Which lesson is that? That one (one of many I’ve learned and I’m sure, many more I will learn) would be the one about writing a post about a “perfect day.” I thought long and hard before writing that one. I really, really did not want to jinx myself. But, I did – or rather diabetes did. I’ve been thinking about it though and I think we all need “perfect days.” I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty sure I’d give up trying to… ahem… “manage this disease” if there weren’t days of sunshine and smiles and perfect numbers, every now and then. When I get a 104, I announce (to the husband, since he’s usually the only one here w/ me), “Wow, I could make a TV commercial!” And, I’ve thought some more (I know, it’s dangerous), that we need to write about the perfect days not just the OMG days.
So yesterday, after eating lunch out, I came home with a HIGH (300+) number. Pushed the Ping Pump buttons, drank water (and more water), and waited for it to come down – even switched the lancet as it hurt to poke the fingers. Ate a little dinner (meat/veggies), bolused another correction. Then, it started going down… and down – not terrible down but it did seem to be moving rather swiftly. There’s a juice box next to the bed and I even brought the meter back to the bedroom. Survived the night (yes, I got up once to test) and today has been better.
I can do this, we can do this – but it sure does get exasperating at times! But, you know that…
They’re tiny daffodils – a gift last year that I planted and – wow –
they showed up this year!
