I have just been accused, apparently, of not calling for an ambulance quickly enough.
On Sunday evening my Type 1 partner cooked and served dinner and then couldn't eat or test his blood sugar. We have been together in excess of 30 years and I usually manage to bring him round. As soon as he sat down he went into a hypo and I thought I could bring him round but within about half an hour he received a phone call and was incoherent. It turned out to be his daughter (also diabetic) and she ended the call at 09.40. Then her older sister (also diabetic) rang on the landline and said her sister had called for an ambulance! They are not used to him being the way he was over the phone. I said I was dealing with it and would call an ambulance if necessary, which I actually did ten minutes later as he was becoming very disruptive and not accepting help. Paramedics arrived within half an hour. His blood sugar wouldn't come up until they injected him and he had lots of chocolate and toast etc but he avoided having to go to hospital. He's fine now and the outcome is that he is, like his daughters, getting a pump fitted on Friday.
I am mortified that three people are pointing the finger at me for apparently doing nothing. I am very upset. Things have been bad enough lately.
