I just couldn't resist the moment to capture this memory on camera. Kacey wants to be a nurse when she grows up so these pictures will be fun when she finally achieves that goal. Final diagnosis: She was a 97. No, it wasn't a low blood sugar but she made herself a snack and she felt better.Personally, my heart kind of did a flutter when I was watching them interact. Kacey took charge and was saying things like "Sissy, it's ok, I do this 10 times a day and it gets easier." and "Sissy, don't be scared. It won't hurt too bad." Just listening to the caring and compassionate nature in her voice reassured me that she's going to be one of those RN's or CDE's that REALLY make a difference in the life of another child with diabetes. This was also one of those moments that they will remember forever. The Sister Bond. Years later when they are having coffee and watching their kids play and Kacey says "Hey, you remember when I checked your blood sugar for the first time?" they are going to sit back and laugh.
Yes, my heart smiled!
