6 Days

And so, it never fails. The highs are back. I knew we wouldnt stay on an "easy" streak much longer. In 6 days Maddison has her Endo appointment. What nice timing the highs always have. But...I TRICKED Diabetes THIS time! Last week Maddison had her yearly labs drawn which will include her A1c. So HA! HA Diabetes! I WILL see what Maddison's TRUE A1c is without this crazy streak of new highs invading the result! Next week I will be excited to see how the finger poke A1c varies from the lab draw. 250's to 380's the week before an A1c is SURE to throw Maddie's result off. (not that the result actually matters right?) Hear my evil laugh...WE tricked you this time Diabetes!!! HA! We are a week ahead of your evil ways!

Three new sites in 2 days. Maddie is still high. At 3am she woke up pukey, with ketones moderate to high. Sugars near 400. She had gone to bed at 160. I thought maybe her extra long bath threw off her basals, or ruined the new site. She did have ICE CREAM after dinner. But ketones? Who knows. Needless to say, we were late to school this morning while we waited for the ketones to be flushed with a nice big breakfast bolus and plenty of water. 215 before breakfast....378 after. UGH. Here we go. Here comes morning basal change craziness. 6 days until the ENDO visit....but guess what Diabetes!!?? Im a week ahead of you! (Evil laugh)

I hate the pre-endo havoc that diabetes is insistant on creating. It never fails that right before endo our numbers SUCK. I am left there saying, "really MD...things have been relatively good"...LOL.

Love to you!

I was curious as to what you meant.Do you do two kinds of lab work for Maddison's A1c or am I just reading it wrong? Because I have to admit A1c time is not Miranda's favorite time although she bravely gets it done usually with a decent reward afterwards.
Hope you conquer this weird streak..
