Diabetes Month Photo a Day - Future

I had a hard time with today's prompt.  What does a picture of the future look like?  Then the other night happened:

Look at all that red.  Try as we might, we could not keep Elise above 100.  We gave her over 40g uncovered, and turned off her pump for hours; you can see the results.

Fred and I barely slept that night. I lost count of how many finger pokes we did.  If it wasn't for the dexcom, this could have been a very bad situation.  Very bad.  

Until a cure is found, devices like the dexcom that help keep our CWD and PWD safe are the future.  

And I am so very thankful for that.

November was National Diabetes Month and American Diabetes Month.  Thank you to Kerri for coming up with the Diabetes Month Photo a Day Project to document life with type 1.


  1. What a scary night for you all. So glad you had Dex to help keep Miss Elise safe. xoxo

  2. Hi. That's scary. I have a question. I'm a new T1D mom. How does that happen? And if you disconnected the pump did it still happen. My child is starting the pump Monday. She has only been diagnosed since September. Very scary

    1. Please don't let that picture scare you... What happened was a total fluke and can be explained (I have a post coming up about it). Pumping has been wonderful for us, and I hope it is just as amazing for you and your child.
