Nick’s blood sugar is quite low. I woke him up and made him drink juice, which thankfully he did without complaint. Now the worrisome 15 minutes until I can check him again. And if his number is in the “good” zone (100 or more), he needs to eat a piece of toast or similar snack. If he’s still low, it’s treat with juice again and wait. If he’s still under 100 after that – or if his blood sugar continues to drop instead of rise – it will be considered an emergency.

My eyes are tired and my heart hurts.
