I had a... um... "little"... brush with ketoacidosis this morning. Unlike the last time when I ended up in the emergency room and in intensive care with an insulin drop for two days, I was able get my bg levels down below 300 by just taking extra units here at home.
For all of you who know much about diabetes, you're fainting dead way because I didn't go to the hospital. Well, I am uninsured or I probably would have but I could also tell this was not at the level as the last time (when I fainted). I was very dizzy but not at the point of nausea and I wasn't dehydrated.
We had family emergency prayer (including Christopher calling his sister and waking her up).
I'm feeling much better but I need to stay on the sofa a day or two while healing completely. Thankfully, my bg levels have been staying level all day. You can rest assured I'll be eating meals at their scheduled time and get plenty of rest unlike this past week.
I have a doctor's appointment already on Friday when I'm picking up a new long term insulin that you only take once a day (although there are still the two to three shots of short term insulin injected each day so I'm actually adding a shot). He thinks this will go a long way to stabilizing my bg levels.
