Any lighthearted mishaps to share?
- A few years ago, we invited some friends over to our house for a few drinks. They have 2 kids, and they put them to sleep in my son’s bed while I was in the bathroom. My son was asleep in my bed.
It was time to check his sugar, so I went into his bedroom (in the dark), pricked his finger, while noting a slight jump that he did when the lancet poked him (odd… that hasn’t happened in years).
I went back to the living room and proudly exclaimed that my son’s sugar was 102. It was our friend’s son that I checked. Good thing we’ve known each other for many years, and we all had a good laugh!
- My little Chihuhua who isn’t so little anymore was acting very strange after my son’s birthday party was over. Our same friends from the first story had stayed later than everyone else, and my friend got the bright idea to check my dog’s sugar to rule out hypoglycemia, because Chihuahuas can go low when they are small. We pricked her ear with a lancet and tested her BG!
