Spouses, The Backup CGMs

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."

3:05 AM

Constance:  Beeeeeeeep!  "High.  Over 180 mg/dL." 

Trey:  "Holly . . ."

Holly:  Zzzzzzzzzzzz . . . zzzzzzzzzz . . .

Trey:  "Holleeey . . . " 

Holly:  Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz . . .

3:10 AM

Constance:  BEEEEEEEP!!!

Trey:  "HOLLY!"

Holly:  *annoyed*  "What?!" 

Trey:  "You're buzzing . . . " 

Holly:  "Huh?" 


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.  =) 


  1. This happened to me just the other night! Poor sleep-deprived husbands . . .

  2. 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.

  3. At least you're giggling during the process! I'm sure I do more of a grumble... haha

  4. This happens all the time in our house. :)
