lovely weekend full of lows

My kid is so amazing!
I know I know, ALL of our kids are amazing but the d-kids I know are the bravest people I know. 

The weekend was full of farmers markets, yard sales, dog walks and a lot of talking about diabetes.  Looking at the logbook of Colins numbers you would never know that there was any problems but there were.  All of his mealtime numbers were great 5.0 - 7.2 was his range but within an hour after every meal or snack we saw 2.6 - 3.1 every time!!??WTF   I wonder if this is because he is growing because he was well carbed and I even cut his insulin in the morning and at dinner.  I can't wait till puberty starts (rolls eyes) it's a whole new ball game then I bet.  Needless to say through all the lows this weekend he didn't let it get him down and that's one of the reasons I think he's so awesome.  Colin was out front with me and the neighbour (she's just moved in with her 16 month old girl) and when he had a low he sat down cleaned his finger off, got the test kit ready and she said "OMG he's not going to poke his finger is he? Eeewwww gross" and she ran on her porch squealing like a stuck pig.  Once he tested she came back and saw his number and saw me get him a juice box and we sat on the driveway till he was feeling better.  When she came back she told me that there was "no way ever" that she could do that to her daughter and she would never give her needles.  I laughed at her and told her that her daughter would die if she didn't and that she would get over it real quick if it was her child.  I tried to be nice but she started in on me about just not feeding him anything with sugar in it so he didn't need insulin.  I almost spit my drink out when she said this, seriously.  I told her that if she wanted I could bring her some stuff to read so that if she sees Colin in need of some help she will know the disease a bit better.   She said no!  I tried to explain to her that carbs = sugar and that he needs sugar to live and she still didn't get it.  I think shes thinking that type 2 and type 1 are the same, maybe I'll slip some reading materials into her mailbox lol. 
Hope everyone is feeling great and enjoying the sun :)

I know it's been a long time since I have posted but we have just been so darn busy, sorry :(
To tell you the truth I have been thinking about pumping so much lately that it's making me crazy and very scared.  There are days when I really don't like the idea of starting over again, lately C's sugars have been excellent and diabetes in general has been a breeze.  That little voice in my head is saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but Colin wants to have the freedom to eat more of what he wants and when he wants to eat it.  With the summer almost here I can see why he is feeling this way, cool drinks and freezies are the best unless you are a type 1.  The reasons don't stop there though, I will be learning it all on my own and then teaching it to Daddy since he works out of province for 3 weeks straight every month.  I am one of those people who needs a 2nd pair of eyes and ears for all the learning so that I can ask "hey they said to do it like this right?" but I won't have that other person here to bounce stuff off of and that scares me more than anything.  I don't know how you single parents out there do it, I tip my imaginary cap to you all.  I know it wont be totally like diagnosis again since I have almost 4 yrs of this under my belt it "should" be a little easier on me and not confuse me so much.  Ahhhhh well Clinic is June 9 and hopefully the endo will give us the thumbs up and we can start the summer off pumping.  Does anyone out there think that starting pumping in the summer is a good or bad idea, pls share?  I figure since we are home and he's off it is the right time but what do I know lol.  

Hope everyone is having a great weekend

exhausted is an understatement.

Hello y'all what's going on? Trying out posting on my newish phone so I hope this works.
Colin has been doing great lately and he makes me so proud. Lots of swimming and basketball lately so that is definitely making me so tired. Lots of pump talk at home so all we r waiting for is clinic in June. Why can't we just do it now??!! Lol

Ok well the couch is calling me, ciao!

Long time no posty

I hate that I haven't been blogging lately but I think that is about to stop.  I have been sick with a horrible flu & cold that kicked the proverbial poop outta me for almost 2 weeks and the last thing I could do was blog.  I missed you all very much and peeked in on your blogs still to keep up with everyone :)

Tomorrow afternoon is our first pump info session and I am terrified, I am glad I have fake nails right now cause i would be biting them off if not.  I am so scared about how much more work it is going to be and I wonder if this means the end of sleep for me.  But I am so excited for Colin and I know its the right choice for him.  He says that the only reason he wants it is so that he can eat like a "normal kid" meaning how much he wants and when he wants it.  I can't say I blame him either.

I imagine that I will be coming to you all for advice and support  so bare with me if I'm a weepy, whiny mess for a while.  Sorry in advance lol.

Nite all
