Buzz, Buzz, Buzz, Buzzing

My eyes snap open out of a deep sleep.  My Dexcom is buzz, buzz, buzz, buzzing away.  It rattles in the glass coaster on my nightstand, which thankfully makes it louder.

I know the instant my eyes open that I'm low.  A quick finger stick confirms this.

A juice box and granola bar later, I'm on the way up.  But I double check before going back to sleep.

Today, I am especially thankful for my cgm.  Who knows if I would have woken up otherwise?

I hate lows during the night.


  1. Me too. And there's something so unfair about having a sliver of fear about sleep.

  2. Whole heartedly agree. I had a scary experience recently - had a seizure in my sleep when my husband was out of town. Now we're both anxious about me sleeping alone. The "what ifs" are absolutely horrible.

  3. thankful for them, too...and their loud alerts!
    there are times I know beyond a shadow of a doubt I wouldn't have known about some of Bean's middle of the night lows without them!

  4. Father took care of your middle-of-the-night lows numerous times as a teenager. That was even before yoyr pump. I'm very grateful for your cgm - but even more grateful that He holds you in the palm of His hand...

  5. So very thankful for everything your mom said... and also the HypoRepeat alarm :D
