The first snowfall of the year is magical!
It casts is spell on all of us as it blankets our world in white.
We got a few flurries earlier this week... and today.... SNOW! Big, fat, white flakes falling from the sky all day!
I love being inside with the Christmas tree lit and watching it snow. It's beautiful!
(Once Christmas is over, though, it can warm up. My love for winter ends on January 1st. Unfortunately, Ohio weather does not cooperate.)
This morning we woke up to those big, fat, flakes falling outside. Swirling around and landing on the lawn. It was cold... freezing! Highs in the 20's this week.
But that wasn't the only thing in the 20's today.
This is what greeted us on Sweetpea's meter shortly before lunch.
Here's the most disturbing part.
She was fine. She said she was hungry. That's it. J tested and that's what we saw.
Just hungry. Nothing else. She was playing. Chasing the kitten. Strolling around her dolls. Nothing abnormal.
In a way, this is a good thing, I suppose. I'm GLAD she wasn't passed out or unable to move.
But it SCARES ME!
How can you be 26 and not know?
It happened at school once, too. She was 36 (which was a previous record for lows) and totally fine. Playing with the doll house. Walking down the hall. Answering questions.
It makes me wonder....
At what point will she lose consciousness? Will there be warning or will she just pass out? What is going on inside that little body that I just can't see?
She came up with no real problem. A juice box went down. Her bg went up to 56 15 minutes later. And kept climbing.
We went on with our day like nothing had happened. We kept getting dressed and headed out into that beautiful snow for our JDRF Walk Awards Luncheon.
But I'm left with a very unsettled feeling.
WHY can't she feel it? WHY does she appear to be totally fine?
What's YOUR record low? Do you have advice for a mom who's a little freaked out? Any idea what in the world is going on?
Or do we just chalk this up to the fun and exciting world of Type 1 Diabetes?
