This week Dream Babysitter ketones. Not able come for Bubs tennis lesson yesterday. Think will feel better in evening for Bigfoot/Bigfoot spouse attend après falafel 8:30 screening Moonrise Kingdom. No. Still sick. Think will sleep, feel better in morning, come for tennis lesson. No. Still ketones. In text, voice mail refer this process “battling ketones.” What? How? Think will rest for day, come in evening, Bigfoot/BSpouse try again falafel/Moonrise combo. No. Dr. Doughnut send Dream Babysitter to hospital.
Not admitted to hospital, only tests. What tests? Dream Babysitter so kind. So apologetic miss tennis lesson/babysitting. Bigfoot not care those things, only sad nice boy feel crappy. How Dream Babysitter feel these ketones floating in body hours, days. No idea. Barf? Headache? Shiver?
Dream Babysitter very desirable summer home house guest Maine, Aruba, also tennis teacher/babysitter. Also have girlfriend! No time for sick. This happen often? Hospital? Dream Babysitter afraid? Maybe hospital de rigueur for diabetic teen jock. Want ask million questions.
Meanwhile, Bigfoot relieved not required go out have fun/film/falafel. Leave for Maine in morning. Early. Alone but w Hope Davis narrated audiobook. Meet 1990′s Boston/France friend lunch. Diabetic! Since age 7. Not 100% sure but think this friend use 2 shots/day (NPH?), no bolus, no basal. Or NPH is basal. Mystery. No one know. Could be French thing. Impossible find information this drug.
When Bubs diagnosed, Boston/France friend say something like, “This reminds me to ask my endocrinologist about Lantus.” ??? This friend very chic. Very hip. International wine expert. At wedding, actress from well-known crime drama sing w/accordion to tune of Roxy Music “More than This,” customized lyrics re bride’s disappointing old boyfriends. Endo at Joslin. Not sort of person typically unable access medicine. Why so old school treatment? I guess I’ve just always had such good control, they never wanted to change my treatment plan. Something like that. ??? When we were working together, I gained a lot of weight because my insulin dose was too high and I had to eat all of the time to keep up with it.This for real? Tomorrow try not ask million prying question. Question #1: Maybe NPH work better for Bubs? Not many good #s lately.
After Maine, begin obsess FFL. Only one day btw. Maine/Orlando. Not much time for obsess. Hope find cheat sheet diabetes packing list by Monday. Ten kachunkers too many, too few five days? Maybe ten just right. One unopened vial Humalog, maybe two. Syringes. 50? Backup vial Lantus. Lantus pen. Two cases test strips (200). Maybe 100 enough.
