April Showers Bring...Blogger Basal!

Welcome to the April edition of Blogger Basal! 

You know the old adage April showers bring May flowers!  Well it kept popping into my head as I was thinking about the DOC (Diabetes Online Community) this month.  Ok truthfully, it's popping into my head because we have had non-stop rain for so many days this month that I have lost count!  It's actually a bit depressing.  The rain is more than depressing, it can evoke so many emotions...inconvenience, disappointment, frustration, annoyance. 

Diabetes is kind of like the rain...depressing, inconvenient, disappointing, frustrating, annoying...I could go on!  But just as the rain brings flowers and new life....EEERRRRRR!  (You know, that's supposed to be the slamming on the brakes sound!)  Wait a minute!  What positive thing could possibly come from diabetes?

Well, I've said it before.  The friendships and support that I have found in the DOC are like nothing I've ever experienced.  Each member is as beautiful as the Spring's finest bloom! 

If we have to endure the rain together, we might as well take a minute to smell the flowers!  (And also, to read some of this month's finest blog posts!)  So, as I think Stephanie's superhero Adam would say, "Let's get "DIABETICAL" with it!" (The Blogger Basal, that is!).

I Still Cry by Tracy

The rain...Don't get me wrong, I am not sitting around crying all the time. Sometimes these cries are more silent than others. But, Diabetes HURTS and I think it is OK to cry over something that has taken over our lives and changed it from the course we were heading down.

The flowers...The thing that gets me through the tears is seeing his smiling face. He is still a happy little boy, despite all the pain and pokes.

The Blue Candle by Kimberly
The rain...Every time I log on to my computer and I see profile pictures of blue candles, I lose too many breaths and my heart skips too many beats.

The flowers...I want to wake every morning as I do thinking about how blessed I am to have the two most precious little gifts in my life. Every time they look at me, I melt. Every breath they take is reason to me that I am the luckiest woman alive.

The Number 8 by Jen
 The rain...Addison's A1c went up over the past few months...I felt disappointed.
The flowers...Addison is a happy, healthy little guy. He is living a good life. He is getting the most excellent care from his mama and papa pancreas'.

4 Years Later and the Fear is Still There by Kris
The rain...I'm scared of correcting at night. I have been for 4 years. The fear of what happened 4 years ago won't go away.

The flowers...And every single minute of sleep that I lose is worth it just to make sure my sweet girl wakes up each morning.

Insulin, Accessible Necessity or Unattainable Luxury by Nicole
The rain...I complain and whine and cry about type 1 diabetes.

The flowers...I am thankful that we live in a country that believes that insulin is a necessity and not a luxury.

Death of a Pancreas by Amy

The rain...Ellie's pancreas, age 8 years 7 months, died sometime during the 3rd week in April; the probable cause being Type 1 Diabetes, an autoimmune disorder occurring deep in the Islets of Langerhans.
The flowers...Bu-Bye rollercoaster of not-for-any-good-reason-but-a-sputtering-pancreas blood sugars!

Does Spring Entice the Green Eyed Monster? by Sarah

The rain...So, lately I am battling that little green eyed monster.  Feeling a bit envious of all those that embrace each change with a smile on their face and open arms.  I am wishing I could walk into a kids party and not cringe when I see the extra large juice boxes waiting on the table.  I feel like screaming when others say their budget is tight and here we were waiting to reorder insulin and syringes until payday came again.

The flowers...I am letting it go....or at least really trying because I know we have an endless list of reasons to be thankful...  Bring it on spring - I can handle you, just keep all the juice boxes and random extra sweets to yourself!

Why I Still Cry - Part 2 - A Mother's Love by Laura
The rain...When your children hurt - you hurt.

The flowers... there is no love like a mother's love.

Senator Scott Brown: An update by Moira
The rain...Before I could get my entire thought out, you held your hand up in front of my face to stop me (I thought: did he learn that when his daughter’s were teenagers?) and said, “I already know all about diabetes. My grandmother had it.” (taken from her Open Letter to Senator Scott Brown)
The flowers...In just six hours, the social media world had done what no one had yet been able to do: get Senator Brown to stop, think about us, and decide to dedicate some real time to us.

Knocked O-verrr! by Denise aka 'Mom of Bean'

The rain...You have the carb count spot on, you are confident in the ratios, basal rates have been spot on....BUT those BGs just aren't what they are supposed to be.

The flowers...It's at these times I wish I had Gru's coat and I could whip out a high powered D weapon and blast the whole 'game' that we are forced to play each day with this crappy disease away!

