Life with Diabetes

An entire shelf in our kitchen is now dedicated to supplies--lancets, alcohol pads, syringes, books, meters, you name it....

Life has changed a bit for us around here....but not too much. Eating a meal, or eating anything for that matter, involves a little bit more time and MATH! We have gotten really good at our 12 times tables recently (his insulin to carb ratio is 1 unit insulin for every 12 carbs).

I spent a lot more time at the pharmacy.

There is a lot more worry when I go down to wake Indy up in the morning. There is always that lingering fear that his blood sugar has gone really low in the night and he is not going to wake up. What an awful feeling.

But overall Indy has done great. He basically takes care of everything himself and is really good at it. I'm very proud of how he has handled this change in his lifestyle.

Ski Day

Emerson, Paige and Reagan had a ski day last week. The snow wasn't the greatest but that never stops these girls from having fun!

Last one in braces!

Emerson finally got her top braces on yesterday. She is going to be sore for a few days I'm sure! But it will all be worth it when all those crooked teeth are nice and straight.
