Firsts :)

I am a freshman in High School, so this weekend was supposed to be full of firsts! Football game, Homecoming Dance, fun!!!!! But something else was first. First pump failure....... Ughhhhhhh.....

 So I changed my site before bed,which I KNOW is bad but I was waiting until the battery died/after the game. nd my mom was fine with testing me, as she does pretty much every night. 1 am my BG was 306 mg/dL. Not crazy, but enough we suspected the pump.... Popped in a new inset, plugged the current tubing in, because the tubing looked fine, the insulin was  good 5 hrs ago, and it had been sitting in the kitchen. refilled cannula. ezBG and sleep.

 at 1, I was 280ish. Coming down, getting insulin. 2 am, finally time to correct  without rage bolusing, 274. ezBG, sleep. 4 am 254. Ketones negative (mayyybe trace but not quite), so not enough to worry about.

 Now, 281, but I needed a morning basal adjustment anyway. Finally I corrected with a shot. We'll see how this goes. If I get back in range by lunh I think I will eat a cookie. ( Lunch ratio is working great and I'm weighing the cookie ...)

What's up?

Hey everyone! Wow, Diabetes Cuteness is getting seen! Weird to me, but cool 😊

πŸ“±I have an Instagram for DC: cutediabetes I will definitely try to link to statigram soon!

My homecoming is Saturday! Yay!!!!!πŸ‘—

I almost ran out of cartridges this week due to insurance/shipping issues πŸ˜“ and I don't know anyone with the same cartridges near here... They should come soon! (what?!?! No emoji for fingers crossed!)

I am trying to run more ( like 2 miles/ 5 ish days / week) and mixing powerade and powerade zero is a great way to stay hydrated and keep stable bg with a 50% basal reduction . Not medical advice✋ but I also tend to get crazy stings of lows 9 hours after a run... πŸƒ

This was my Monday crazy thoughts from my iPod. I'm crazy today... I know πŸ™‹πŸ˜ŠπŸŽΆπŸŽˆ

Friday 5!

Hello everyone! Finally posting again! It's my Friday 5 today.. ( like Friday 6?  I love Six Until Me! )

Anyway, here we go:

 1.  Meter Fashion- As you might know, I have a One Touch Ping System. My pump is pink (cute!!!!!) and my meter/remote doesn't come in colors. BUT there are skins for the meters. I had a coupon for a free pump skin, but the way I wear my pump, I don't think it would get used, so I ordered a meter skin instead. I got a purple one :) (Umm yesss. I am such a girl.) I have to say, I love it, it is good protection, and a splash of color.

2.  Reading- Please read Diabetes on the Side. I read a lot of D blogs but this one is cool (: The little girls are so cute! ( I love little kids!)

3.   CGM!- You probably knew this already, but- Dexcom G4 is approved! I am so excited because  I am obviously in love with the things... And colorful? Excuse me? I likes it.  Very excited and hoping my endo likes the idea.

4. Apps-The App Store has a lot of nice aps for BG related stuff.  But honestly my favorite carb-counting app? My Fttness Pal. No contest. Click here for the website. It's actually for calories but they include carbs and there are so many foods!

5. I was low- Last night, after trending high at mn, I was 60 (insert 1/2 juice box, I am super sensitive to sugar @night) retest 42 (whole juice) 55, (1/2 Tbs. Honey) before I came up. It was weird.

Happy bolusing and may the BG's be ever in your favor!

Update Time :D

Hey guys!

I have been sooo bad about posting!!!

I am so busy these days... and diabetes is so much less thought at this point in my life. (knock on wood)

Going to the endocrinologist tomorrow (A1c.. Fingers crossed!)

Anything new? Well, I tried a thigh site. I like it but it got tugged on resulting in a vampire site.

Hopefully I will post again as soon as possible :)
