What if you have done everything you can to educate someone on things like treating a low and then when the time comes for them to do it they cant remember how it is done correctly? Do you continue to trust your Child with that person? I Left my daughter in the care of someone who I should be able to trust. She had to get two units of Humalog at dinner because her sugar was over 200. When she gets that extra insulin we ALWAYS have to check before bed to make sure she has not dropped too low. When he checked her blood sugar it was 54, he treated it with a cup of milk. (1st and second mistakes, 1 milk is not fast acting, 2 only 11 carbs not 15, and btw glucose tabs were on hand) , He checked it again about ten minutes later and it went up to 62 , so he gave her 1! glucose tab that had only 4 grams of carbs. then NOTHING ELSE. no recheck to make sure it even got to normal!!!!!!!!! Hours later I come home I ask my questions .. I get this story. IMMEDIATELY i checked my daughters levels and it was up to 189. AWESOME THANK You Jesus. BUT WHAT IF? What if this did not happen ? What if it was one of those lows like one time before it took three tries to get it back up and he never would have known because he did not check again!? What if I never thought to ask because I trusted this person. It scares me to think of the consequences of the what if's . I ask what I can do to help them learn and they tell me they just have a hard time remembering unless they practice it regularly. but how do you practice treating lows that don't come around that often to practice ? Anyone else have these problems?
Sorry to be so long winded. I am frustrated and I need help!! I feel so lonely when it comes to managing my daughter's care.
