what’s new?

I’m trying to persuade Madeline to consider wearing a CGM. So far, no luck.

Hurricane Sandy is slowly descending upon us. And she brought BG levels in the 400s. And has seemingly turned the insulin into water.

Tea tree cream works well to heal prickled fingertips and toes.

I’m taking the advise of many wise T1D parents by offering cash for candy this Halloween. Let’s hope my kids like $$ more than Twix.

Bus company shenanigans are no match for a vocal and well-informed T1D mother. Go ahead, try me.

Getting a shiny new Accucheck Multiclix lancing device makes me all giddy. I have a feeling Madeline’s school nurse will share in my joy.

Experimenting with grain-free cooking is quite an adventure.

Who knew that psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder sharing a similar DNA variation as T1D? Who knew that this is what’s been gracing Madeline’s face for the past two years?

Recently, Madeline made a project for school that involved writing clues about personal attributes to help the reader guess her as its author. Nary a word about T1D graced that project. Yesssss. <fistpump>
