It’s Tuesday and we are off to a good start this morning. We think we have solved the mystery of the blood sugar problem. Paul prayed Sunday night that whatever was wrong would be corrected quickly and that Katy would get the rest she needed. His prayer may have been answered early Monday morning. Katy’s TPN pump sounded an alarm and gave me a “malfunction” message. I was unable to successfully restart the pump and called the Pharmacy. It took 7 hours to get a new pump delivered and running so Katy was able to be free of her tubing and TPN backpack which she stated, “was a birthday bonus.”
Since reconnecting to a new pump, I have not had to give her a single insulin injection! If I’m right, the problem was the TPN pump not giving her the proper amount of nutrition, throwing her sugar levels off. The small pump is a computer, and as we all know, the technology is terrific when it’s running right.
We had several short and sweet visits from friends yesterday. Katy was so happy. As Ryan Kirkwood wrote on her blog, inspite of all the hard stuff of late, she was here to enjoy her day. When she can have a celebration with cake she has requested “Death by Chocolate” from The Wildflour, a local bakery. What a girl!Comments:
