A Bit Worried...

I'm a bit worried about Adam.

He just hasn't been acting himself lately. Truth be told, he's acting like he was before he was diagnosed - incredibly irritable, sleepy, taking naps.

He's had a cold for over a week. Just a minor one, but the coughing hasn't gone away. But he sleeps all night and doesn't cough, so I haven't taken him in. His blood sugars have been totally out of whack since Sunday, though - really high, so I think I might need to change up some things. He keeps saying that he just doesn't feel good...this is the first time he's indicated that high blood sugar makes him feel like CRAP. I feel so sad for him.

If he's not feeling better tomorrow, I may just take him to his pediatrician.

With kids...the worrying just never ends.


  1. Oh no! Poor little guy :(
    I hope he starts feeling better soon.

  2. Hmmm . . . I would do the same. If his bgs are high he could be fighting an infection? Nate has that same lingering cough - very annoying AND we've had the high blood sugars too!

    I hope he's feeling better soon!

  3. Having a cold and high blood sugars just feels crappy. My 7 year old is going through the same thing. Little viruses can cause so much havoc! I hope he is feeling better soon!

  4. Awwww, poor little guy. I hope he's feeling better soon!

  5. WTH...JOE TOO PEOPLE!!! There is a cyber virus roaming around here!

    Joe has had a cough and highs for a few days. I think we are just starting to break them off now. Sounds like a good idea for sure Stephanie...another thing I would do sometimes...depending if I am with Joe to watch his numbers real I would crank up the temp basal on the pump to get his numbers down to a more "reasonable" range while he was sick. would last a couple of weeks...THEN...Egad!!! YIKES...! LOW CITY.

    (((HUGS))) to you and Adam.

  6. Thanks guys! Reyna, I took your advice and did a temp basal increase - it worked! He's 143 right now. :)

  7. We have been battling a virus for 1 week now. It's been crazy. Andrew has been off of insulin for over a month and has had to start back on some basal because his blood sugars are higher. Did you check him for ketones? I would keep an eye on those if his sugars are going up with the virus. Andrew was battling small-mod. amounts with this virus. I hope Adam feels better soon!

  8. I'm sorry he's not feeling well :( It's always okay to go to the doctor -- especially when the weekend is looming!

    PS - I met your neighbor today at the capitol! SWEET!!!! I told her to hug you for me :)
