I haven't posted in forever

Life goes on, middle school comes and goes, weather comes and goes...

We are using an Omnipod pump now, not sure if we like it.  I like some aspects and others I don't.  the pods are chunky, you have little control over them.  Her blood sugars seem better but that could be the fact that the freestyle meter reads lower than the One Touch, or the fact that it's summer.

I'm so proud of all the things she's been doing, reading tons of big books this summer (A Tree Grows in Brooklyn), doing small chores, getting almost straight A's.  I want her to be more proactive when she feels a low and stuff, but I don't mind helping her with all this.  It's too much for a kid to do themself.

We go on vacation next week and I'm paranoid about her not getting sick before then.  We dealt with more bad bronchitis this year and now I'm attacking the nasal stuff with Nasocort and double allergy shots and maybe that will help when school starts.  Asthma is worse than diabetes sometimes.  I'd love to home school but she needs to get out of the house.

Because every girl needs chocolate, even diabetic ones.

Life comes and goes.   My BFF's mom passed away last night.  She was a crazy, fun woman.  RIP Patti!!!

  2. My mom talks to me about being responsible and stuff too. A lot of times I try really hard, but other times really need help and reminders. but it does always turn out fine in the end.
