I am so sure it hasnt been months since I’ve posted. Except it has.
Life is living itself in fast forward whether Im on board or not. It does not slow down no matter how nicely I ask or how pissed I get.
Let’s catch up! Braden got a CGMS – the NEW Dexcom G4. I’ve only been asking for this ever-loving piece of equipment since diagnosis, yet hear we are almost a year later and just getting started. Which leads me to the next bit of news – Im firing Childrens Hospital Diabetes Clinic and we have our first appt early in December. It feels damn GOOD to take this step. While Im thankful we had resources when Braden was diagnosed, I quickly found the flaws of a large clinic’s care, and its not for us.
Hmmm, lets see. I almost thought I lost Nolan at the park today. Yes, my life is now 10 years shorter. He was hiding from me ON PURPOSE and I was panicked and screaming. He was laughing. I told him that if he hides from Mommy a monster will get him.
Not a practical parental response, but he’s obsessed with monsters right now so its sure to do the trick. And we’ve rehearsed “What happens if you hide from Mama?”
“E monsser gonna get you”
