Soon as think I’ve finally outgrown pimples! Zit. Soon as I made it through the winter without getting chunky! Irish soda bread season begin. Soon as notice He has ketones, but look at me handling it so calmly like a mother from a story. Freak out knot in stomach.
Remind self deep breath. Remind self pause, locate physical space feel anxiety. Picture glowing energy ball bathe anxiety loving light. Not work. This Bigfoot story. (All dates on meter wrong bc never bother fix after February 29.)
#1 Yesterday Evening Poop Cake
Super talented friend create birthday cake w. realistic dog poops decoration. Bubs have medium-small piece but maybe bad SWAG g CHO b.c. later BG mayhem. Also ate: chicken satay/no sauce & 1/4c pad thai.
#2 After cake
#4 Still high.
#5 All better.
#6 Mommy, can you make me a pancake? Did you test yet? I’m 348! 148? No, 348! 48? No, 348.
#7 Ketones: blood meter 0.7. That noteworthy but not very ketone. Pee strip proclaim: small.
#8 Correction with syringe. Pancake with insulin. Water. Last basketball game of season in 20 minutes.
#9 Higher. 397. You’re higher. I’m sorry! You don’t need to be sorry. I’m sorry. Do you feel like playing? Yeah, I feel fine! Okay, but all that insulin is probably about to start working so if you start to feel low, come right over to me even if you’re in the middle of a play. I feel fine! Are you sure you feel okay? Bye, Momma!
#10 After play one ten minute quarter, higher still: 446. You’re higher. I feel fine! Do you—I guess I could—can I check your (realize uncouth check bum site in crowded gymnasium)—I guess I’ll do another correction, but just be so so so so careful if you feel low please just stop playing. No, you know what, let’s go in the bathroom or out to the car and change your site. No, Momma, I’m fine. Please…I’m fine. Okay. Actually I feel kind of sick. Can you tell the coach I need to leave? I think I’m sick. I feel icky. I feel just like…ick.
#11 Tell coach. Walk out. Father who look just like Cam from Modern Family complete w. contrast shirt cuffs follow: you dropped something! It a dog poo bag. Dog poo bag…dog poo cake. Bigfoot say, “Oh, thanks! It’s a dog poo bag.” Cam II horrified. “It’s clean!” Why so much dog poo this story? Maybe a clue
#12 At home. Test ketones pee strip (bc. really just need to know if larger). Lovely peach melba shade of small-medium. Decide not change site, instead Dr. Bfoot prescribe play Minecraft one hour, post anxiety post, then test, then decide next thing.
#13 One Hour Later, i.e. Now
#14 Still want know w t f happen
