Highs: They Run in our Blood ...



Have you ever seen an Endocrinologist speechless? Seeing them with nothing to say is the fun part.

What comes after . . . not so much.

The above picture depicts today's numbers. I thought it would be smart to let our viewers understand a "bad day" among the entirety of the Trio, not myself. The sad fact is that we all have bad numbers - super bad numbers. As you can see, when they all occur in one night, we are in for trouble.

Yet, as an optimist, hey! What's a bad A1C report? ? ? (cough cough) :)

When worried about the outcome of inevitable situations, (bad doctor appointments) the Type One Trio has learned to resort to other tactics beside concrete evidence such as our testers display . . . 



Initially, they will be upset . . . but really, how can you get mad at these faces?

Thankfully, we were able to find the source of our troubles! 

---- Faulty Insulin ---

After talking to our doctors, we came to the conclusion that the insulin had some definite issues. Both Hannah and Daniel drew out of the same vile of insulin, leading to the same effect on their blood sugars.

We resorted to syringes for them to help start the correction of the highs.

Once we reloaded the pumps and supplies with fresh insulin, our numbers began the downward descent towards good numbers! 

Thankfully, numbers are down into the 100-200s!  :)

 On a different note, we are all looking forward to the National Diabetes Awareness Month: November