SWAGalicious by Heidi
The rain...When you learn from the coworker that nutritional information is not available.
The flowers...And when you see beautiful numbers for the rest of the day, you can officially declare the day and its super sweet, amazingly delicious, worth-every-carb and worth-every-calorie, half-lemon, half-strawberry frozen drink SWAGalicious!
Sweet Response by Lora

The rain...The seizures. The seizure medication and its side effects.  (Some may call that a storm!)
The flowers...Your words lifted my spirits more than you can imagine.

"Marks", "Squirts", JUVIE and PODS  by Reyna
The rain...I am trying to keep him from tripping, careening, falling, or flying to the ground to smash his already damaged melon into the asphalt, dirt, wood chips... pick your poison... it is all dangerous to a concussed cranium.

The flowers...As his body has slowed, interesting things have been discussed and divulged as his thoughts have time to stew.

Dexcom: 1st Grader by Wendy
The rain...But then one upload failed. And another.
The flowers...She held that picture...staring at each smile, touching the sensor images, and laughing at some of the funny faces. For a few minutes she was suspended in her own little world.

Sweetpea's Diaversary: Full Circle  by Hallie

The rain...Tuesday night, Sweets had a severe low.  She dropped from 500 to 32 to LOW in under 2 hours.  She had two seizures.  I used the glucagon.  We called 911.  We thought she wasn't going make it.  (What is with the storms this month?)

The flowers...For now, the important thing is - SHE is fine!  (J and I are still pretty shaken up,)  Dexcom saved her life.  With help from glucagon. 

Teeter. Totter. Breather.  by Meri
The rain...I'm on a teeter totter. 
I've hit the bottom...I feel the hardness of the reality...My head aches from banging the ground.
Diabetes is SUCH a big deal.

The flowers...Other days I'm flying high. Diabetes has nothing on me. My laughter echoes through the clouds. I'm light as a feather and I can stay up all day long. Numbers are good...there are no worries...deep breath...

One Day at a Time  by Heather
The rain...Last week at this time we had just returned from the emergency room with Princess with the horrible news that I would now be taking care of two children with Type 1 diabetes.  (Another storm!)

The flowers...Every time Princess gets a shot, Rufus has to get a shot too. I am so glad her bear is such a comfort to her.

A Poem of Lies  by Diane
The rain...There are many misconceptions about type 1 diabetes.

The flowers...This funny poem was written as part of the Health Activist Writer Monthly Challenge to write a poem where every line is a lie or misconception about your disease.

A Box Full of Hope  by Jennifer
The rain...I must say though; going through the box, picking up literature after carb counting book, after insulated totebag, I did fight back tears.

The flowers...I'm so happy for our daughter to be celebrated at long last and loved and embraced WITH her diabetes. It's not a "condition" anymore, its part of who she is and that can make her special.

It Takes a Village...or at Least a Classroom by Leighann
The rain...It’s not fair for a child to have to be anything but a carefree child.

The flowers...So while diabetes has definitely changed who my daughter is, and in many ways making her an even more caring and compassionate person and has given her empathy towards others, I think the same is happening for the children around her. And THAT is an amazing and powerful thing.

The Great Timing of All Things Going Wrong by Amy
The rain...So, of course, by the next day someone was sick. Lots of snot. Lots of hacking. Temps, Tylenol, tea and honey.  And then it just spiraled.
The flowers...Finally, I find a place that carries the tubing and is not closed. I'm very thankful. My husband thanks the store for being open on a Saturday.

On the Road: Chicago Diabetes Expo 2011 by Mike
The rain...When we left Indy, we thought the only diabetes showcase we would be attending was the one in Chicago.  As it often does though, diabetes had other plans and put on its own exposition. 

The flowers...All in all, the trip to the Chicago Diabetes Expo was a great experience and is something that I’m definitely looking forward to doing again.  I met some awesome people, learned some things, and had fun. 

Dear Blog by Donna
The rain...Dear Blog, I miss you!

The flowers...I am busy in ways I have never been busy before.  And I LOVE my new life!

(And this may be a first, in BB history!  We are highlighting to awesome VLOGS this month!  Just click on the links to see the video blogs.)

The Perfect Diabetic by Ginger V.
The rain...Diabetes Sucks!

The flowers...You don't have to be a perfect diabetic!

