2 am talk

I went to check Grace's blood sugar at 2 am last night and this is our conversation -

Click click click. The darn clicker clicks, but it won't draw blood.
I cannot see as I don't have my glasses on, so maybe the setting is wrong.

I click on her pinky finger, always a 2 am finger. Usually first try gets it for me.

Click click click. Nothing.
Click click click. Nothing.

Here is where I curse. Under my breath. Quietly ;0)

A tiny little thumb appears from under the covers.
A tiny little smile creeps across her face while her eyes are closed.

"Mom, here's my thumb. It's a tremendous bleeder."

OMG! I could just eat her up! Too cute and I had a "for f*ck-sake" escape on exhalation at for my 2am check...ERROR 5! UGH.

Pam said...

I got the ERROR 5 at 1am, and honestly don't remember the 3am cause I was too damned tired! (Pretty sure she was in range, though!)

Joanne said...

Awwww, how sweet! Elise freaked out during the 3 am check... tucked her hands under her body and yelled, "don't check my blood shure!" She was still asleep, but I guess she could sense me coming.

I hate it when the hole driver doesn't do it's job in the middle of the night. I rub the inside of Ellie's palm when she's sleeping and she magically opens her fingers for's a little sad sometimes for me. But I love it when she makes a joke on a heavy bleeder, "mom, we gotta bleeder!". It makes me crack up in a D sort of way!!!

Your girl makes me smile. What a great sense of humour and use of language! And in the middle of the night.
