We Have Her Dialed In
We have our Emma back!!! No more highs and lows. She is safe now. Just to give you an idea of how her highs went and lows went prior to her last two doses of insulin:
Friday BS (blood sugar) 23.1 mmol/l
Saturday Morning BS 4.0
Saturday Afternoon BS 2.8 and 3.0 mmol/l
Saturday Evening BS 17.8 mmol/l
Monday Morning BS 5.1
Monday Evening 13.8
Tuesday and Wednesday morning we administered her first two doses of 2 units of NPH (long lasting insulin)and her results since then have been dialed right within her target range of 6 - 12 mmol/l/l starting with 5.5, 5.7, 11.5, 6.0, 7.1, 6.1.
It is a good thing that something has been consistent because it is really hard to keep our emotions from going all over the board.
Denise and myself have done the flip flop with how we have been doing since Friday. I have had a hard last couple of days. I think it is because i know we have got a control on her diabetes now and at first i wanted her to be safe so i didn't wander too far into my feelings and thoughts because I knew both Denise and Emma needed me at the first stages. We find it the hardest when we read of other peoples struggles and stories and how they cope. But you know...we now have our own stories and mechanism's on how we cope.
