-As much as I try to tell myself I don't care, and that it's NOT a reflection of how much work I put into taking care of my daughter, a good A1C for Elise puts a smile on my face. We just had her endo appointment last Thursday, and when the number popped up on the machine, I stole a glance and the grin automatically floated to my lips. Winning!
-It also pisses me off to think that it could be better if we didn't have to fight those post-change highs that we get with the pod. I've tried everything under the sun, and what works one time, won't work the next. I'm curious about when (if) we ever get the new smaller pods, if we'll be dealing with the same post-change highs.
-A good, working phone is a necessity when you have a child with diabetes. My phone just gave up the ghost. It was a fine phone; I could use it to call, send a text or two, but that was about it. Oh yeah, it was also a nifty calculator and alarm clock. But a few weeks ago it started acting all cray-cray on me. The clock would suddenly be an hour behind, then it would go back to normal. And the alarm for the middle-of-the-night check wouldn't go off. So I handed it to Fred and said, "FIX IT!" (but totally in a sweet way). Instead he came home with an I phone for me. Can I tell you a secret? I'm kinda in love with it.
-Going from two to three children has not been without challenges, but it's proving to be a pretty easy transition. Lucas made a crazy entrance into our world, but has turned out to be a wonderful little guy that has fit perfectly into our family. I remember being so scared to have another child after Elise was diagnosed, but I am so glad I never let that fear dictate my life. Otherwise, I wouldn't have this sweet face greeting me every day (and yeah, he's pretty much like this every day).
