I am not referring to a mood state of low. I have posted many a times regarding the same issue (my kids hypo unawareness) and here we go again.
We pick her up from the park (she was with her two older sisters) and load them into the van. We perform a routine check and........
Ready for this 1.2 mmol. If you live in the US multiply by 18. Yes I know, I gasped, as my wife scrambled for a juice box which she inhaled. I peeled into a 7-11 to grab more juice.
I was so disturbed, and shaken by this low that we just sat in front of the store in shock, of course, nursing the sugar back up into a safe range.
Like no sign at all. She did not look sweaty, she wasn't shaky, didn't feel hungry, actually told us she felt fine. Her natural complexion could land her a roll in a vampire movie, but what the hell. And yes we double checked the reading.
Then my wife turned to me and said, "I am so glad we picked her up when we did." If we were 10-15 minutes later the outcome makes me nauseous to ponder.
Once again we had a very close encounter with a potentially deadly outcome.
Just needed to air this and get it off my chest. Just checked her she is 10 mmol and I am okay to sleep now.
I feel selfish complaining, when people are fleeing their countries for fear of being shot or poisoned by radiation. It does keep me humble, but nevertheless it doesn't make my worry any less.
I love my kid, more then myself, and the thought of not having the technology due to financial reasons, or because it is not child friendly, really chews me up inside.
I have started to prey again and I hope and prey that she soon starts to feel and sense when she is low. Please GOD, help me out here.
