Kay had a follow-up appointment with her pediatrician on Tuesday. They were sympathetic about Kay’s diagnosis and emphasized that this would be a significant learning experience for all of us. I couldn’t agree more! There was no additional news from the pediatrician regarding next steps, as we are scheduled to see Kay’s endocrinologist on Thursday.


Before Kay’s appointment, we stopped by GiGi’s Playhouse to visit our friend briefly. I love that we can just drop by anytime, even if it’s just to say hello.


After Kay’s appointment, we got lunch and headed home to relax for the rest of the afternoon and evening. I can tell when Kay’s glucose levels start to rise because her mood changes. It must make her feel unwell, which explains why she is so unhappy during those times. My heart aches for Kay, and I wish I could take this burden from her.


Our second night home from the hospital was like the first. I still set my alarm for 3:00 AM to check on Kay, and I’m so glad I did. Her glucose level was 70. Levels below 70 or above 300 can be dangerous! With her glucose dropping so low, she needed sugar. We went to the kitchen, and I gave her some apple juice, which helped bring her levels up. I checked her glucose again about 30 minutes later, and it had started to rise to a safer level. We then went back to bed to get a few more hours of sleep.
