Dear Stupid Diabetes...

Dear Stupid Diabetes,

Thank you for keeping me up last night, because after 3 days of insomnia the last thing I would possibly want is to sleep. And it's not like I can take anything for the insomnia anyway out of fear of sleeping too soundly and not being there if needed.

Thank you for last night's unexpected high blood sugar that left us all scratching our heads and wondering where that came from. From a fluke? From the new BBQ sauce? Maybe aliens caused it.

Thank you for the moderate ketones and having to wake Bean up at night for a pee check. It's so easy to drag a half sleeping 9 year old up the stairs and to the bathroom. And there's nothing more fun than dipping things in pee in the middle of the night.

Our next house will have to have a master bathroom. Not because it's cool and stylish but to simplify things. And a larger kitchen. We really need a larger kitchen to hold all the diabetes supplies. Thank you for showing us that.

Yours truely,

A T1D Mom

Still around - just been busy.

Life doesn't slow down with D. Heck, life doesn't slow down for anything. We've been super busy the last month. We had lovely company over, visited an island, and later took a day trip up to Canada. We've had sickness, and asthma attacks from hiding under the bed during a play date. I'm working on a pod arm cover that is more comfortable and stylish than those sport bands, and we've done a bit of house purging. The spring weather has been delightfully chaotic with sunny rainshowers. Overall things have been good.

So busy that I've fallen behind on blogging.
