I'm quite the heavy sleeper, so I don't always here Constance going off in the middle of the night. Thank goodness I have Trey, because he is usually my alarm when Constance is beeping. For example . . .
3:00 AM, our bedroom
Constance: Buzzzzzzz! "High. Over 180 mg/dL."
Constance: Beeeeeeeep! "High. Over 180 mg/dL."
Trey: "Holly . . ."
Holly: Zzzzzzzzzzzz . . . zzzzzzzzzz . . .
Trey: "Holleeey . . . "
Holly: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . .
Holly: *annoyed* "What?!"
Trey: "You're buzzing . . . "
Constance: BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP Freakin' BEEEEEEEEEEP!
Trey: "You're buuuuuuuzzzzzzzing . . . "
Holly: "Oh . . . ok . . . "
Then I toddle off to the bathroom to test. 195 mg/dL. Dial up a correction bolus. Head back to bed.
Trey: "Everything OK?"
Holly: "Uh huh, just needed a slight correction. Thanks for waking me up."
Trey: " . . . don't mention it . . ." *rolls back over*
I bet he's glad I've got my nighttime basals in check now. I've been solidly waking up around 120 mg/dL for the past few weeks. It took a lot of sacrifice (by Trey) to get there. =)
Watch me lose weight!

This happened to me just the other night! Poor sleep-deprived husbands . . .ReplyDelete
Ha! Oh, this post brings me joy. This happens all the time in our house, too, with one notable exception - I apparently often wake up, say "Shhhhh!", giggle, and then go back to sleep.ReplyDelete
At least you're giggling during the process! I'm sure I do more of a grumble... hahaReplyDelete
