Feel like the worst m in the world right now! Let my husband take the kids to dinner and a movie, gave my 7 yr old her insulin... 3 hrs later it was at 'high' rechecked and it was at 541! Feel like crap! Didn't calculate her carbs that well! :(

But you checked and you caught it and you learned to do something different the next time she has that meal. It is okay.

It's happens for time to time... I have diabetes seen i was 4 years old and my parents also deal with that. It's ok to feel like this but take a deep breath and move on with the life!!! The most important thing it's your son ok!!! Now you learned another thing... Good luck

If you have a smartphone, download myfitnesspal and use it to make sure your count is correct. The database is incredible and will take the guess work out of counting carbs.

Don't feel bad as a type one mom we are not perfect as an et doctor once told me when my x miss calculated my sons insulin he had to be rushed to the hospital! This is a battle that dose not always comes with instructions and we are not so worried about a high blood sugar more about if your child is being monitored when it comes to key tones a high blood sugar is bad but low is deadly so what you made a mistake one time she fine and no harm done were not perfect! Were parents! Type one moms are super heros!
