Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

A Little 2-carb Popsicle to Soothe our Nerves...

Well.   The last 36 hours have been... interesting, to say the least.   We made it through the pizza party (and surprise cupcakes) ok- she was high afterwards, but a correction bolus brought her right back down.  

That's not the interesting part-- the interesting part is that about an hour after the pizza party, our house was struck by lightening and it blew out many of our electronic items.  Craaaazy.   The power was out an hour or so,  no people were injured, and none of our diabetes gear was affected, thankfully-- but still... crazy.   (Click HERE if you'd like to read the whole story, posted on my other blog.) 

We've spent today trying to fix things and figure out a plan for replacing numerous household items.  By supper time we were all pretty frazzled.... and more than happy to partake in one of these new-to-us 2-carb beauties:
Disclaimer: Nobody is paying me to say anything about these... 
I was just particularly happy to have them in my freezer tonight!

Isn't it funny how a simple frozen treat can greatly improve your mood? :)

Do I seem familiar? :)  This blog is new, but I've been around the DOC for a while, and I've been blogging about other topics  for years. I'm AmyMCGS pretty much everywhere online- CWD, Twitter, etc.

Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
