3 days of post breakfast highs for Maddie equaled some basal increases a couple weeks ago. Luckily, I've been able to flip back to her "higher" basal pattern and everything works out lovely. It didnt used to be that way.
It used to be I'd have to change EVERYTHING. Dramatically. And I was afraid to do so, in fear of causing bad lows at school, even though it was obvious a "touch" of change wasnt gonna help much. I'd change this basal. That basal. 5am. Maybe 6am. This time. That time. Try this. Try that. It would take WEEKS to get things set right. It was horrible. Exhausting. The guilt of not figuring things out from one day to the next would eat me alive. Maddison's dark circles under her eyes would haunt me. Today, I'm thankful for flip flopping. Being able to flip flop already finely tuned basal patterns and have them be just right has saved my sanity lately.
Last week Maddison was high for 3 days. So, Flip, flop. MUCH better. 5 days of "perfection" followed. Two days of lows. FLIP, FLOP. Much better. We shall see what today holds. You just never know.
