The antibiotics and sugar in his drip really helped. His numbers were great, until we brought him home. Trying to keep the boy quiet until hes 100% is hard! His appetite is back and thats all great.
A few significant things have happened.
Danger Dad spent the time in hospital with Reuben and it gave us an opportunity to re-open dialogue about our family routine and habits and things we could do to improve his management. It also gave him 48 hour responsibility for R's diabetes perhaps this was a blessing in disguise? Im sure hes gained confidence in his abilities.
We have formulated a few questions for the endos/DE's for our next appointment. They have switched up his insulin, so we are still doing MDI, Levemir and Novo Rapid, but dropped his basal by half , day and night, and are adjusting the meal time doses currently. Im looking forwards to not feeding the insulin all day and night. What I do want help with is -what do you feed your D-kids for supper to carry them through the night? Im prepared to try ANYTHING to get more stable night time reads. Please leave a comment and tell me your experiences/ideas. Danger Dad and I need sleep :)
