Sometimes I have no idea what we would do without Dexcom. I am torn about the issue of relying too heavily on technology but when it works like this I don’t see how not to. He was at 47 and going down. He was sound asleep and had no idea. I had put my phone on silent because I kept getting high notifications and he was just eating dinner at 10pm. So I “knew” he would be elevated all night. Well it’s a good thing my husband was at work at 130am and was able to call and wake my daughter who then woke me up. I jump out of bed seeing the RED 47 and go to his room and he is sound asleep while his dexcom alarm is going off.
I wake him and he instantly realizes he is low. He is shaky and sweaty. It was so unexpected. I asked him if he may have over dosed for the soup he ate at dinner but he said he calculated exactly for it and he ate a few pieces of candy even. Anyhoo he had a
Granola bar and milk and we all settled back into bed but it just makes me think about all the what if’s.
