495. My blood sugar was 495. One site-change and shot later, it's 392. Taking wayyyyy too long to drop. The thing is, last night I was 401 (and it was time to change out then), and I was randomly high earlier today. Que pasa? I don't usually freak out at high blood sugars -- especially when I know the source (as with the air bubble, or the major gorging on cookie dough). But this is ridiculous. And I've been really good about exercising, and about exercising to get my blood sugars down when appropriate.
I suspect a mix of things...pump, food choices...stress. Usually stress is the kicker, and I had a very full day today, watched a friend defend her dissertation (she passed with high distinction!) and I am leaving town tomorrow only to come back Saturday and turn around to leave again on Sunday. So, being supportive friend, cleaning the house, packing, errand-running = stress. As does not working on the dissertation.
Hopefully, when I check in next week (when I will have wild stories about the wilds of my parent's new place in South Dakota and a road trip to VA) I will be able to report beautiful blood sugars. Wish me luck!
