Ten days without a post-- Yikers!
Sorry about that.
To make matters worse, this isn't going to be much of a post.
I've been trying to write something for the past two hours, but it's been almost impossible.
- I'm exhausted;
- Ryan left this afternoon to teach a week-long class in Minnesota (I miss him already);
- Joseph has been high pretty much all day-- he was 333 an hour and a half ago (Damn!);
- and Joseph's persistent highs could be the result of a brewing illness, since Evan is sick with some kind of nutty virus in which she feels perfectly fine for several hours, then spikes a raging fever and is absolutely miserable for a number of hours, after which she's fine.
Oh yes, and twenty minutes ago -- upon hearing a frighteningly loud "thud"-- I ran upstairs, flung open Evan's bedroom door, and found my little girl lying on the floor next to her bed-- hysterical and burning up yet again. It took fifteen minutes of cuddling and cajoling to get her to take some children's ibuprofen, and to help her fall back asleep .
Another five to set up enough pillows to catch her should she fall out of bed again.
Man, it's gonna be a long week.
But hey, I do have some things I'd like to share -- and people, I may just get some windows in which to do it.
There's a good chance I'll have a couple of hours to myself this week. If at all possible, I promise to fill you in on Joseph's second experience at diabetes camp (this one might take two posts) and our week-long break from diabetes management.
And if I'm lucky, maybe I'll have time to update you all on what we've been doing with Joseph's basal rates since his last endo visit.
Right now, however, I've got to go check my boy-- fingers crossed, he's coming down.
But not too fast.