What's In My Diabetes Bag VLOG  by Haley
The rain...Haley has a broken hand :(

The flowers...She has turned this mishap into a new talent...check out her VLOG!  (And she gave my daughter an idea that has put a smile on her face all week!)

April showers bring May flowers!  And you can't have one without the other!

Frogs...and LFAC

Ally turned 8 years old this month.  If you read Where Has The Time Gone? you got to take a stroll down memory lane with me and see how she has grown through the years. 

You also may remember that she decided to spend some of her birthday money on pet frogs that she has been eyeing for a long time.  And now, without furthure ado...
...Meet Princess and Lily!

Ally did not let me forget that she wanted to donate some of her birthday money to Life For a Child, so that is what we did today!

Good Friday

I just read Amy @ Three Thirty Three's Good Friday post and it reminded me that I don't stop often enough to reflect on the things for which I am truly grateful.  The idea of Good Fridays originated at Diapeepees blog, where Roselady encourages others to reflect on three good things in their lives.

With this being Holy Week leading up to Easter, it was a perfect time for me to participate.  Each year on Good Friday, I typically take some time to myself to reflect.  I remember Good Friday as a kid, when my dad would come home from work at noon and we would have quiet time or attend a prayer service for 3hours from noon to 3.  I can't say that I took 3 hours to reflect, but I am especially grateful for these 3 things today.

1.  I am grateful that my husband has a good job.  But I am even more grateful tonight that he is finally home after 3 long weeks of traveling for work! 

(I'm not the only one that's happy to have him home!)

2.  I am also grateful for the rain.  Yes, we sure have been blessed by the rain this spring!  This picture of a parking lot at a nearby baseball field was taken by my friend Jennifer.  (And I should note that it is thundering as I write this...bring on the next storm!)

Sure, it may be a bit of an inconvenience, but I sure love seeing all the flowers blooming, the new growth on all the plants and trees and especially the green grass!

3.  Finally, I am grateful for friendly neighbors.  I went to the grocery store yesterday with my two youngest girls.  A friendly couple, whom we had never met, stopped us and asked if it was ok if they bought a balloon for the girls.  I said that was very kind of them, thinking that they were going to give each of them a small latex balloon.  The couple went to the floral department and THIS is what they returned with.

The woman said that her grandchildren were all grown and she wanted my girls to have a special Easter.  I am grateful for this Random Act of Kindness that they modeled for my girls.  Jessi was not only ecstatic about her giant bunny balloon, but she just could not get over the fact that the lady didn't EVEN know her name and had done such a nice thing for her!

Happy Easter to you all!

Little White Lies

Ally has been telling little white lies lately.  Well, I guess that is half true.  Little white lies are supposed to be the kind that don't hurt anyone.  And while Ally's little white lies have not hurt anyone, I can't decide if they are truly harmless.

I have noticed her grabbing a piece or two of her younger sister's snacks.  She does it in a rather sly way, thinking that no one is noticing that she popped them in her mouth.  Most of the time, a few Goldfish crackers or yogurt raisins are not going to send her blood sugars into space.  But I feel like I can't let it go.  If she starts thinking its ok to pop a few of this in her mouth, then pretty soon it will be a few of that too!  I don't want her to have an eating disorder because of diabetes!  When I have "caught" her doing this, I simply say, "Ally, would you like some Goldfish?"  She always answers me "No!"  I try to speak calmly and not come off as upset by her "sneakiness."  I say, "Well, just let me know if you do and we can bolus you for the carbs."  She says, "Ok," and then moves on.  It has happened numerous times now and I just don't know what to do.  I don't want to make it an issue...but I don't want to ignore it if it is an issue.  Does that make sense?  What would you do?????

