It's hard to believe that a week has passed since I wrote last.
I had my EMG test on my arm. Let me say, thats one of the most painful tests that I've ever had done! The results showed that the nerves in my arm are good but I've got severe carpal tunnel in my right wrist. So...that leaves me with the only option of surgery. I'm not looking forward to it. Typing has become more painful because my hand and fingers go numb so I'm not on here very long anymore. I'll update as I can with surgery details.
I also had the chance to meet with Kacey's teachers this year. I've always heard that 4th grade is a tough year but after meeting all 3 of the teachers, I'm confident that this will be one of her easiest years. They were all very understanding and I'm really looking forward to Kacey going back. I was able to explain highs and lows, all about Herbie, glucose testing and what to expect from Kacey on a daily basis. They were all open and so nice! I had both girls with me. These 3 teachers are the same ones Kayleigh had 6 years ago in 4th grade so they were excited to see her. Kacey showed off Herbie, pulled her shirt up to show off her tummy site, showed them how she tests her sugar and she acted so confident with herself. I can't believe how easy this was compared to last year. I went into the school last year as a scared Mommy but this year I went in feeling much safer. I know Kacey can care for herself and she's grown by leaps and bounds this past year. We go back to school for Open House on Thursday and then school starts back next Tuesday!
It's gonna be a GREAT year!
