So, I probably won't be winning the Mother of the Year contests any time soon - - -
Tuesday night I forgot to give Nate his bedtime dose of NPH so when I checked him at 11p he was in the 400's. My mom had stayed with my kids for a few hours while I went out to dinner with some friends & it was so nice & so relaxing & so wonderful. I can't even tell you how badly I needed that time for myself. It was greatness. Only to get home and realize that I was the worst mom EVER.
I was a little bit frantic when I 1st checked him - just trying to figure out why he was so high. He was low at his bedtime snack so I thought maybe I had over-carbed him. I posted on Facebook for some help from my D-moms and they rocked! All jumping in and giving me advice and encouragement . It was one of the responses that got me thinking. She said - "I'm so glad you posted this because I forgot to give ------- her Lantis tonight." She also said "This post just reminded me.". HOLY CRAP! That is when it dawned on me that I had forgotten Nate's NPH.
I called the 24-hours emergency number and the Endo had me use Nate's correction scale to bring him down but I had to check his bg and for ketones every hour to 2 hours. I was too nervous to sleep and really what is the point when the alarm is going off every hour or so - right? So, I pulled an all-nighter to take care of my son. My poor son who had to suffer all night along with me because I screwed up.
I think he's forgiven me now but I am having a hard time forgiving myself!
Please forgive all of my rambling ways - - - I am still not caught up on my sleep!