A second instance of little white lies.  We were outside enjoying a beautiful spring afternoon.  We have been cooped up inside all winter long and we are ecstatic to be able to enjoy some sunshine!  She was unusually whiny and arguing constantly with her sister.  (Not that this is unusual, but Ally is pretty laid back and she is usually the one to difuse the situation.  She was instigating on this afternoon.)  When she cries easily, it tends to be an indication that her blood sugar is either dropping or high.  Could be either!  Or neither!  She's 8!  Anyway, we asked her to go inside and check her blood sugar.  I have a hard time disciplining her when I suspect that diabetes is the culprit.  So, I usually have her check her bg and then deal with the behavior situation.  (Which is really not often...again, Ally is usually so easy going and very pleasant to be around!!)  Anyway, she went inside.  Keith checked on her in minute or two.  She was still screaming at us through tears about the scooter that SHE was using (we have 2 by the way).  Keith ignored the screaming and crying and asked her what her blood sugar was.  She replied 110.  Her CGM did not show any arrows indicating that she was dropping, so we had her sit for a few minutes until she gained her composure and was ready to play again.  Dinner was in about 35 minutes.  CGM showed steady, so we did not re-check her blood sugar.  A little while later, her CGM was alarming high.  BG=308.  Because it did not seem to me that the food she ate should have made her spike that high, I went back to the log and looked to make sure that we bolused her for dinner.  Yes.  Then I remembered that we had not re-checked her before dinner since she had just checked about 35 mintues before that.  So, I pulled the meter out to double check what that number was.  Remember she told us 110.  Hmm.  The last meter reading was from breakfast.  (This was a school day, so the other checks during the day had been at school.)  So I asked Ally which meter she used.  She told me the one in the D-bag.  I said no you didn't because the last reading on that one was breakfast.  She said something like "Oh, then I must have used a different one."  We do have extra meters around, but none of them were handy and I KNEW that she had not used one of them.  I checked her pump...no meter readings for the pre-dinner time.  SHE LIED TO US!!!  I couldn't believe it.  I was so angry I didn't even know what to say!  I was hung up on the fact that she lied.  Keith calmly whispered to me, WHY do you think she would lie to us about that?  UGH!  Again, I kind of "get" why she didn't want to check.  I'm sure she is sick and tired of pricking her finger and checking her blood sugar.  I'm sure that she hates having to interrupt her classes, her playtime, everything! to check her blood sugar.  I'm sure that she is annoyed by us asking her all the time what her BG is or what her CGM says.  I DO UNDERSTAND!  But she CAN'T LIE TO US!  Again, I tried to calmly talk to her about it and I told her that it is very important that she is honest with us.  We work so hard every day to keep her safe and healthy and we need to work together, not against each other.  She had a tear (she HATES disappointing us) and said she understood.

And all of this leads up to TODAY!!!  I got a text from the school nurse saying that her numbers had been good today, but that her teacher had stopped the nurse to ask her how Ally's numbers were today because she didn't seem herself.  She seemed more sluggish than normal.  Well, again, we GUESS.  Is she Low?  Is she High?  Is she tired?  Is it this nasty, gloomy, rainy weather we are having?  Is she getting sick?  WHO KNOWS!  But the nurse thought she'd let me know just the same. 

Ally came home from school with a math problem solving paper from today.  She only got 4 out of 10.  This is not like Ally.  Her teacher sent a new copy home and let us redo the paper.  I let her do it by herself.  She got them all correct without any help.  So why the 40% earlier today? 

I looked at her BG log from school.  Hmm.  She had gone to the clinic at 10:15 with a "low alarm" on her CGM.  Nurse P's log read:  10:20 Low alarm-CGM=108.  I'm thinking, she shouldn't be alarming low if the CGM says 108, but I figured she had dropped because breakfast carbs just hadn't kicked in yet, and by the time she went to the clinic she was on the way up again.  Her fingerstick was 111.  All the rest of her BG checks today were in range.  I was still a little perplexed with the teacher's observations of her unusual behavior today and her math score, so I downloaded her pump and CGM tonight.  This is what I saw...

The green shaded area is her target range, the blue line represents the CGM readings and the black dots are BG meter readings (fingersticks).  I would also like to give a shout out to the CGM here!  Look how closely the curve of the CGM matches the BG readings! 

As I studied today's summary, I noticed that between 8-12 am she was in range the whole time.  She never dropped below her target.  AND...there are no little alarms!  If she had truly had a low alarm at 10:20, there would be a little picture of an alarm on this graph. ??? Now I'm really confused!  I went up to ask her about it (she was already in bed, but I was confused!) and she said she didn't remember.  Then I got the feeling that she was not being honest - AGAIN!  I said, did you go to the clinic because you felt low or because you were alarming?  She was quiet.  I told her that she didn't do anything wrong and that I was just trying to figure out if I needed to adjust her insulin.  She said that she felt low, but she told her teacher and the nurse that she was alarming low.  Why does she feel the need to lie about it?  Breaks my heart!  And makes me mad too!  Again, I tried to just focus on the facts.  I told her that I was very proud of her for going to check her blood sugar when she felt low.  I told her that I don't care if her CGM says 400 and she feels low, go check!  I said, "I will never be upset at you for feeling low or for checking your blood sugar."

