The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
You nailed it!
He also has been able to feel when it is getting low and catch it before it gets too low. For the past three weeks, he has been feeling tired and run down so he doesn't feel it as much. I am hoping that the tiredness was just a sinus infection he didn't know he had until it got bad enough that it made itself known in other ways and that he feels better after a round of antibiotics. When he starts falling he goes really fast. Sometimes less than 5 minutes from too high to too low, especially in the heat when he is moving a lot or using muscles. Seeing the colors should have been a red flag but that has never been a symptom of low blood sugar before for him and he thought it was part of the sinus infection or the meds. This is one reason that our daughter works with him and lives with us when she could go elsewhere and make more money and live in her own house that someone is renting right now. He needs a companion. She has been hypoglycemic since her teens and recognizes the symptoms even before he or I do. We don't want him to know it, but she and I both know that if he doesn't have a 'companion' with him all the time he will be dead from a low blood sugar event. For a while I wasn't able to be that person and I think we have all kinda gotten used to it the way it is now.
