I actually feel like I haven't slept in days. Callans numbers have been crazy! He pretty much has been in the 200-500's on a consistent basis since Thursday. But he will have crazy lows too. Like last night. At 11:30p he was 388, and at the 2a check he was 60! For breakfast this morning he was 102. At lunch his meter said HI and it wasn't telling me hello! He hasn't had any ketones though, but this is driving me insane! If we adjust his Lantus to a higher dose it seems like he has consistent lows, and no matter how much Novolog we give him he always seems high! Except at the times when you don't want him too low .. i.e. night!
My other children probably think they have diabetes too. I have checked Corbin & Callan so many times in the past couple of days, my husband thinks I'm going nuts. Corbin is always hungry (not like him at all!) and thirsty! Cason has ginormous diapers without a lot of liquids. They always come up normal. Does the paranoia ever stop?
Cason has had a tough couple of days too. He had an allergic reaction to a flipping french fry! He immediately got red welts on his face and back, and he didn't even swallow it!! He already doesn't want to eat solid foods, and his crazy food allergies make me not want to feed him anything new! He can survive off of milk, pureed veggies, fruits, and yogurt for the rest of his life, right?

We see our endo on Tuesday, as well as a dermatologist for Cason. It's a 7 hour round trip. I'm super nervous. I have been a failure at faxing in Callans numbers, and keeping good log books. Hopefully she will not be to upset at me and understand that we just have a lot going on!
My husband and I are both not feeling so great. My body hurts. ALL THE TIME. Right now my lower back feels like it's on fire! I have random pains everywhere. I'm sure it's all from stress. I just want to feel normal again!
