Day 66

Well today I took Madi to the Zoo... It was nice out so I though we had better go before it got 116 degrees again!!

 Cell phone pics:)
Madi has had a lot of high numbers the past 2 days.. 1 of them in the 500s...SO>.we are waiting to see if she end up sick this weekend, or if we need to change numbers.. She wakes up at a good number every day, so that is good... We will see what the numbers "tell" us...

Also after school today, Craig goes off to a Boy Scout camp out.. That has been one hard thing about this whole Type 1.. He has his regular camp pack he carries like everyone else with his clothes, sleeping bag, supplies ect..But he also has to carry an extra bag with all of his diabetes supplies.. When he is off in the wilderness, he really has to be sure to have all he needs and "just in case" items.. He carries extra water and gatorade packets, his meter, insulin, needles and wipes, carb/protien snacks, quick sugars, Glucagon and more.. I always worry when he goes.. But he has great leaders and friends so I know he will be ok.. He is pretty good with all of his stuff and keeps on top off things pretty good too, so that helps! Im so glad he still can participate in all of the activities that he enjoys:)
