Day 120

today  is a rough one for Craig..He has been a little discouraged with his numbers.. He was in the 300's and just irritated that it may mean we need to change his doses.. He can only have 20 carbs per unit of insulin right now so he doesnt get many "free" snacks..That bothers him.. well he is 13, so everything bothers him right now!!

Today was our diabetes maintenance day.. We gathered all of the meters to make sure they are fully stocked with test strips, lancets, wipes...With 2 kids, busy kids.. with type 1, we have meters here, there and everywhere! In the car, in the house, in backpacks, in baseball bags, in my purse... So periodically we have to locate all of them and double check that they have what they need..

 This is usually what Craigs meters look like...He just puts the used strips to the side so when you open it up, they fall out.. awesome.. typical for a kid in a hurry though:)
