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.

Sugar Coated Dragons

She wanted poptarts for bedtime snack...
70 grams carbohydrates
2.1 units
Dual wave bolus.
Missed the wave.
Crashed on rocky glucose shores.

21.8 mmol
She sleeps
While I chase her sugary dragon
Perhaps drawing a syringe
Instead of a sword.
