Pump Fail

420…well, that’s fun.  (initiate instant mommy failure feeling)

We started out okay.

6am 114   (whooo hoo!!)

9am 235 (normal post-breakfast spike we cannot manage to overcome)

11:30am 165  (ok, I’ll take it)

1:45pm 306   (WHAT??!!??)   correction bolus

3:45pm 233 (well, at least it’s coming down)  correction bolus + snack bolus,  painfully wait 23 minutes before eating snack

5:30pm 420 (panic…breathe…retest in hopes of sugary fingers)…374  (darn, fingers not too sugary)    correction bolus

6:30pm 364   (panic again….injection with syringe…..change pump set after kiddo confesses pump dropped and yanked cord TWICE today while at school)

Hate having to change the pump set when I just did it yesterday   (ARRGGHH!)  …. but thank the lucky stars for numbing cream.

Now we wait….(mentally accepting neurotic mommy tendency that will drive me to check BS every 2-3 hours overnight…YAWN…zzzzz)
