hi doris :) that little photo of the babies is precious! i have 2 granddaughters and will have a 3rd (another girl) late april. i have one daughter, so they are all terribly spoiled! i'm o my own little crusade this past month to get my numbers down, finally now in the 4th week i see a little change. it's very difficult, i was a pastry chef for 30 years, go figure! i have the paradigm pump but it's a pain at times. hope you are having a good day and take care!
Thanks for your reply. I certainly can relate- it could be worse. God love your daughter for having 3 kids, and D- I think the D part is easier!! I have let my son know of some Teen D sites and hope we would check them out, so he can vent and also see he really is not alone. I know in his world he feels very alone. Lately it has just gotten the best of both of us. He went on lantus Monday, and will use his pump to cover meals and corrections... So I hope this change will bring back his happiness, or atleast decrease his anger and frustation, as well as get his numbers back down. So thank you again for being here.....
we got a little snow here, and I hope it doesn't keep my honey's plane from coming in late. I got most of my errands done yesterday. did you see the show on the Today Show about the dangers of staph and e-coli germs in children's bath toys?
hey sweetie, I am doing good. The good news, I lost 4 lbs this week, the bad new I can't seem to get my BG down like it should be. It was 145 (fasting) yesterday, and 135 (fasting )this morning. I guess it's time to go see doctor. ok so enough of complaining....We are waiting on our first grandchild to be born the first week of April! We all are excited about that! Other than being stressed over my BG's I have a blessed life........... How are u?
well it took me all day to get below 200, and you know how crappy those highs make you feel. It was so nice though to be sewing all day with my friends. I was putting some very small triangles together, and everybody clapped when I said I made the first row (after 4 hours!). sometimes I like to do that kind of sewing, because you have to be particular if you want to get it right, so it drowns out other thoughts in your head. gosh, you go from one crisis to the next with your brood. hope things clear up soon.
hi Doris, I'm supposed to be going to a class all day today. I had such a rough night with little sleep, and my bgs aren't all that hot. I guess I'll drag myself over there. at least my friend Carol will be there - she's type 2 and a RN nurse. so carry on without me! we have a nice new member who's going to help us welcome named catlover - give her a holler pls.
Thanks for the wonderful welcome. My son was dx at 7 (he is 14 now) The struggles of a teenager have really begun this last year-with most of the rebelling towards..guess what yes his diabetes. Hence my name wiped out-I can certainly understand his level of frustration and just being so tired of all of it, and most days all we do is fight. After reading some of the posts, although I am not happy others are going through this, I felt a bit better knowing I am not alone.
And I thought it is us females who would talk to high heavens! I guess you guys are an exemption huh...

Well...sounds like my kind of guy to call on during power and internet failure...LOL
The utility people here is so difficult to talk with. Downright idiot sometimes. My husband gets his way too, since they dont want to talk with him ever again..they cannot speak much English! So they end up staring at him and saying...yes sir! We will fix it sir! I cant speak English sir! hahaha!
