Looking For Cara's Data

One night my husband and I were sitting on the couch, kinda watching t.v. but mostly brainstorming about the changes that we needed to make to Cara's insulin.

That is the one thing about being a parent of a child with type 1 diabetes, there NEVER really is a time you are not running bg numbers through your mind, evaluating the day, count/adding/dividing/calculating carbs and insulin ratios, thinking about supplies needed (which reminds me we need more sites and insulin) or preparing for the day ahead. Your time is no longer "your time" it is now shared and many times over taken with type 1 diabetes. 

We both were throwing a few ideas back and forth without any numbers in front of us and without the real information that you need to look at and study to make this important change and it was getting very frustrating.

I had just downloaded Cara's pump on our Medtronic Carelink program so I said to my husband in my frustration  "can you just go get my computer and look up Cara's data? I really need help"

He paused and looked at me with this wicked smirk on his face "is there something you need to tell me?"  he said.  I just started laughing because it totally sounded like I said "can you just go get my computer and look up Cara's Dada? I really need help"

There are moments of funny with D, thank God!!

We have to laugh at it sometimes. It can be so overwhelming and the best medicine is a good laugh sometimes! lol
