Sorry for the Silence…and Happy World Diabetes Day

Just a quick note to apologize for not posting in the past month.

Did we ever mention that the girl has Type 1 Diabetes? Since October, Luc and I have been focusing on switching her to a new insulin regime because the old one just wasn’t keeping her blood glucose in check. Since she was diagnosed a year and a half ago, her blood sugar has roller-coastered between too high and too low, rarely in target. And since lows are dangerous in the immediate-term, and ongoing highs are a path to even more health complications later in life, we needed to make a change.

The new insulin she’s on means five injections a day (instead of the old two), plus a minimum of eight blood glucose checks a day (compared to four). It also means a whole new way of preparing her meals, calculating her doses and giving injections.

Needless to say, we’ve been stressed, exhausted, and unable to blog.

I have managed to write a bit about this whole process over on The Parents Space, my outlet for all things diabetes. I’d love it if you’d pop over there and have a read about getting prepared, making the switch and where we are now.

Didn’t plan this, but it’s kind of fitting that I should post today…since it’s World Diabetes Day.

So have a great day, and we promise to be back online soon.

    That is tough! I wish you have the strength that is needed and that you two now are able to use the connection you seem to share. All the best to all of you.
