Day 42

Well Im taking a week off.. from blogging at least..Ill be back next week:) Ill let you know how the cruise went with 2 diabetics on board!!
 (Im sure there will be more than just our kids right?)
who knows..anyway, we are off to Alaska for the week. Super excited!! And super prepared.. extra snacks, needles, insulin, and strips are packed and ready to go..It takes a lot to prepare for a week away.... You have to pack, then pack backs ups as well..just in case! Because for kids (and anyone) with Type 1, missing supplies can mean serious consequences..

Here in 1 suitcase we have:
  • Almonds, peanut bars, jerky and peperoni (free snacks)
  • Sharps container
  • Peanut butter packets (protein they can eat with crackers or an apple on the cruise ship, I got these from Costco, they are perfect!)
  • Apple juice and glucose tablets (quick sugars)
  • Sour Straws (yummy treats..and quick sugars too)
  • Mio (flavors for water with no carbs..tastes like juice, just something different for them to drink besides water..that has no carbs)
  • Needles, lancets, insulin, meters (and also back ups of all of these)

In the mean time, dont forget about our family service project to benefit kids in the hospital.. Look up Day 23 for more details! Thanks all:)
