Oh cool! Where do you go to college? ....Are you a duck?!

I'm a junior at the University of Mary for nursing. Hoping to eventually become a Nurse Practitioner and get my CDE :)

What are you majoring in?

I think you should do it! It's not that far of a drive its fun, free, and you can pick how long you want. You sleep there and have your own cabin with the other volunteers. You basically help with blood sugar testings and bring the kids snacks when they need, and lots of other stuff. We had enough free time though to go kayaking and hiking and to hang out with the kids. I loved it! Its a little hectic at times though. Haha one volunteer was on duty for overnight checks (midnight checks if they are lower than 100 at bedtime) and he read the meter as 28 (its in a dark cabin!) and gave the kid some ensure and then realized he was reading it at the wrong angle and they were 128! OH NO! Lol it was all good though, they fixed with just a little insulin :)

I LOVE the OmniPod. SERIOUSLY. It's the best thing that ever happened to me. I forget its even on me, seriously. It's like people ask me (what is that?) And I go...what? OH YEAH. Because I just wear it on the back of my arms. Did you even or would you ever consider getting the OmniPod?

I just got the Dexcom Seven Plus yesterday too and I like it so far, although I put the sensor on my tummy and it was just not workin' out. I don't like things on my belly, they get sore easily. Next time I'm gonna have to put it on my hip (where you put your site for you pump in your last video) and the back of my arm. Its great otherwise!

BTW- I'm gonna have to do some video responses! I just made a video about my new dexcom and I loved it! I just have to get a nicer webcam with a microphone and I will be set!

Hey Danica! Just noticed you were a part of the Pacific Northwest Diabetics group. Where do you live? I live there (usually) but I'm in the midwest for college right now. I love to talk and meet up with other diabetics, especially around my age...I volunteered at Camp Sealth which integrates Diabetic kids for one week over the summer, if you live in the Seattle area, you should consider doing it next summer! Talk to you soon!
