So Thursday morning, the first day of school, before breakfast she was a beautiful 108. I was a little nervous about her possibly going low, so I didn't pre-bolus her at all. (We typically ALWAYS do.) I waited until 8:50 made her a waffle with syrup and bolused as she ate. I dropped her off around 9:15, school starts at 9:25 and hoped for the best.
At 10:15 I received this text...
|She texts no words only pictures. This picture shows me everything I need. I can see what the sensor is doing, I can see her fingerstick number, and how much IOB.|
The nurse called at 12:25 right as she was going outside to recess she was 128. That's is an iffy number in my mind. The weather here is beautiful and I wanted to make sure that she could play and not have to worry about going low. Recess is 30 minutes and remember she hasn't eaten anything since 8:50. So I decided to play it safe and do one tablet, 4 carbs. Well, 30 minutes later she came in and was 125. So, she bolused as she was going to lunch. Again no pre-bolusing means she will spike a little higher! I'm trying to figure out setting and redo basal rates but for the first few weeks I just let things play out as I don't want to change too much. I think she beeped again around 2:15 and was 226 on her CGM and 202 on a fingerstick, but she had like 2.65 iob so I let it ride again. At 3:50 the nurse calls with her dismissal number and she was 148, slightly high but a GREAT first day!!
