That is the only way to describe them.
What is "them" you ask?
First of all, I hate numbers. I hate math to be quite frank. But the good Lord has a sense of humor and gave me a job that involves math. LOTS OF IT.
What job it is you ask? Motherhood? Nope.
That job would be: Pancreas. I have to be a pancreas for Love Bug, which requires a lot of MATH.
Being a pancreas hasn't been going so well lately. (remember I didn't exactly ask for this job, or purse it it for that matter.) Love Bug's number's have been all over the place. Dexie looks like she is ride a roller coaster. It's not pretty.
It is not because I haven't tried either. I have tried everything I could think of. We changed I:C ratio's. Then we tried basal rates. Then we added more basal rates. Then the basal rates were too high. Then they weren't enough.
I have noticed some improvement. Very little though, and it's frustrating. So frustrating that after 2 months of these roller coaster numbers I decided to do something about it.
I heard other D-Moms doing it and wondered if it would be right for us. I researched, I listened to other D-moms and talked to them about it.
I had decided to wait until our next Endocrine appointment and talk to the doctor about it. Then on Friday I found out we wouldn't have out next appointment until September and decided that I couldn't wait that long.
I called and talked to Miss Sally (our wonderful CDE) and she agreed it might help.
So, this morning I went to the Endocrine's office picked up a bottle this:
Yep, I jumped on the Apidra "band wagon" but not just because everyone else is "doing it".
I did it to (hopefully) get Love Bug's numbers under control.
Because you see, I don't just jump on "band wagons" lightly, especially when it comes to my daughters health.
I do research, get advice and pray about it. That is the only way I know how to do things.
Now, I'm praying that it works!
