Default Flu?!?!?!?

I was a good diabetic, got my flu shot, last month. Apparently they MISSED this strain!

My BG was 210, yesterday. 259 by last night, and this morning. Our thermometer has a funky display screen, so I have no idea how high my temperature is, but I slept from 3 pm to 5 am ... and have the crawling skin and chills heralding a fever. And a DRY cough, no nasal involvement.

CRAP! I hope no one else gets it ...

Dang it all - I saw your FB post before I got here . . . this is not good news, Linda! Get as much rest as you can - a few more 14-hour sleeps would be good. Push fluids . . .

Doesn't it p..s you off when you think you've got yourself covered and some other nasty little bug creeps in!

Hope it's a fairly time limited strain and that you're feeling well soon.

Sorry to hear about the flu foxl. I may be tempting fate by not getting a shot this year.

OWC got his shot last week, but I haven't had one . . . maybe I'll let it go this year.

Aw Linda, so sorry to hear that you are sick. This is exactly why I don't get flu shots.

I myself had some kind of tummy bug today. I woke up this morning with a terribly crampy belly and back and forth to the restroom several times. I stayed home from work and just laid on the couch all day sleeping on and off. By evening, I felt better, tummy feels much better and no more bathroom trots. So, aside from a headache which I think is weather related, I hope tomorrow is much better.

Get plenty of rest and fluids, and I know what it is like when bg's go hanky. I was high this morning (211), but the rest of the day it was below 140, so I'll take it.

STILL > 200 this morning; upped the Levemir plus 4U Novolog in hopes of correcting. And now my little athlete has got it, too ...
