Very quick post

We're leaving at the crack of dawn tommorrow morning to go to flat cosmopolitan city for a wedding (congrats dearest one). I won't be back until monday night and don't know if I'll have a chance to blog or comment in the interim. The horror, the horror. Will she survive?

The one good thing about waking up to make a 6:15 flight is that it means I we don't have to wake up at 4am for a basal check. Because we'll already be up. Ugh.

Quickly quickly then as I still need to pack and do a couple of other things...


Our first night together was a little rough. I still had a half dose of Lantus coursing through my system and I against my better judgement decided to be a Good Diabetic and not mess with my 12 hour old basal program without consulting medical authorities first. Had I either a) called McClinic at midnight, or b) followed my instincts and programmed a 70% temporary basal, I would not have had a string of unnecessary eating incidents and a string of lows culminating at 55.

Today, however, has been bee-u-tiful. If the novelty will wear off, and I will stop using the bolus wizard when I would previously have said, eh, it's not worth taking a shot for that half a cookie, please don't tell me. Because I have not strayed over 160 or below 120 ALL DAY. (I should probably test before I say that, shouldn't I?)

Anyways, must pack before my eyelids collapse. Big smoochies everyone, see you next week!

Have a great time. Love the "string of unfortunate eating incident" line. I know those all too well.

Sounds better than my first day pumping which was more like "I have no strayed between 60 and 200 all day."

I'm glad it's working out so well for you! Have fun at the wedding.
