So tonight I got to meet an amazing musician named George Canyon. For those of you who don’t know, he’s a Canadian country singer who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 14. He has done such amazing things. He’s a spokesperson for Animas, he’s held concerts that were free for diabetics and their families, and he’s always happy to meet other diabetics. He was such a nice person and tonight I fulfilled my wish to meet him. I even got him to sign my pump :)
*immediately feels low and drinks juice*
*brushes teeth again*
Ugh so I’m 22 mmol/l and I have a ton of reading to do for my classes but I’m kind of dizzy and I don’t think I’m going to take in any of the information. Whatever, I guess I’ll do it anyway and hope for the best.
So my sister went to test my blood sugar last night because she knew I’d been high, but I woke up, started talking to her, and tested myself. I was 16 so I gave myself a correction and I woke up in the morning at 4.4. The only problem is I don’t remember doing any of this, and I didn’t even know I’d given a correction until she told me this morning.
It’s almost 3 am right now and I have 1.0 ketones and I feel pretty sick and I can’t go to bed. This is the first time I’ve had a higher than normal ketone reading and I feel so awful. I changed my site, took an injection, and am drinking a lot of water. I guess I just need to wait and see now..
So I changed my site and took the old one out. It wasn’t even kinked or anything. Now I have no idea what’s going on but my corrections weren’t working so I figured it was worth a shot.
Okay, so I think my pump should be arriving tomorrow. Fingers crossed…
We called medtronic but we’re in the states and their pumps are a bit different so they couldn’t send me one right away and I guess the 24-hour hotline can’t get pumps sent so we have to call again in the morning. Great.
So my pump died at Disney. I guess it’s not the happiest place on earth after all…
