I'm sleep deprived. I mean really, really, really, sleep deprived. I'm using this blog this morning as my outlet. Justin's out of town, my sister won't answer her phone, and it's too early to bother anyone else!
Kendall's been very fussy. Yesterday she started having seizures again after her nap. She's had a low fever, but her ears look fine, and she's not congested at all. She sounds a little like she may have a sore throat...but I can't ever tell.
I ran 16 miles late yesterday afternoon as part of my training program for my upcoming Marathon. I drank plenty of Powerade and had 3 helpings of Gu...but apparently I didn't get enough water, because I've been achy and had a horrible tummy ache since I got home last night.
Being dehydrated (even if it's my own fault) sucks when you're taking care of a cranky Kendall alone. My head was a little fuzzy and during her nighttime routine I mistakenly gave her her morning dose of insulin instead of her bedtime dose. It's a pretty significant difference. I called the Diabetic Educators, and was instructed to do sugar checks every hour of the night. Even staying on top of it, her sugars dropped into the 20's. Super scary. So between me running to the bathroom to throw up and checking her sugars and watching for seizures all night, I didn't sleep at all.
Then I just got the text that our Monday nurse's car battery is dead.
I'm going to muster up the energy and get Kendall to the Pediatrician this morning and have her repeat blood draw as soon as I feel she's at a point where I can safely take her in the car without a very low blood sugar scare.
I'm feeling sorry for myself today. I know I'm blessed in so many ways, but seriously, normal would be really nice now and then. I just want sleep.
