A Case of the Mondays
Today I had a serious case of the Mondays...
It was not good.
Between Lovebug's roller coaster numbers, a scare at preschool today and a mess up with my medical supply company I am at my wits end. Not to mention everything I need to get accomplished tonight, before 8pm. I would REALLY like to sit down and watch Chuck tonight. Only 50 minutes to go. At least I am checking one thing off my list by blogging now!!
Back to the day's events. Lovebug woke up with a great bg of 139. It went downhill from there. No pun intended.
She had a low of 43 at preschool this morning. I got the call she was low and they gave her some Smarties and a juice pouch. I told them I was on my way over because they couldn't get the meter to work. They were going by what Dexie said her blood sugar was. After arriving at the school, I walked past the preschool room and down to the office where Lovebug was at. The preschool teacher stops me and told me that Lovebug threw up. Oh wonderful. Great, her first stomach flu bug since being diagnosed. I had all these "wonderful" thoughts running through my mind. You see Lovebug doesn't get sick very often and when she does she gets REALLY sick. So, when her teacher told me she threw up I was scared. I was thinking emergency room this afternoon and a possible hospital stay. Not exactly what I had pictured my Monday to look like.
Well, I got to the office and Lovebug was her normal happy self. Thank God. Come to find out she didn't throw up at all, she was just gagging and saying her tummy hurt. She was also walking around in a daze and seemed to be confused. Crap. I knew they were going by Dexie because they couldn't get the meter to work, which meant Lovebug was much lower then the 43 that Dexie said she was. SCARY. It made me think of Wendy and her experience with Glucagon just a couple days ago.
After being an emotional wreck after that I came home to find out supplies for Dexie had come, along with some supplies the supply company kept NOT sending me. I have been fighting with the for the past 8 weeks to send me the blood ketone strips that I was due. My insurance says I can get one box a month. Well I get three months of supplies at a time so I should have gotten 3 boxes of ketone strips back in July. Nope, I only got one and I have been fighting to get the other two ever since. They FINALLY worked it out and I got them today only to find out whoever packed the box put Blood GLUCOSE strips in the box instead of Blood KETONE strips. AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Called them AGAIN and it is fixed but I can't get them until I send the glucose strips back to them. Seriously, it wasn't my mistake, it was yours folks!!! Why should I have to wait because of YOUR mistake?? Oh, well. Hopefully when I get them they will finally be right, or maybe that is too much to ask? I don't know.
All I know is right now I have a whole list of things that need to get done before 8pm and I now have 35 minutes. Ta Ta for now friends!
