What struck me about this incident was how unprepared I felt for it. My instinct, when I didn't know what that ketone reading meant, was to time travel back 11 years and dig out the booklet our children's hospital gave us when she was diagnosed. The chart was right where I pictured it, accompanied by lots of helpful advice which helped me deal with the problem. Yet questions remain.
Should I be relying on 11 year old information or are there newer protocols? Would it be worthwhile to review sick day plans at our next endo appointment? Should plans for various emergencies be reviewed every couple of years as a rule?
Hopefully it will be another few years before I need this information again, but I don't plan to wait that long to refresh my memory.
