This time I listened

I’m glad I’m not a slow learner. Last night, Eric went up to 280 at midnight, and I corrected him as usual and thought little of it - he’d swiped some chocolate milk from his brother, and I figured this high reading resulted from having taken more than I’d guesstimated he’d taken. But at 5:30, I tested him again and his sugar was… 269. It should’ve been lower, a LOT lower. The warning bells went off, and this time I listened - instead of trying to correct him again, I took a ketone reading. His ketones were 1.0 - what??? Took the ketones again, and got the same result. That’s never happened to me - I’ve never seen ketones in Eric’s blood without a really, really, really high BG (350 or more). So I put in a call to the clinic, got my marching orders for his syringe dose, gave it to him, and right now, I’m waiting for the lidocaine cream to finish doing its job so I can change his site. Gotta stop and retake his BG to make sure it’s headed in the right direction…
