I got a very cool phone call today from Lori at JDRF. For those of you that haven't read further back in my blog, Lori is the lady I was put in touch with for Kacey to receive her Bag of Hope from JDRF when she came out of the hospital. Lori sent us Rufus :) (which we will forever be greatful for!) So back to my phone call... I was at work today and my phone rang with a local number. I took the call and it was her! She was calling to ask Kacey and I to join JDRF when they go to visit Congressman Glenn Nye on Friday. My first instinct... OMG WOOOOWWWW Thats COOL!!!! Then I was quickly hit with... Oh crap! Friday is a school day...Kacey will miss out on school work...I have a job that day and I don't want to have to cancel. Geesh....what a priviledge to be able to go speak with JDRF. I hope this isn't one of those opportunities I'm going to kick myself for not doing. We would have to get up and leave the house by 6am to miss all the morning traffic and head down to Va Beach. Then fight everything coming home. I wouldn't mind doing that but since it's a school day and she's missed so many days already for being sick, I'm going to pass it up. I did tell Lori to PLEASE let us know when something else like this comes up because I know my "Lil D-Advocate" would love to participate in something like this. She does such a wonderful job educating everyone around her and getting people involved so this was right up her alley!
Been a busy few days for us. I love being back to work! I love the reward of walking down the hall and having my name shouted and followed by waving arms and to top it off...the reward of being bombarded with kids who give you hugs because they miss you being in their class! It makes it all worth it :)
Kacey's numbers took a turn after those fries. We're still battling blood sugars in the 300's with no reason why. So, were the fries really evil or did her body just say "Enough with being normal, it's time to drive Mumma nuts again!" I'm beginning to think it's the second one! Hopefully with the use of Dex we will be able to see if there is a pattern to these numbers that we just can't seem to catch with testing 8-10 times a day.
