So my hubby and I decide to take afew days away right??? The 1st night my pump becomes detached from me. I wake up at 3 in the morning with a 511 bs. So I think I got it together and the next night I fall to a 21 and my hubby was gone so it was all up to me to do this right??? My vision was so blured and well I was sweating beyond beleive and life just wasn't going my way ok???? I slowly make it over to the frige in our room and get the gluagon kit (now that was an adventure in itself)…


Thank You For All the B-day Greetings!!!!!
