Diabetes....Please go back on vacation!

Dear Diabetes,

I am writing this letter to please ask you kindly to go back on vacation. We've had a really great 2 weeks since you decided to pack your bags and let Kacey's body settle into good numbers. We've been doing just fine managing life without you rearing your ugly head at us. You decided to come back yesterday after Kacey ate a cupcake at school to celebrate Brandon's birthday. Why Diabetes? Why did you come back and ruin the party? She was only helping her friend celebrate his birthday and you decided to come home...make her feel sick...and kept her blood sugars up all night. Now she's laying on the couch and not going to school today because YOU decided to come home from vacation. Thats not very nice, you know? We didn't want you to come back and we really wish you'd back your bags and permanently keep your nasty butt as far away as possible! Ive heard those islands down south are beautiful!
Thank you so much!

A Loving Mommy


Yep...thats right...diabetes has reared its ugly head and after 2 weeks of amazing blood sugars, Kacey had a cupcake at school for a birthday party...which we bolused for...and her sugars stayed up all night and she woke up at a 168. She hasnt been in the 200's in almost 2 weeks! Shes still feeling sick at her stomach and shes got a headache...so shes laying on the couch with her blanket and Rufus. Looks like we wont be making it to school today *sad* I shoulda known that the good numbers would come to an end sooner or later....just wish it was later!! For now...its just rest!

I just wanted to leave a comment and say hi. I've read just about all of your posts now.

My son was diagnosed with T1 3 years ago at the age of 3. It is a roller coaster ride for sure.

Thank you for what you did to help find a cure. One cannot come soon enough.
