Woman, Independent Parent, Artist, Advocate, Artifical Pancreas.... and EVERYTHING in between.

I am blessed to be parenting two beautiful girls, ages eight and eleven. My youngest nearly lost her life at age six (August 2010) to diabetic ketoacidosis: an often fatal consequences of undiagnosed type 1 diabetes. This is OUR journey: raw and sometimes, uncensored.

Thank you for visiting wishing good health and a cooperative pancreas to you and yours.

Insulin: Breakfast of Champions

3.9 mmol/L this morning... followed by five jellybeans without having even gotten out of bed. I love the yippy little cheer she lets out when she gets jellybeans.

Mixed her syringe cocktail of 17 units NPH (long lasting insulin) and a unit and a half Novo Rapid (fast acting insulin).

A bowl of oatmeal, a yogurt tube, and a fruit cup later, she's off and running to school!
