As I rolled out of bed this morning, I grabbed Dexi for a peek.
Turns out the signal had been lost for about half an hour, which happens from time to time. It's usually not longer than that, and usually not a big deal. Per the graph, blood sugars had been been skirting the 80 line for an hour or two before communication was lost.
|I wonder if this is physiologically possible?|
I was relieved to easily wake her with a gentle rub on the back and a 'good morning.'
Meter in hand, I wasted no time checking her blood as she began to rouse herself.
Good news, if a bit unexpected.
I fed Dexi the number and followed up with another as she requested (which was close to the first) .
As my daughter put her toast in the toaster, a mere 10 minutes later, more alarms: bzzzt, bzzzt.
Impossible, I decided. Clearly, Dexi's in some sort of panic mode at this point and making wild guesses.
"Just let her settle down," I advised. My daughter actually gave the Dexcom a little pat and told it not to freak out.
By the time we'd finished breakfast, Dexi was reading in the low 100's and her imaginary crisis was over.
