"Oh...I remember well the Adoption Saga....we adopted our children in 1984 and 1986....Of course, the red tape for our first child (now 25) started 4 years prior to actually holding her. Yes, they will likely have a cut off age to adopt an…"

Life Before Diagnosis

Posted on October 7, 2008 at 4:55am 0 Comments

Everyone else seems to have a diagnosis story posted and I do not seem to share mine with anyone... so here it is.

It's amazing that I have any recollection of life before diagnosis considering it was over 17 years ago! Lots of pricks, pokes, various pumps, stupid mistakes and ah-ha moments have landed me where I am today.

My mom is planning to move so she has been clearing out the attic. She calls me a few times a day to see if I want something that she saved from my… Continue

A Stale Cracker Kind of Day

Posted on September 26, 2008 at 7:17am 0 Comments

Yesterday was a stale cracker kind of day. I had a hard time most of the day keeping my blood sugar up. hmm... Anyway, I went running in the AM as usual. I had some juice when I got home and then got ready for work. At work, I treated lows twice before leaving to go to my neuro appointment. After I checked in, I sat to read the not-so-recent Newsweek. I tested, treated another almost-low with a mini pack of skittles, suspended my pump, checked the time and went back to reading. Some lady who… Continue

My husband and I are in the beginning process of adoption. It's very... weird and uncomfortable. To go through an agency, a representative came out to our house, took pictures, met our pets... They took down our total history of our lives... where we were born, went to school, where we've lived, happiest/saddest moments....... Our initial interview took about 4 hours. They create a book with all of our info and birth parents wanting to give their babies up for adoption will have the opportunity… Continue

A few weeks ago, my friend, Chris, dutifully named my pump "Gizmo." Where the name comes from, I don't really know. But, poor Gizmo did not previously have a name, so it has stuck. I told him I would one day blog about the naming adventure... so now I have. =o)

Anyway, Gizmo and I had a rough time last night/this morning.

I went to a birthday party yesterday evening. We ate pizza, jumped in the pool for an hour or so, ate cake and ice cream... a typical birthday party. My… Continue

My newest A1c. Yay!

I went in for my test as scheduled in July and kept putting off going back in for the results. Although, not because I feared the results... I just didn't have time and the new endo refused to tell me the results over the phone or to mail the results to me. Whatever...

So, I went in Friday, paid my $30 copay so I could stay for 10 minutes to get my results. I am happy with 6.8. It's definitely better than my previous 8.2! It's been a long time since… Continue

I am still using them. I prefer my thighs over anywhere else. In fact my next shipment I am only getting on box of quick sets as I rarely use my stomach.

Thanks. So far I like them. It is nice to be able to use my thighs instead of my stomach and butt all the time.

Chica!!!! How are you??
Sara graduates today from Belton HS...magna cum laude! ...but on the other hand, last A1C was 13.4. I told her if she doesn't start taking control, then she can't go off to college. She can stay home with me! she will want to do that! Constant struggle for control. But all is well, still working on the diss.
Got some more research done and published...moving along.
Stay in touch!
