Check! Get up and check your blood glucose.

But I'm so comfy here under the covers.

You're soaring! You know you are.  And now 8 hours in bed. You want THAT on youAngelndevil_2r A1c?

But I was low! I was at 72 last time I checked.

Yes, but that was 2 hours ago, and you ate all that chocolate. You think that stuff 's just gonna 'absorb'?

Bugger off.

Six chocolate kisses and a Kitkat is NOT a nibble.  Get up and check!  You can't sleep now anyway.

Blast it.  I'm going...  188!  Happy now?

Yeah, we caught it.  Aggressive corrective dose.  There.  Good girl.

Uh-huh, put all the crap away, and ooh, ice-cold feet now.  Damn you. 

OK, back to bed -- ahhh.

(Long pause...)

You still up?


How do we know it wasn't too much insulin? What if we go too low?  Does he really know what to do?

Ah geez.  Bugger off, I said.

We should check. 


Get up and check!  You can't sleep now anyway...
