What made it so great you ask? Yesterday morning before going to work I lowered my high alarm setting, I dropped it from 139 to 136. Instantly that makes it that much tougher to stay perfect. The second piece that made the streak great is that at 2am I had a blood sugar of 49. I would say 95 percent of the time when I'm low in the middle of the night my blood sugar then sky rockets. Not last night, after I tested I took two units of insulin grabbed a juice box and a fiber one bar. I knew I had a streak going I didn't want it to end because I over ate due to a low. When I woke up I was at 113 and feeling strong. I had my normal breakfast and headed to work. I was informed I'd be walking about ten miles as soon as I arrived. This was the third and biggest challenge of trying to stay perfect. To be perfectly honest I don't know how I did. I was able to work all day without going above 136. I must have tested ten times today because I couldn't believe that my blood sugars were staying around 75.
I'm a huge sports fan as everyone knows, when i reached the 24hr mark I quickly snapped a picture of my pump and said to myself "Oh my goodness he did it again" That line came from Chris Berman who uttered that line when Cal Ripken homered in the game where he would break Lou Gehrigs consecutive games streak. Cal homered the night before in the game that tied him with Lou Gehrig, Cal homering in back to back nights with a lot of pressure on him was unimaginable. It's not the same thing but I'm now going on hour 31 without a blood sugar over 136. If I'm lucky enough to get to 48hrs I'll be saying "Do you believe in miracles?"
