Hi. High. High, high, high. 12AM 196, correction. 2AM 294, correction. 4AM 189, mini-correction. 9AM 192, breakfast w/correction. 12PM 193…Change site, no need wait around this disastrous state any longer. Already wait too long! Seem so dramatic unwrap new ka-chunker, giant needle, every other day quite often enough see that needle thank you. Can’t be normal ka-chunk daily, use so many ka-chunkers. Archaeology museum of future very grateful Bigfoot family leave behind so many these lasting treasures.
Some smart person mention switch from Humalog —> Apidra for better pump experience. Fewer cloggy site. Really want try something new. Can’t be good so many 200+, 300+. Gag Bigfoot with spoon-feeling wait around while child’s insides get wrecked.
Not so accidentally Bigfoot let Bubs slurp from nighttime teacup, peppermint nettle tea. Nettle known lower blood sugar. March? April? when learn this, Bigfoot horrified gasp! I fed my baby dangerous herbs from those gamine hippies at the Pawtucket farmer’s market! Not recommended diabetic people b/c difficult control strength/efficacy. (Like Humalog?) But just tiny slurp. Think maybe can jump-start insulin for night. Now convinced all corrections plan kick in together 2AM + sip nettle tea = ?
A recent study in the February 2010 issue of “Human and Experimental Toxicology” found that nettle has antidiabetic activity and, when given together with insulin, it potentiates the effects of insulin, thus enhancing the body’s ability to lower glucose levels.
Also this weekend, Bubs visit West Bay Bubs. Fantastic time. While in WBB’s natural environment, notice three distinguishing traits Bubs/WBB: 1. WBB detest peanut butter (Bubs love); 2. WBB exclusive use belly for infusion site, never buns (Bubs inverse); 3. WBB’s parents totally awesome geniuses w/acts together. One is MD, other is diabetes science Ph.D., also design rock gym in garage and Wii studio w/ample cup holders, and he has even more Legos than ME. Basically, WBB has total package, diabetes- and regular kid-wise.
Dr. Mrs. WBB + Dr. Mr. WBB all manner sophisticated pump tricks: temp basal zero if low at night, check every 45 minutes for rise. If WBB eat pizza, double amount insulin pump recommend & extend dose with double wave. If WBB sit in car, make sure seat belt not touch infusion site/obstruct flow. If WBB on plane, stand up during bolus. Dr. Mrs. WBB + Bigfoot agree it seems impossible that dumb people can do this! How do dumb people do it? Giggling guiltily over Diet Cokes I know! I’m a knee-jerk liberal too! I feel terrible saying this! Once Bigfoot back out of WBB fabulous driveway, realize desperately need read Pumping Insulin book + absorb all lesson + then giggle Diet Coke w/ Dr. Mrs. WBB over how dumb people keep diabetic children alive. Not make it over to non-dumb side yet.
Not all boo-hoo so insecure. Was fun time. Only now read Pumping Insulin loom so large, feel just like traditional nightmare where must take final exam in class didn’t realize enrolled, show up/questions make no sense, just try fill in answers obvious bullshit.
