I'm home for the second day in a row with a sick kiddo. You know what that means: crazy-high stubborn blood sugars and ketones. Only trace amounts of ketones, but still... another thing to worry about.
When the endo's nurse finally returned my call, she gave the standard list of to-do's: change pump site, give a correction dose by shot, monitor blood sugars (duh). She also had us crank up a temporary basal rate of 200%. That made me a little uneasy, but, it's been more than an hour now and Rosie is still high according to her CGM, so I guess that wasn't so crazy after all.
Ketones, even trace amounts, put me on edge. It's kind of like getting her A1C number each quarter... somehow I feel like I've failed as a pancreas when Rosie winds up with ketones. Of course I know that's not true, but that's where my mommy-guilt mind takes me.
Here's hoping for a ketone-free weekend!
