Maddison is still high. You know...the illness highs. The ones that come down only for a moment, then spike up again even though you have done EVERYTHING to keep them away. Those highs. Those highs suck the most. You really feel like that one in range number is progress.....then BOOM. All highs again. Im feeling a bit bitter towards Diabetes today. My poor Maddie is exhausted.
Twenty minutes after school started today Maddison went in to see the Nurse for "feeling more tired than ever in life." She said she couldnt stay awake.
BS= 226. The Nurse sent Maddie back to class. 30 minutes later, Maddison came back for a headache. Tylenol. BS= 248. More complaining of being "more tired than ever in life." So, the Nurse emailed me at work. Did I mention I LOVE our school Nurse?
I told the Nurse that Maddison ran in the 300-400's all weekend. She sympathized, then asked if I wanted to come pick Maddison up. (She stayed home from school yesterday) Of course I WANTED to pick Maddison up from school.....but can you really bring your D kid home just because blood sugars are kicking their asses on top of a little cold? Of course not. And thats why Im bitter. Being sick is bad enough. Being sick with high blood sugars too? Its just not even fair. The double whammy. Damn you Diabetes.
