I just ordered a couple of HOT PINK “dog tags” and a sport bracelet from www.laurenshope.com
I’m looking for a “medic alert” charm for her charm bracelet. I’m trying to give her several different options. So when she is playing sports she’ll have one type, when she is dressed up she’ll have a nicer one, etc. I figure the dog tags will be good to hang from her back pack or purse?
As for her condition, she is home and she is adjusting well. My wife is also doing great. I’m still stressed out over the whole thing. But I think we are settling down into a routine and getting adjusted to things. We still have to get up at 2am to take her blood test, but she actually sleeps right through that test!
One of the ladies at the church grabbed me after mass Sunday and invited us to go to Diabetes Camp with them next summer. One of the girls from her school emailed her and told her that she also is diabetic and takes insulin and if she wanted to talk she should call. . . they have not called each other, but they are now emailing each other daily.
I ordered a “Flowers & Butterfly” insulin carry bag that she can use to carry her supplies with her. I also ordered a larger bag that we can use for family outings when we go overnight or away for a weekend.
And I broke down and ordered her a cellphone . . . also HOT PINK. I hate the idea of children having cellphones, but now I can’t imagine that she can go anywhere without one. Funny how things change with the situation changes.
Anyway, I want to thank everyone for all the support and prayers. We got very very lucky that this was caught so early in the course of the disease. She has had no ill effects so far and we hope to keep it that way.
