Then she couldnt fall back to sleep. Her tummy hurt. After an hour of tossing and turning, Maddison was a nice 118, and then she slept until noon. Blood sugar = 338....DARK PURPLE on the ketone strips.

I've never seen urine ketones so high. Maddison complained of feeling "weak" and she's obviously pale. My poor baby! I didn't see any air bubbles, but thats my guess since I've had to prime many out in days past. Damn Diabetes.

Maddison's been having alot of stomach pain over the past two weeks, is that because she's been running high, or is that the cause of the highs? Right now she's informing me she feels "pukey" and has a stabbing pain in her stomach, which goes around to her back. YIKES. Ketones are now small.....damn this disease. I dont know what to think.

Major suckage! Being sick is no fun for either of you. I hope she feels better very soon.

Sorry to hear she's not feeling well. I think Elise may be coming down with something too.

I hate this disease too.
