You don't deserve to be whipped, just told that this kind of stuff 
happens to everyone.  Our bodies sometimes just do strange things 
that we cannot predict.  The pump helps but cannot take care of all 
the variability - I did everything ok over the weekend but woke up 
this morning with a bg of 225 and sneezing and coughing...  

You're among friends, and we won't bash you for being human...  just 
review your day and see if anything out of the ordinary happened that 
you can remember to adjust for in the future.  Then give those little 
ones a hug and keep on going...
