A1C Hell

So my kids are back from Hawaii and they started school. WooHoo Endo appt was a bit disappointing. seems that K has had higher than usual blood sugars all summer and a severe lack of supervision. Her A1C comes up 8.8 good holy god. Her at DX a1c was 9.0 so you can see why this is not a happy party event. So her endo and I jump right on it and make changes and more frequent testing and now she low low low everyday in school. The end of the day is really bad for her and to top it off she has 2 honors classes 8th and 9th period. wonderful... so we go next month to the endo to get her a1c done again. In the meantime I've changed some ratios and feel that my daughter is one big science experiment. Cross your fingers. oh and she had to get a skin biopsy of her scalp done because she might have a fungus infection of the scalp. lol anything else you want to throw at us......don't answer that, I'm thankful for just having my daughter alive and healthy :) not always happy but hey she's 11 almost 12......shes not supposed to be happy lol

Pods gone bad....

My children are up spending the week with my parents, up in gods land LOL. Middle of no where. Anyway this week was supposed to be relaxing for me because since their dad (my ex) got deployed ( to freakin hawaii) I no longer have every other weekend off (sighhhhh) So as I'm getting ready to go to a girl scout leader meeting I get a phone call from my mom. K's trying to change her pod and it keeps beeping. Ummm okay how many has she tried...wait....get this.....the whole freakin box OMG. So here I am trying no to panic because hey my diabetic daughter is 6 hrs away with no needles or lantas or working fing pods. My dad and I come up with a plan of meeting half way in albany, ny. Just what I want to do on a wednesday night, hang out at the christmas tree shop at 8:30p. LOL.

We meet up and K's fine, no longer freaking out and I hand over the pods (20 of them LOL). Then K says she feels low and we sit down at the food court to test, ummmm she has NO STRIPS. can it get worse....she starts to cry ( shes 11, she does that alot) I send her step dad to get her a real soda and he gives me a funny look and saids "regular not diet" I have him trained well ;). I tell him shes low and he goes to get it. After the soda she starts to feel better but doesnt want to eat, so my dad packs her up and they drive back to nowhere.

The best is that as they are pulling away and waving, I realize my 11 yr old is in the front seat, ugh grandparenting fail.

Diabetes and Vacation

My Kids are off on vacation with their Dad. They went to the beach this year, all three of them are very happy to spend some time with their father. The difference this time is the extra child named diabetes. You see their dad doesn't deal with diabetes on a regular basis and doesnt know all the weird things this extra child can do. So I sit here and worry and wonder what the heck is going on at that beach house and in the ocean. I get a few text messages from K, that all is fine and she loves me but thats it. aahhh it is very hard to give up the control you have of your children when they are in your house. Oh well I will try to enjoy my one week off a year, in between packing for the new house and cleaning the old one.
