    It was shortly before noon and my 6 year old told me that she felt low, so she grabbed her monitor and tested her blood sugar. She announced that her blood sugar was 33 so I panicked and grabbed a glucose tablet and juice box. After I juiced her up, I tested her again to see if her blood sugar had come up and the monitor now read "HI". I checked her previous reading and the monitor read "303". I guess in her little mind's eye it read 30 3.
