How do sets fail? Let me count the ways.

How do sets fail? Let me count the ways.
They fail in the depth of night
when blood sugar shoots out of sight –
or there’s a marked delay
when the bolus hits later in the day.
They go with a whimper
and blood sugar drifts up
up – or a bang
and ketones have you peeing in a cup.
Till a new set is in
and blood sugar decreases.
We’re all smiles –
till the next set ceases.

  3. ugh. 😦 poetic, but UGH.

    we just bought a blood ketone meter, L prefers it so much more. i recently saw something online about there being a giveaway, or rebate program? i can’t find it right now, but i’ll let you know if i come across it again. i didn’t make more of a note of it since we had just gotten one.
