Another Mom episode!

My brother called me tonight and told me he found Mom passed out again. When she didn't show up for church tonight, he went to see about her. He found her in a dark house lying on her bed out of it. He woke her up and her blood sugar was 36! She had fallen asleep at some point without eating any food since lunch. I was there at lunch and watched her eat, so I know she ate at lunch. I don't know what we are going to do. I guess we are going to have to monitor everything she eats to make sure she does eat. I went on to her house to check on her and they had gotten her blood sugar back up and she was in bed. I'm just so afraid that at some point she is going to do that and NOT wake up. Thank you, God, for always alerting us in some way to go see about her!

I am worried about your Mom. Does she just not want to eat? I will be praying for her!

I wish I didn't want to eat!!!!

Linda, she is just not hungry and so she forgets that she must eat while on insulin. I asked her doc about switching her back to oral meds, but he said they mess with your kidneys and heart too much and she is not a candidate to switch back. She has been on insulin for years. We are just going to monitor her more carefully and make sure she eats.
