Talk about "jinxing" ones self. I cannot believe that on my last post i actually mentioned Emma's Diabetes as being a breeze. What an idiotic thing to do/say. We have not even gotten through one logbook yet and i go and tell it on the mountain that this shit is easy.
Through the beginning of her book i am seeing her morning numbers 4.8,5.4,5.6,4.0, 4.9 etc. You get the picture. But the last three pages of Am readings have been riddled by 5.9's, 6.9's, 6.5's etc. You get the picture. And yes so are we getting that same picture too. This is NOT going away. This is NOT getting easier. I know you all must have been reading my blogs and thinking to yourself (because you were too nice to say "out loud") this poor sucker...the reality of managing this has not even begun to surface.
Miss Emma has been sick to 3 days now. Momma took her to the Dr. today and she has a double ear infection. And her asthma is acting up like we haven't seen it in a while. She started off this morning at 6.0 (108) NICE! Midday 12.0 (216) NOT nice. Dinner 21.8 (392.4) call the on call Dr.
See this has never hapend to us before. Just like the day she was diagnosed has never happened to us before. I certainly did feel like someone tapped me on the shoulder this afternoon and introduced me to this disease once again. It hurt me. It hurt me bad. We did everything we could this past few days to avoid a call to the Dr. To avoid the next step. And that next step was administering fast acting. I know this is because she is sick. But it was a huge wake up call.
It was the actuality of cracking open that vile for the first time that ripped me. It read about how ever diabetic does this, how every parent troubles through this but i just read it. I felt compassionate for you all. But i had no freaking clue. But now i do. I guess these are times we need our support the most. These are the times we need to dig our heels in. Family and friends need to know what is going on. That is essential.
Well its late and it has been an intense day. We are moving on Friday and we are pooped. But i cannot go without metntioning the GOLD and the GREATEST. What a day to be Canadian.
