“You should probably check before you go to bed.” It was late and every second before climbing under the covers felt like an eternity but it seemed smart to head off any problems before we slept.
It makes sense, really. Who better to keep track of the carb intake than the person putting the food in her mouth? Who better to dose the insulin than the person watching the Dexcom graph while she dances around the basement to Christmas music? Reaching the point where we're both comfortable with her managing her diabetes in these types of situations is a huge plus for both of us. Especially if she does so as successfully as she did the other night. It was impressive.
I'll have to remember to tell her so.
