One Thing to Improve - DBlog Week

It's the 3rd Annual Diabetes Blog Week!

Today is day number three - 'One Thing to Improve'

One Thing to Improve

One thing to improve, huh?! Oh my. There is always, always, always, something to improve.

If I had to say, as a Mama of a kid with Type 1, something I would like to improve, it would be my ability to wait 15 minutes while treating a low. A simple thing, wouldn't you think? Not so simple. I'm like a hound dog waiting for 15 minutes. I relent at about 10 and see where we are headed.

And standard deviation, that's always one I can improve upon.

And the ability to run an extended bolus with a temp basal to bring down a high. I pretty much rock it right now, but sometimes we crash and burn with a low in the 50's. 

Ok, so there's three. Everyone happy now?!

GOD I love that you do the combo with the temp. Haven't rocked that maneuver in awhile. Need to revisit it!!! Love to you and Grace and the family. xo

Ditto! Temp yes - extended bolus? I still can't swag those for cupcakes or fruit rollups. You go!

AHH! The 15 minutes is SO hard sometimes! I definitely feel you with that one!

You are funny. You do so much well! Waiting does suck the big one.
