-I don't think I will ever be okay with how diabetes stole part of Elise's childhood. The other day I had the TV on and a commercial for Pillsbury cinnamon rolls came on. When Elise saw the cinnamon rolls, she turned to me and asked, "what are those?" When I told her, she asked, "are they good?" My almost 3 1/2 year old doesn't know what a cinnamon roll is. She doesn't even know if they're good. And that makes me sad. It's not that she'll never be able to have one. There are just certain foods I don't want to do battle with at this stage of her life.
-Even after 2 1/2 years, I still do battle with little glimmers of hope that she has magically been cured. The other day, her BG went almost 9 hours steady around 100. This was after breakfast, morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack; there was absolutely NO spike. Then right before dinner she started to creep up. Those 9 hours made me very happy.
-Diabetes has screwed up my sleep cycle something fierce. Even though I am exhausted, I can't go to sleep without the help of my friend Tylenol PM. If I don't take something, I lie in bed for hours, unable to fall asleep. I don't know why. I don't know what changed. All I know is I'm exhausted and I HATE having to take something to help me sleep. Does anybody else have trouble sleeping?
Happy New Year everyone... here's to a great 2011!
