Both kids got approved for CGMs and they are both hooked up!
"I think I should do a video diary for a night in the life of a d mom.... This is both kids right now.. Madis alarm went off so I got her a drink to bring her back up.. Craig had his in his room but I thought if check him.. Apparently he slept through his alarm because he was 43!!! I'll be keeping his in my room from now on. Both kids got juice, now I wait 15 minutes and hope their sugars come up.. Then they need a protien-carb food.. Sleep is not in my future."
But the great thing about the CGM is the alarms!! theres so much less guessing! I love that.
One problem we are having is with Craig.
He is doing baseball and also is on the HS dive team.. SO he is in teh pool A LOT! they sensors dont want to stay on. We have tried skin tak.. and Tegaderm.. Now he put the site in his arm and is wraping it with waterproof medical tape so we will see if that works better! Any ideas are welcome!!
Im also taking a break from making pump pouches/belts.. I have been so busy with working 6 days a week, having 4 kids (2 with T1) and Im starting school in 2 weeks! I will do custom orders if you email me though.. And I kept a few glucose meter cases up on my Etsy Page. I felt so guilty taking them down because I know how nice it can be to have a new case.. Kids get excited about it.. but I just only have so much time in the day!
Both kids have started school! Madi is in 1st grade and her teacher is great!! Sh e even doses her for snack time! And Craig is a Sophmore (really?!) and he is pretty independent so he does everything himself..
Another exciting thing is that Craig was chosen to be a JDRF youth ambassador! Im eso proud of him that he isnt shy about talking about Type 1.. he isnt scared to tell his story, educate others and advocate for this disease! Excited for the things to come!
