Kacey logged her blood sugars and carbs all day without me telling her to. She was so proud of herself when she got home from school and happily took out her book and showed me what she'd done!

(BTW, "3 GT means 3 Glucose Tabs)

Sure, it's not the neatest in the world....but WHO CARES?!?! I'm thrilled that she logged!!! It took her a few more seconds but it was so worth it to see the proud smile on her face. I praised her over and over with loads of hugs and kisses. One day down....a lifetime to go!
I got an email back from Kacey's CDE today. We're making 2 more basal changes. We're gonna try that 4am rate increase and then add in an 11am rate to decrease it back and see what happens. We're trying to bring her down when she's waking up and bring her up from afternoon lows.
Tomorrow is the big REPORT CARD day! Why do I feel this sickening knot in my stomach? I feel it because I know that we had a 7.2% the last time we went and I know it's gone up and I'm dreading hearing the number! We get to see her Endo tomorrow and I know it's time for that lab work again...ugh! Keep us in your prayers tomorrow :)

Good Job Kacey! We have a log book like that- Jada thinks it's the neatest thing in the world! :) Now...if I would only be better about logging on a daily basis!!! Show me how it's done, Kacey!

Yes, I think we are ALL that defensive!!
Tell Kacey "Great Job" from us... Justin is almost 9 and I can't trust him to be that responsible.
Good luck tomorrow at the Endo, I am sure everything will be great.

Way to go, Kacey! What a wonderful job! Although our kiddos are forced into responsibility earlier than we might like, they do a great job. It takes a special child to handle this disease with the grace and courage that our kids show. So proud of them all!
