Thursday just after lunch my stomach suddenly felt off and I raced off to the bathroom. Little did I know that the bathroom would be where I would spend most of my time for the next three days. Whatever this sickness is it started with "sharky" on Wednesday and spread to everyone else in the family by the end of the day on Thursday. I'm happy to report that everyone is doing much better now but I have yet to completey shake this sickness.
Over three days I have lost almost ten pounds and have become severely dehydrated. Having toast just minutes ago has been my biggest meal in three days. As you can imagine this has been a very interesting few days of blood sugars.
When I got home from work on Thursday after hanging out with the toilet for an hour or so I was extremely weak and dizzy, just keeping my eyes open was a challenge. Being dizzy and unable to keep my eyes open I figured my blood sugar was very low, I unhooked my pump and headed to test. With a blood sugar of 81 I was very surprised but with no food in my system keeping the pump unhooked was the best idea. For the next three hours my blood sugars never went above 90. Before bed I reconnected my pump as my blood sugar was at 245 at 9pm. All day Friday my blood sugars would stay around 230, being unable to eat taking the normal amount of insulin to correct the high blood sugar wasn't the best of ideas.
Today things started to get just a little better. Blood sugars around 180 and being able to eat little more food is a good sign but I'm far from being myself. Tomorrow is a new day and hopefully better than today, I just want to be back to normal and on the bike.