So I am sitting here, still perplexed about today.  I don't understand what was going on today.  Why was she acting off (to her teacher)?  Why did she do so poorly on a paper that she clearly understands how to do?  Why did she feel like she needed to lie about feeling low?

And then I thought back about these other recent white lies.  Should I be concerned?  One more thing to "sleep on" tonight!  Maybe I'll have more insight tomorrow.  In the meantime, feel free to share yours with me!

Where Has The Time Gone?

 We celebrated Ally's 8th birthday this weekend.  I just can't believe that she is 8!  Where has the time gone??  Enjoy a stroll down my memory lane with me :) 

(Please excuse the picture quality of some of the photos...I guess I haven't had my digital camera for as long as I thought.  I had to take pictures of some of these photos because I couldn't find a digital copy.)

Happy 8th Birthday to Ally!

Ally's 7th Birthday

Ally's 6th Birthday
(Just 2 months after she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.)

 Ally at 5 years old

 Ally at 4 years old

Ally at 3 years old

Ally's 2nd Birthday

Ally's 1st Birthday

 My Sweet Allison
born April 10, 2003

How quickly these years have flown by.  And now my little girl is 8!
I am looking forward to watching her grow for many more years to come...
But I will never forget how precious she was during these early years.

By the way, did you notice the blue circle flower that she wore in her hair on her 8th birthday?  This is just one of the many items from the Candy Hearts Collection of blue circle merchandise.  My friend Wendy at Candy Hearts has partnered with several businesses in this campaign to support Life for a Child.  Proceeds from the sale of these items will provide insulin and supplies to children in need around the world.

At her birthday party, Ally received numerous compliments on her blue circle flower.  She was happy to tell them about Life for a Child.

Life For A Child Button 2

I am so proud to tell you that Ally is turning into such a mature, beautiful little girl.  (Yes, she's still my little girl.  Even though she asked me if turning 8 meant she was a "pre-teen"...NOT!)  Ally received some money for her birthday.  She has decided that she would like to use some of it for that pair of pet frogs that she has been wanting (oh yay!).  AND she would like to donate the rest to Life for a Child.

You too can save a child's life and support Life for a Child by making an investment in the Candy Hearts Collection.  There are several vendors participating in Candy Hearts' campaign and you can check them out HERE

You can also make a direct donation, as Ally will be doing, by clicking on the button below.  Donations are accepted on behalf of Life For A Child through HOPE Worldwide.  For more information on making a donation, visit Candy Hearts blog.

These Prizes Could Be Yours If...

At each of our visits to the endocrinologist we are asked to set a goal.  Most times I feel like my goal is the same...to keep Ally safe and healthy.  But they want specifics.  So this time we set a goal of getting Ally involved in meal planning and carbohydrate counting - in an age appropriate way.  I actually am pleased with this goal because it has forced me to take a look at something that I've been wanting to focus on for a long time.  Nutrition.  I believe that it is important for all of us to eat a healthy, balanced diet.  I try to plan healthy meals for our family, but I feel like I have so much to learn in this area.  And when you throw diabetes in the mix, I have even more to learn.  Glycemic index, high fat, low fat, no carb, low carb, simple sugars, complex carbs...it all matters.  And it matters what combinations of these you have as well.  I will share my new found knowledge with you as I'm learning.

But not today!  Today is a SUGAR BOLUS!!!  That's right...One of the following prizes could be yours if...(your comment is randomly chosen by Random.org!)

The DOC gives so much to me!  I would like to take this opportunity to give back.  These prizes were chosen with my goal of better nutrition in mind.  Isn't it easier to be in the kitchen when you make it fun?

The 1st prize is Nicole Johnson's Diabetes Recipe Makeover cookbook.  I purchased one of these for myself at a local bookstore and had a BOGO coupon, so guess who gets the free one!!

I have made several of the recipes in this cookbook and I really like it.  I especially like that she took common recipes and transformed them into something a little healthier.

The recipes are easy to follow and of course each recipe includes nutrition facts.  The cookbook also has pictures of each recipe.  I don't know about you, but I am much more inclined to make something when I see a picture of it!

Prize #2 is an apron and matching towel that I came across at the grocery store.  The vibrant colors caught my eye.  Loved the saying too!  Live in the Moment.

And Prize #3 is for the kid in all of us!  This piggy timer and silicone spatula are bound to make cooking more fun!

Three prize packages designed to encourage your inner "nutritionist". 

Three lucky winners!

Now all you have to do is enter.  Here are the Sugar Bolus rules:
