Hi Kate's Mom,
December 26th will mark our 4th year dealing with this. How are you doing by now, now that you have 1 year under your belt? I guess we can say we are "pros", but I find diabetes to be very unpredictable, and at times, very scary. We have had some close calls a few times, but every time, God has pulled us through it. My prayer for you is that you, too can trust His strength when you feel you cant go on.
Please let me know how you like the Sentry. It's a hefty price but must be well worth it. Last night Mary's alarm was going off and I didn't hear it until hours later. (Her room is upstairs from ours), sure would like to get it. We are considering it.
Blessings to you!
