Day 116

I feel so bad that I havent been blogging..I just started a Mon-Friday job to help pay for all of our "new" expenses... Who knew diabetes was such an expensive disease?? I didnt thats for sure!!
Every Friday I post a "why we walk" post on facebook.. Here was Fridays...

why we walk.. I now have an mon-friday job.. Which I have not had in a very long time.. why? because the monthly cost of diabetes is SO much.. And we have amazing insurance... but what it doesnt cover every month adds up..
home owners Insurance on insulin pumps $120
Insulin $50
Glucagon $25
Pump and meter care (batteries, pouches, ect) $30
Juice boxes $15
Glucose tabs $10
Protien bars/jerky $50
Free snacks $20
Gatorade $15
extra supplies $100
Doctors bills $70
$505 extra in bills per month just from diabetes, and Im sure Im leaving something out! we want a cure!!

We are walking this year and each friday I post a reason we fundraise and why we need a cure..  

on another note..
Today at church Madi had to check her glucose.. She started checking and a little girl said "Ew.. thats disgusting!'

I felt so sad for Madi... She has to do it and she is so used to doing it now that I guess I didnt think someone would think its gross...It made me sad to know people will say those things to her.. although this little girl has no idea and was just saying what she thought, it still sucks!  Madi may have said the same thing before she knew anything about it you know?? but no mom wants to hear someone say that to their little girl....

Also this week.. Miss Madi and I got a pedicure.. Anyone elses T1 kiddo have really coarse feet?? Madis are so bad! It was nice for her (and I) to get pampered.. Havent had a pedicure in like 6 months!! Since I got paid I decided we needed one!!
