What can I say.. Today was AWESOME…!
The day we have been counting down for months finally arrived..
💙The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.
Walking to help turn Type 1 into Type NONE.💙
Tally so far – we have raised $4920 …
to go towards finding a CURE… WOW!
We had an AMAZING turnout – it was so wonderful to look out and see a
SEA of Team BE shirts there to support Eden and our family.
AND – even more amazing – the fact that I did NOT CRY…
I started to lose it a couple of times, but managed to stay as strong and brave as I could 😉
A LOT of the time – living with Type 1 Diabetes completely and utterly sucks..
This morning was NOT one of those times..
Well, until we got home and I thought we were going to need to use the glucagon.. yikes… !
T1D just HAD to make an appearance somehow!
Eden tested her blood sugar and was only 50 – pretty darn low.
WITH 5 units of insulin still actively working in her system
that is a LOT of insulin for Eden and an extremely dangerous situation
that right there is a perfect example of eating without knowing exact carb counts, exercising, and not testing blood sugar before eating because of continual snacking…
scary moment – but we got through it and she is now feeling fine.
TAKE THAT D…
not going to ruin today no matter how hard you try!
