My wife and I debated on what to do, correction dose was next, but I wanted to use a syringe, being suspicious of the site. We opted for the needle, a full unit for the correction dose was given. We gave her a big bottle of water to drink to flush the ketones from her system.
About and hour and fifteen minutes later she had dropped from 600 plus to 90 or so, that could have not felt very good. Strange thing is, she never acted sick, lethargic or tired. She was fine, looked normal. I wonder how many families see children with diabetes and wonder what the “fuss is about”. I guess those people, who seem to be too numerous, should take a walk in someone else’s shoes for a while. I try to do that when interacting with people, its called compassion and empathy.
There was a guy a couple of thousand years ago that did the same thing, he said something to the like “treat others the way you want to be treated”. But then again at church I have to interact with some people who claim to be His followers and I hear the whispers about my kids and my cause. My guess is that He hears that too, so I don’t worry. Hypocrites are everywhere, I need only to worry about me so I’m compassionate, understanding and live by what I say.
What do they say about your kids?
