Last night I got some...and it was amazing!
SLEEP, I'm talking about SLEEP!!
When I was going to bed I had tested Cara's blood sugar it was a tad higher then perfectly in range BUT I knew it was perfect for a much needed night of sleep.
When she runs high at night a correction bolus of insulin is needed which means the alarm is set for a blood sugar check at 2:00am. If Cara is perfectly in range at 11:30pm that means an alarm is set for a blood sugar check at 2:00am to make sure she stays perfectly in range. If Cara is low at 11:30 that means carbs are given, 15 minutes a re-check and then the alarm is set for a blood sugar check at 2:00am.
It has been almost 3 years of waking up at least once almost every single night to check blood sugar.
Type 1 diabetes has aged me more then I ever thought it would. The lack of good quality sleep at night is a killer but the guilt that if something ever happened to Cara while I was enjoying my sleep would literally be the death of me. So I wake up and check...but not last night.
Last night I slept, last night I even had a dream, I love remembering my dreams btw during this dream I found out that I was the Kardashian's half sister. Yes it was a GREAT dream...LOVE THE KARDASHIANS, LOVE and this morning it was even more funny telling my husband about it. His response to me being the long lost half sister of the Kardashians was "What half? your lower half?" Ya I got it, I have a BIG ASS!!
Great sleep last night equals a great morning and hopefully a great day. I even realized I need to increase Cara's basal over night a bit.
Another Win Win :)
