Flying Blind

Basketball season started this morning. Almost immediately, we were flying "blind". Concrete gym walls and nylon gym shorts conspire together to block any transmission of blood glucose levels via the Dexcom continuous glucose monitor. He was 86 with 5 units on insulin on board when the practice started.

Past experience with basketball taught me that it can, if he is under enough pressure or adrenaline, raise his BG, so we decided to go "old school" and go by how he felt. Right as practice ended, he was 75 steady. A success.

Murphy was rather startled by the sound of many bouncing basketballs. She decided to climb under my chair and go to sleep.
