Are there days we can't beat it and no matter what equation or carb ratio we use, we just cannot get her numbers right? Yes
Could we not make it without these? No, "circle snacks" treat many lows around here.
|She will eat them during her sleep... Can you say, AWESOME?!|
Do we worry 24/7 and check her 10 to 12 times per day? Yes and will continue to do so, especially after the sad news I read yesterday about a 14 year old with diabetes.
Are we tired? Yes, super tired.
But, our sweet Lydia's life was saved last September 21st and we are forever thankful for that! She was sick and now she is better.
We have the tools to manage this disease and we are giving it our all.
We would hand it back over in a heartbeat, if we could, but we would also pick it over some others, for sure!
So, we are celebrating today! Here's to you, Lydia and all your extra sugar!
|And Dantz gets to join the celebration because as Lydia says, "Dantz is a pretend diabetic"|
