A couple of very special people are helping to get me through this. Last night, I had a girls night out with a couple of my BFFs from high school. It is always great catching up with them. Earlier this week, we had the opportunity to meet Noah, the Diabetes Dude, and his family. They stopped by to visit before heading up to diabetes camp as part of their I Feel Free Tour. It was a great opportunity for a few D families to get together and I was happy to meet several new D Mamas out there.
|The Diabetes Dude with Dancing Danie came to town!|
I freaked out a little bit when I saw this picture posted by the DD crew the night before they visited camp.
A terrible storm rolled through the area. I was up all night worrying about Ally and wondering if she was a little scared about the storm. I bet those BGs were through the roof!
My saving grace...Hallie and Sweetpea from The Princess and the Pump! Did you recognize them in that picture with Dancing Danie? Sweetpea is the DD ambassador for our state and therefore she travelled with the DD crew to diabetes camp yesterday. I gave them all very strict orders to check on Ally while they were there. And this is what I got!!
And because Alexis at Justice's Misbehaving Pancreas wanted to know...
today is actually a site change day for Ally. This is how it is supposed to go down.
I sent all of Ally's pump supplies (way more than needed just in case any come loose from all the swimming!) organized in individual ziploc baggies. Each baggie contained everything needed for a site change - Reservoir, Mio infusion set, alcohol swab, and Infusion Set IV3000. They have doctors and nurses assigned to each cabin, in addition to the three counselors who have type 1 diabetes. When it is time for a site change, they will assist her in filling the reservoir, rewinding the pump and inserting the infusion set. I told them that I do all of these steps and that Ally would not be able to do any of them on her own. They said that she will not be doing it on her own, but if she wants to learn they will do it with her. And if she doesn't, they will do it for her! I am a little bit anxious to hear how it goes today.
And before time runs out, make sure that you visit the NaturallySweett Haley for an awesome giveaway! She is giving away a medical alert bracelet from Lauren's Hope! We LOVE Lauren's Hope!!
Three down. Three to go.
