A Trip to the Theatre

A trip to our local theatre was on the cards today, Benedict visited this place:

... to see this production:

It was a welcome respite for him since he was still suffering from multiple hypo's, another three yesterday, which is six in 36 hours and therefore an average of one every six hours.   Needless to say his concentration has been zippo.  To further complicate  matters, the cannula site became blocked in the middle of the night and he woke at five this morning with very high blood sugars and feeling sick.  In the end I had to give an emergency injection to bring his readings down.

We had a visit to the hospital today to change our insulin pump for the paradigm veo and whilst we were there he had a really bad hypo, the lowest I've seen him drop and the medical team were totally at a lost as to why it should be happening!  I've reset all the basal rates and am hoping that, things will settle over the course of the next few days.

As I write it is 7:30 pm and he is currently palying with the cuisenaire rods by the fire in the lounge.  He loves working out the problems in the accompanying work book and the added bonus (excusing the pun!) is he's exploring Mathematics at the same time.
