Re: [IPk] happy xmas & new year

Lovely to read your story. The other night Grace was exhausted and fell
asleep with her clothes on. I checked her and she was 3.6mmols, I just set a
temp basal of 0.05 for an hour ( normally 0.3) and checked her,she was
5.6mmols and was same in the morning. I sat choked on the side of the bed
that I could let her sleep and similarly kept remembering last year when she
needed to be in the buggy at times for walks or was hyper and socialising
was fraught due to highs or her plaintive whining to have the same as other
kids. Grace was only 3mths dx at Christmas 2003 and now pumping three
It is the best Santa pressie ever and it's lovely to be able to celebrate!
Have a wonderful new year everyone!
p.s. I set temp basals this weather for lows at night as I'm wary of falling
asleep and not resuming!
Mum to Grace 5yrs dx 10.03 pumping Oct 6th. and Brian 9yrs
