It was 4:15 a.m.


I could hear Jack's whisper.

"Mom, wake up."

I opened my eyes.

"I feel low."

"Okay, well let's test you."

Jack was 48.

A few hours later, as he was getting ready for school, I asked Jack whether the low woke him up.

"No, Max woke me up. Max couldn't sleep, and he wanted me to go into the playroom to play with him."

I keep wondering what would have happened if Max hadn't woken up? 4 a.m. falls between our usual sugar checks.

And why did Max wake up? Max *never* wakes up *that* early. Divine intervention?

Maybe Max could "sense" something was up with his brother. Maybe he could smell the low. Who knows. I am SO glad Max did wake up and Jack is ok! How scary!

Joshua got up the other night for a "bad dream" so I tested Isabel's BG and caught a low. He NEVER wakes up in the night! Angels. I firmly believe in them. Thank goodness (thank the angels) that Jack is OK :)
