I finally got around to organizing all of my diabetes supplies today. I discovered that...
I own a life-time supply of lancets (3 sandwich baggies and around 10 boxes)
I have 8 meters (4 UltraMini--green, pink, 2 silver--, UltraSmart, Ultra2, and 2 BD Link--purple, black) I haven't opened the Ultra2 meter yet. I don't even know why I have that one but I think it was a free upgrade.
We're almost out of IV Prep.

So I'm glad that I got all of this organization out of the way so that my mom can stop complaining about it every 3 days when I change out my pump site! :-P

I guess it's only a matter of time before things get messy again...

ladies...mother's NEVER stop worrying. i know i am one. i even carry a card saying so. lol !!! it's our nature to worry. if we didn't, you wouldn't love us as much. at least we like to think that way. my mother is 83 and she is in poor health, but she still worries about me. now that i'm older and a mom (of many years), i can appreciate her concern. still drive me nuts? yes. but i wouldn't want it any other way. really this isn't a lecture, just my observation.
