Me and my kids were at my friends house across the street. When we got done talking I came home and let my kids stay to play with her kids. I figured I would unload and load my dishwasher and get dinner started then go get the kids. Right when I get done loading the dishwasher I get a call. She tells me she caught my older two kids checking my youngest blood sugar. My kids are 7, 5, and 4. My ds4 has a fanny pack that holds his meter and insulin pump. I rush over there to find out my kids gave him twice as much insulin then he was suppose to get. I also learned that they know how to unlock the pump. I had his nurse on the phone so fast, she had to calm me down. Right now I am doing what she told me to do and so far everything is fine. I am monitoring his blood sugar and he is eating. this is the first time this has ever happened and I am going to make sure my kids (all three of them) know that only an adult is allowed to do that and how dangerous this is. I am still shaking
this happened around 6pm. In 20 mins he went from 523 to 167. I have checked him four time since he has not gone under 114 and right now is at 157. After his quick drop I let him eat a banana and some top ramen. He was 114 after eating that was when I reconnected his pump. I think I will be scheduling an app. With his specialist to see if he can help me educate my older kids better and help them to understand the severity of all of this.
