Last night I went to bed high (373). I did a full correction - 5 units. Normally I would be afraid to do a full correction but I'm so tired of being high while on this trip and Novolog hasn't really been working well for me anyway, so I thought, "What the heck?" This morning I woke up and checked my receiver to see what had happened overnight. This depressing but also encouraging (if that makes any sense) sight met my eyes.
See that backwards J hook on the 16th from 12 am - 12pm? Yeah, that was what had happened overnight. Novolog is USELESS!!
My glucometer read 313. I did another full correction, and a full bolus for breakfast. 2 hours later I'm down to 229. I probably have another 2 hours to go before I reach my final threshold.
---> I would NOT have to wait this long with Apidra. It starts working in 15 minutes and lasts for 2-3 hours. Novolog starts working in 20-30 minutes and lasts 3-4 hours. I NEED Apidra!
Then, it finally happened. My Dexcom sensor that's been giving me so much trouble this week finally failed. I called Dexcom Tech Support and they said they'd send a replacement, but I won't be able to put in a new one until I get home tomorrow night. I'm also going to be sending Dexcom some sort of tech report via email.
Today should prove to be a fun day. I am hoping to go to the Appaloosa Museum (horses of the Native Americans!), and Uncle Csaba and Aunt Lisa are treating us to lunch. :)
