Making medical ID bracelet bands

Posted on July 2, 2009 at 7:44am 0 Comments

Well, I've started something new that I thought I should probably share. I have been a jewelry making dabbler for a long time on and off, and I've started an etsy store to sell some of the cute ID bracelet bands (and other assorted things I like to make) that I've put together. I haven't had many hits so far, so I thought posting a link might let some folks who would be interested in such things see what I've been up to. Let me know if you have any suggestions or thoughts.…


Fed up with your federal government's support of health care policy/economic policy/etc.?

Here's something you can do: volunteer with whichever political campaign you think will do the most good in an upcoming election.

Yesterday evening the Mr. and I volunteered with the Obama campaign to canvass a neighborhood in our town; when we got too cold and it got too dark to see, we went back to the office and addressed, signed, and stuffed envelopes. It was both hard and easy. A lot of people were still at work, but we talked to a slew of folks about who they're voting for and… Continue

IOB, HypoManager, and calculating boluses

I've posted this around here quite a bit and I thought a blog post would help people find it more easily.

There is a ppt presentation and an html version - you should be able to view this fairly easily.

For those of you who do MySpace and Facebook...

... this is how I feel about it.

Although, somehow I'm all plugged in here...

So about that picture...

... it was taken on our honeymoon about a year ago. We went to London and saw LOTS of the sights. The first full day there we went to the Winston Churchill exhibit at the Imperial War Museum. My husband Josh's uncle has a friend who works there and we got to take a behind-the-glass tour and poke around. Here I am sitting in the chair at the desk in Winston Churchill's own private bunker. He made a few radio addresses from this desk though only very rarely slept in the bunk as he thought it was… Continue

Hi Sarah! August is a whacky month for most of us. Behind on bills because of both vehicals in the shop one time or the other. We're in one vehical for now which has no a/c. Spent 500 dollars on the light bill today, there goes some of our meds for me and my husband whose diabetic also. We'll have to wait till next week.

Good news is my business is picking up, I clean residential and make readys on the side. It's just me and hubby and daughter in law doing the work. Haven't really hired anyone because we need the money to come into the household and supporting my mother and my husband's father.

I really need to find some time to start writing my book. It seems the day goes by so fast and you wonder what did you do. LOL Anyways, hope you are doing great and maybe I can go with you to a convention or something thru the Tudiabetes. Cool, huh!

Hoorah!! Great news. Hopefully you will enjoy this proposal writing more :)

Progress here is really slow. I wanted to write the next chapter this "summer", but suddenly the summer is almost over and I'm still just reading. No writing yet-- SOON!! ;)

Best wishes on your 'new' adventure!

Hi, Sarah! How's things going?

Hey Sarah - that purple ultra mini would be awesome! Shoot me an e-mail at and I'll send you a check for shipping!!!!

Sounds interesting as well! I hope that you are able to find something doable that your supervisory team also supports! I know it's not easy...

My income data is from the Luxembourg Income Study.

I'm using household income survey (produced by official statistical offices in each country-- and standardized by international researchers) and different authors "data" on political party systems (placing political parties on different scales).

But my primary methodology is actually just comparative case studies (comparing 3 policy areas in 4 countries). There is less pressure to use statistical methods in Europe. Are you expecting to have numerical data for statistical analysis... or is the missing data rather just mean missing empirical evidence?

My brother went to Hope College... So I've been in Holland many times! Your project sounds interesting!! Hope that you are able to find a new direction there that can re-motivate you. Progress always come in plateaus, I think. But the time that you spend on the flat part is frustrating, but (I believe) necessary for making the next jump. I just spent a long time on a plateau!

Keep me posted!

Commiseration sounds great :)

Yes I sometimes read phdcomics, but I try to avoid it because I'm very prone to procrastination (if you need proof, check my TuDiabetes activity!!!)

What are you thinking of changing your topic to?

I'm writing about how political party systems influence redistributional effects of welfare states in CEE. I'm in my 3rd year and really hoping to finish in 1-2 years, but it is all a pipe dream for now!

Thanks a bunch I will check it out.

HI, have you ever noticed the way that IOB affects your control?
It's interesting that cozmo has a linear formula and animas is curvilenear. Curvilinear is supposed to be more like the bodies response. Thanks! I have noticed, from years of MDI, more difference in the way long term insulin is metabolized. Itll be intersting to get into more detail with the humalog.

Hi Sarah! Thanks for writing on my wall. I went to school for Electrical Engineering. My specialty has turned out to be wireless. I worked for one of the major US cellular companies for nearly ten years on the design and performance of their networks in New York and Philadelphia.
