Yep I'm the worst! Ive won it! Avery has had this disease for almost 9 months now, I should know better! What was I thinking?? What was I doing?? Double check Wendy. ALWAYS double check. Let me explain.. It was about 4:00 pm and Avery asked if he could have a treat. Avery is a really great eater most of the time so when he asks for treats sometimes I really don't mind giving in. He wanted Hershey kisses. I check his BG, 124. Hershey kisses it is! I put his checker down, pick up his little brother and walk to bathroom really fast to turn my curling iron off. I get a phone call from a friend and start talking to her for a minute. Meanwhile my patient little Avery is following me around wanting his kisses. I get off the phone. "Mom! I need to pee!" I take Avery potty and then as soon as hes done "Can I have my kisses now?" Sure buddy I'm so sorry Ive been taking so long! I walk upstairs and grab the kisses from the fridge. He helps me count out 9 then he starts scarfing down. 9 kisses are 24 carbs. Am I missing something from this pretty detailed story?? Oh that's right, I forgot to pick up his checker and give him his insulin for the kisses WTH??
Fast forward this story to almost 2 hours later.. I'm sitting with Landon on my lap and I'm talking to my mom. Avery is downstairs watching TV. I look over at the table and I see the Hershey wrappers and my stomach drops. Did I give him his insulin? I counted out the kisses and looked at the carb count, but did I actually give him his insulin?? I run downstairs and check his little finger. Hes a whopping 398!! Oh hell! 398? Coming down maybe from who knows what number! I freak out, yell at myself and then correct him. Sad to say I have been chasing his high ever since! Its down to the high 200's now but its taken a bit.
I would like to thank my stupid distracted mind for this award. I couldn't have done it without you! I would also like to thank my lack of double checking and my hurried sense of attitude that has brought me to this point today.
Sorry Avery.. Mommy will "try" to never EVER do that again!
