Unfort, Bigfoot two major errors, throw BG out whack. Feel confident if can avoid similar error, will begin excellent BG stretch. Right now.
Situation: last night dinner before middle school open house. Rushing little bit. Bigfoot bolus Bubs 65g CHO before eat. Bubs eat 50g CHO. Bigfoot say, “Let’s just remember to have an apple or a glass of milk or something before Dad and I leave for the open house.” Dream babysitter arrive. Start tell instructions for if shower/ready bed, OK watch Saturday Night Live (not correct name–it Weekend Update Thursday) 8PM. Tiny bit anxious because then remember Dream babysitter = page @ GOP convention Tampa, think maybe lamestream media political program offend conservative teen. Nervous laugh. Hustle out door, slip-sliding corduroy grasshopper shoes, dog quizzical glance, milk/apple long forgotten.
Result: Dream babysitter tidy medical record show 1 hour pp, low.
Bright side: Needed 15g CHO for pop up range. This show basal/I:C ratio on target.
Situation: breakfast before school. Pack lunchboxes because forgot last night, Bigfoot Spouse complain wake up Fleetwood Mac earworm, Bubs request warmed up chocolate Breakfast Essentials (not mention w. pride), BG 146, bolus 40g CHO, write all down on chart, also making tea, Jack/BSpouse playing assorted records for eradicate earworm, settle on Wilco, remember hipster album come w/ free iTunes download but never download, try remember iTunes password, then phone bling update offer iOS6, then Breakfast Essentials too hot, grab potholder, then trash truck arrive, emotionally disturbed dog total apeshit for truck. Approx 2 hours later, Bubs ready bicycle school, test BG for bike ride, 358. Say what? Change site. Last minute realize should check bolus history. History reveal no bolus since dinner.
Bright side: That mistake pretty wretched, but again error demonstrate pump settings correct. Daytime goal: 110. 358-110=248. ISF 80. Want BG go down 248 points. Pump recommend correction 3.15u. Also: 40g CHO @ 1:11 morning ratio = 3.65u. Very close.
Everything so neat and tidy, math make sense, Bigfoot eager ride wave long as possible, hope not more big, dumb mistake for few days.
