Life can be rough...

We've been battling a swing of blood sugars the last few days. The numbers will be normal. Then suddenly spike up to alarming levels requiring me to wake up every 3 hours for corrections. Then it'll go back to normal. Tonight has been high and I'm praying it'll drop down because I'm feeling so burned out. I know it's always going to be like this - but I can't help but wish that it would give us like a week's vacation. After 3 months don't we deserve at least that? Or at least some regularity? Unless chaos is the new regular.

On a different note I've discovered blogging is a useful threat. Jilly was being a wee bit naughty today. Doing something and not stopping when told to. I finally threatened her that if she didn't stop I was going to blog about what she was doing. That stopped her shenanigans fast!


  1. We're fighting the same rollercoaster over here. Ugh. I think that's the only way to describe this madness.

  2. Same here..rollercoaster stinks! That is funny about using blogging as a threat!

  3. Oh yes...we've been struggling too. It can be very hard at times. HUGS. Know that it does get easier...never easy but definitely easier.

  4. Those night times checks and the worry that comes with them are a terrible aspect of parenting a diabetic child. My husband usually does those because I can never get back to sleep.

    I just launched a new blog called D-Mom Blog, which I hope is a resource to other parents of diabetic children. I hope to develop relationships with more parents.

    (I've included you in my blogroll already.)
