Thinking Thankful Thoughts... and one that I failed to acknowledge is my epic gratitude for Insulin. The girls and I were at a friends for dinner last night, and Rowan received two units before dinner, and I kept a close eye on what she ate. But half an hour after dinner, she was clearly not herself. The only information I could get out of her was "I don't feel good". She was in a slump, not talkative, unbelievably low energy. "Do you have a tummy ache?" I ask "No". "Do you have a headache?" I ask. "No". Oh come on kid, throw me a lead here, will ya? So, much to her protest, I adminstered another unit and a half of insulin, and within ten minutes I knew I had done the right thing, and she started to come around.
This Mama of a Diabetic does not even want to think what the world would be like if that team of bickering Canadians didn't discover this miracle. Now if we could just find a cure, THAT will be the true miracle! But knowing it's in the works, is another thing to be grateful for.
See? Once you start tapping into the gratitude, it has a snowball affect, and you realize exactly how blessed you are, regardless of circumstances.
Thanks for stopping by! (weeeeeee- more gratitude!)
