Hypoglycemia

Well, we are having more issues with low blood sugars in our little man. Apparently, that is why he has really long periods of being extremely fussy and inconsolable. I am grateful for that!! Now, the question is what do we do about it.

The new medication he is on for his heart rhythm issues does have a tendency to lower blood sugar. However, it seems to be the general consensus that the low blood sugar is probably not related to the the meds. My guess is that they will put him on a new mediation to help regulate his blood sugar. We will just have to see what they decide.

The best news is all this decision making can be done out of the icu!! As long as they decide to keep him on his current mediation for his heart rhythm, we will most likely go to the floor today. :)

  1. Oh boy. Just when you feel like the arrythmias are under control, now his blood sugar is out of whack. I hope you made it back to the floor today and that his poor little heels are ok after so many pricks. I hope that they can get to the bottom of what is causing his low blood sugars quickly! We feel so much love for him and for your whole family.

Joshua Kent Ipson was born December 1, 2012 with a very complicated combination of congenital heart defects. After 2 1/2 months of fighting for his life, he passed away on February 13, 2013. We invite you to share our experiences as we grieve his loss, rejoice in God's plan, & keep Joshua's message of hope alive.
