Re: [IPp] Your thoughts please....

Change of temp seems to make a difference to Grace. I also find, if she is
static but excited she goes low and active and excited she goes high, If the
cold delayed digestion / cramp? might that have accounted for dipping? Grace
goes very pale if "dropping" too fast for her system.
We have a water slide and often the water is freezing and I have noticed a
pallor to Grace when she comes in very cold. Paler / ghostlike in comparison
to the other kids. Some of whom are blue!!!! this is Ireland :O)))
Hope it was a once off
All the very best
