<< my suagr was
How i wished I was inside Kap's body sometimes, easier to see what is going
on in there! He is starting to have the normal ordinary signs of highs and
lows. Remember when I said he always went high during basketball, baseball,
sledding etc. Well, on Saturday, he had practice (basketball) 3-6pm - he was
185 - pre practice, lunch was at 1pm - so 2 hrs had passed - but he did have
a large lunch. Anyway
he was playing guard position - and he was moving a lot - about 30 minutes
into practice he started hurting on the bottom of his foot. Not ankle but
bottom. I looked at his foot - no sign of bruise or anything, and took his
bgs - he was 52, treated w/ Pepsi and p/b crackers, - still 30 minutes later
he was 42 (treated again) foot was still hurting him but it was coming and
going - few minutes his foot hurt then it would stop - back and forth -
hurt/stop - checked again his bgs was 52 - foot doing the same thing. I had
him sit out until he was back up to 100. He played rest of practice w/o low
and Foot had stopped hurting.
BTW - he was not connected to pump, we had taken it off to have pictures made
and he asked if he could keep it off during practice.
Pain in Foot w/ Low!
He has shown a history of going low the day before he gets sick. Late last
night he started running high - low 200s and during the 2 am check - I gave
him a bolus of 1 unit and he woke up fine. But went down hill fast. By 10am
he was 400s - HI all day into the evening at 7pm he was back to 70s He didnt
eat anything except breakfast - sipped diet sprite all day. He had 8 units
of Humalog - #s would come down - but go right back up. Also - no ketos.
He felt sick and sleepy. To the touch he felt like he had a high fever.
According to thermometer it was 98.9. We had changed his site last night -
it was 24 hrs old but tape was coming off - after he took it off - you could
tell it was infected. We used neosporine on it. Could a site infection
cause the bgs to rise. Just how much infection does it take to cause high
Thanks for Listening!
