Rosie's surgical procedure went very well yesterday. We had to be there at 6:30am, and we were home by 11am. We couldn't have asked for nicer nurses- we are blessed to have such a great childrens' hospital nearby!
Rosie's blood sugar was 145 right before surgery... amazing, considering all the morning highs she's had lately. After surgery she was 209, and she stayed in the lower-to-mid 200's for a couple of hours.... then her numbers really shot up. By midnight she was 600, despite having been on a 200% temp basal for a couple of hours. It was crazy. I changed her site to a tummy site (she seems to get better numbers with those) and by morning she was back down in the lower 200's with no ketones. Whew!
Today she's been fine. Still running in the lower 200's, which obviously is high, but nothing that's really worrying us. We're treating the numbers and moving on, just like any other day.
