My journey raising a diabetic child and his two siblings...

So I LOVE breakfast...pretty much all of it. Waffles, eggs, french toast, oatmeal, cereal, pancakes, bacon, sausage, bagels, muffins, you get the point. So the idea of brinner (breakfast for dinner) always makes me happy. Tonight we had pancakes. Yes, pancakes, full of quick acting carbs. So even though we don't use syrup but whipped cream instead, it still adds up to be about 90g for all that Bryce eats (best guestimate of course) We have the I:C ratio figured out...for morning. And boy it sure didn't relate to night time pancake consumption. Instead of a quick raise like we get in the morning, Bryce's bgs kept dropping and dropping. Juice box, cookie, couple handfuls of raisins...and turned off his basal! We eventually got him to 145. Still a lot IOB (insulin on board-the amount theoretically still working) Been holding steady there for a while. Oh, but Dex just called...348!
