Yes, but she was back to normal at 2 hours which meant if she didn't eat she
would still drop.  Because she was eating at that time she should have used
the unused insulin rule to calculate what to subtract from the carbs she was
eating.  Same as if she had eaten 2 hours before.  If she bolused for all
the carbs she ate, which she did, she would be low after all the insulin
kicked in, which she was.
