Hey ya'll - don't know how many (if any) this will apply to - but I'm throwing it out there anyhow... After all these years, I have found something new to keep me up at night. My wife and I have a 2 year (+ a few months) old son and another one on the way. So far, my son is (thank G-d) D- free but my hypoglycemia unawareness scares the heck out of me where parenting responsibilities are concerned. I was watching a video with my son the other day, went to the kitchen to test (it'd been a little while since I tested last) and I was 36. Now, he was fine and I was able to get myself back to functioning normally in about 20 minutes but i can't help but wonder - what happens if he hurts himself or gets in trouble and I'm mid-low. I'm hoping to pick up a CGM soon but - nothing today is 100% - so I'm wondering - am I the only one worried by this scenario?
Oh - the other fun thing is my son thinks my watermelon glucose tablets are his favorite candy so when we're out - i'm low and low on tablets, I get to wrestle to toddler for sustenance... I'm pretty sure this crosses me off the parent of the year awards, LOL
Thanks for any input any of you may have t' share!
