Wild card - Blood Sugar Nirvana or Moronic Moment. (inspired by Kelly Kunik at Diabetesaliciousness) Blog about the time you ate a meal that tends to spike you to the moon, but your perfectly calculated and timed bolus kept your blood sugar happy. Or tell us about that time your brain had a little diabetes-blip and you did something you think is “stupid”. (Because chances are, we’ve done it too!!) Go ahead, brag about your triumph or commiserate about your d-blooper.
Solitude blankets the house. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The children were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of SpongeBob danced in their heads. With husband in his kerchief and I in my cap, wait, that’s not right!
Soft snuffling snores stopped by
BEEEEE BOOO BEEEE BOOO BEEEE BOOO
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter, hissing a naughty word as the silence was shattered. I patted myself down from head to foot thinking my CGM sensor had fallen out – kaput.
As I patted my thoughts were many and frantic. It’s a trial sensor I thought in a panic. I searched all two pump screens remembering that the sensor held all info for insurance means.
Finally my husband had an ah-ha look on his face. He laughed as he lunged and started to race . . . for his laptop.
“The battery is low warning it may soon be dead. I’ve shut it up now, so let’s get back to bed!” my husband exclaimed. We had a good laugh and soon closed our eyes. Blissful sleep returned. To all a good night.
Not as easy to rhyme as it seems but this is my favorite d-blooper.
