Day 11

Today both kids had an endocrinologist appointment.... It was nice to be able to take both kids at the same time... But that meant 2 co pays as well..and I totally didnt think of that!! Every month its $50 for Craigs insulin, $50 for Madis insulin and today it was $70 for their doctors appointment...Plus the cost of their snacks... See they need certain snacks that are "free of carbs" to eat with out getting a shot..although they can have carb snacks, but if you had to get a shot with everything you ate, wouldnt you want a few snacks with out getting a shot?? Plus the cost of gatorade and juice (which keeps their number up while they are active)..Its just a lot of extra cost that adds up....Although I do know we are very blessed to have insurance to help with the costs.. because although this has added over a couple hundred dollars a month to our bills, if we did not have insurance, the insulin, test strips, lancets and diabetes supplies would cost over $1000 per child...can you even imagine??? Thanks goodness for insurance!
