Without using a stainless steel cannula it was presumed inevitable. No time was wasted in getting to it.
We've been chasing highs for the last 36 hours (high teens - low 20s, 320-414). Yesterday Jonathan seemed to have a slight fever (warmer than usual forehead) at lunch but was otherwise himself and wanted to stay at school, but when he got home his temperature was normal, as well as this morning. The working theory yesterday was a bug. Bobbie is still fighting something off and I just got rid of a sore throat and cough myself.
This morning I got a call from Latchkey - BG: 28 (504). He was completely non-symptomatic and very much himself. I had them bolus and still give him his snack and headed over to get him.
His next set change was supposed to be tomorrow evening. Since there was no fever today and his numbers were still high we decided it could be a site issue.... Sure enough...
A new set is in and he's going to test hourly for the rest of the day. The remarkable thing is he was almost completely asymptomatic. I now have another mindset change from MDI and another lesson learned.
