The holidays - they overtook me!
I'll be back in the next few days!
|Look - here's us following the darn directions!|
And waiting 5 minutes for the test to end.
|The code that says 'not enough blood.'|
|Walmart ad booklet|
|Good to know Walmart has Humalin for $24.88!!!|
Glucose tabs - $1.23 - Grace chose the watermelon and fruit punch flavors
|$22.48 for two A1C test kits in one package|
|Ahhhh, the elusive 6.3. One can hope, right?!|
|Lots of packaging. Codes much match. Do not open until ready to use.|
|Each kit has two cartridges that are inserted into the black base.|
Then each has a blood collector and 'shaker' that is pressed into the front of the base.
|First you take the blood sample and insert it into the blood collector.|
Shake it and snap on the cap and then stand it upright.
|Then you connect the cartridge to the base, wait for the prompts and remove the cap|
off the blood collector. Then you press the tip of the blood collector into the front.
5 minutes later, voila! An A1C!
|Haley and Grace|
|Our first CDE at our endo's practice!|
|Our endo, the fabulous Dr. B. showed up too!!!|
|Our OmniPod rep!|
|The kids say the floating white dots are 'orbs' - like The Sixth Sense.|
I say my camera lens is dirty.
Cause if they are orbs, that FREAKS ME OUT.
And that means there are a LOT of dead people at our farm.
|Hayride! On a huge wagon, in the pitch black night.|
We took a ride to 'Witch's House.'
|There it is - Witch's House!|
She's a friendly witch who gives out cookies and tells jokes.
Cause if it had been a SCARY witch, Mama would not have been on the ride!!!!
|The Witch herself!|
She gave out giant sugar cookies. I grasped at 35g carbs for it.
We ended the night at 89.
High five me!
|The night ended with a bonfire, roasting marshmallows and apple cider.|
SWAGged a 6g on each marshmallow and a 15g for a 6 oz cup of cider.
|This should look familiar, doing it all one-handed.|
And bolusing while she runs and grabs another marshmallow.
I'm surprised I can't juggle.
"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?"
~Mary OliverOne go round on this sweet planet. One chance to raise these kids. One chance to do this diabetes right. One chance to go here, do this, do that. Spend it in despair or glory, time is gonna pass anyway. Choose joy and happiness each time. Choose to do something glorious with your life. When times get tough, I think of the choices I have and it always comes back to the choice to be happy.
