Amy – “Too Sweet”
Amy’s blog “Too Sweet” tells the story of her daughter Emma, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when she was only 9 months old. Emma, who has been using an insulin pump since her first birthday, also suffers from multiple autoimmune conditions. Amy’s husband and high school sweetheart is a type 1 diabetic as well, diagnosed at age 26. Amy’s experiences with type 1 don’t end there. Sadly, she lost her father to type 1 diabetes when she was 5-years-old. “I want a cure!” Amy states on her site. Amy also has a son who is fortunately the picture of health. Keeping a positive attitude, Amy took up the task of creating custom, handmade insulin pump pouches for children with diabetes. They can be ordered via TooSweetBoutique.net. Visit Amy’s Blog: “Too Sweet”.

A Decade of Diabetes
Right about this time exactly 10 years ago I was rocking my infant daughter and giving her yet one more bottle. (she’d weaned from breast to bottle in the previous weeks because she was never satisfied) She was restless and insatiably hungry and sweaty and something just wasn’t right. After that… Read More

Change
I was eating a Panda Express recently, (terribly unhealthy, and impossible to bolus for… I know), when my fortune caught my attention.I know it’s a silly, mass produced piece of paper, but the winds of change are definitely a blowin’. Maybe it really was meant for me. Ha!   I mentioned a few… Read More

Boiling over
I feel like a big ole pot of stew, full to the top with so many things I’m trying to keep under my lid. Just simmering all the time…  then someone tosses in -one more little thing- or turns up the heat just enough, and just like THAT it’s boiling over everywhere. One big hot mess of CRAZY,… Read More

She still hates needles…
I think there is a common misconception about children with diabetes “getting used to” shots, pokes and insertions of various kinds. The truth is, they may tolerate it better than a kid who’s life doesn’t depend on it, and they may learn that they have no choice, but getting poked feels exactly the… Read More

Cheers to 2013
Something remarkable happened in 2012. For the first time since Emma’s birth we still had a few dollars left in our flex spending account on New Years Eve! We must’ve forgotten to pay something… ha! It’s a miracle.  Our year has been busy and chaotic, but very blessed.  We are entering… Read More

Try.
Failure is the state or condition of not meeting a desirable or intended objective, and may be viewed as the opposite of success. a) a fracturing or giving way under stress  b) falling short  Fail is also another word for “suck.” (Thank you urban dictionary.)  When your child’s… Read More

7 years
It was unthinkable. 9 months-old? Babies don’t get diabetes. Not even type 1… right? I’m asking my husband, his insulin pump clipped to his waistband, while I google “diabetes in babies.” (very little was to be found about type 1 in babies 7 years ago, only neonatal or monogenic D)  There… Read More

It’s all good until it’s not.
It’s all good, until it’s not. This phrase pretty much sums up living with diabetes. We know what to do and how to manage. We live life. We shoot up, we test, we treat highs, we carb count, we treat lows, we change sites, we test again and we move on. We live pretty normally. Usually it’s all good,… Read More

It’s (really) complicated
If you’re reading my blog you probably already know that diabetes is complicated. Relentless. Exhausting. I’ll never forget reading a blog from my friend Hallie over at The Princess and the Pump called “It’s Complicated.” It highlighted her daughter’s clinical diagnosis as “Type 1 D Without… Read More

Spring Update!
Has it really been six weeks? It’s amazing how time flies!  Well, I am still loving the Sentry! I am sleeping better, many nights, than I have in years. Of course, there are nights that the highs and lows of diabetes make that alarming box one more frustration… but it’s those nights that… Read More

Loving “Our Sentry”
I just wanted to write a little update about our “My Sentry.” After two weeks of waiting for paperwork to be signed off by our endo’s office, our delivery finally arrived last Wednesday. I have to tell you that it’s been a long time since I’ve felt so excited about a purchase. I imagine that this… Read More

Nightmare on D street
We were traveling, somewhere distant and unfamiliar. It was a dark cool night and there was a sense of danger in the moist air. We’d only gone inside the place for a few minutes, but when we returned to the night air the doors locked loudly behind us. “Oh no, wait!! Please open the door, I left… Read More

Random Pinterest Thoughts
I’ve been spending lots of time during my holiday break perusing the enchanting and somewhat addicting site, Pinterest. You cannot imagine the vast array of beautiful ideas and random goodness that are “pinned” to that virtual pin-board unless you spend some time there. Do so at your own… Read More

November is over, but we’re still blue.
November was diabetes awareness month. Today is December 1st, and guess what? Nothing has changed.   My little girl still requires insulin to stay alive. I will still lay awake in bed and calculate the hundreds of factors that influence her blood sugar constantly, day and night. I will… Read More

Thankful.
The holidays are upon us! This has already been a crazy, busy week and we’re only getting started! My mom finally moved in last weekend, my in-laws were in town for a visit this weekend and between school events and booming business…. I’m busier than a one-legged man in a butt kickin’ contest….

Fearing the facts…
As I’m sure you know, there was a controversial ad posted last week by the JDRF. It was a full page ad in the NY Times and the Washington Post. They are taking aim at the FDA and hoping to push them toward allowing some new technology. Technology that moves us one tiny step closer to an “artificial… Read More

The good stuff
Life is complicated.  Some days I’m filled with insanity inducing disbelief at the crazy life we live. Occasionally I feel myself sink into a dark place of anger and sadness and jealousy. There are more days that I find contentment, acceptance and hope. There are also days I feel nothing but… Read More

It’s all about perspective…
We survived another completely insane round of specialist visits last week. Yes, Hell week is over! It was exhausting, but it wasn’t as bad as usual (mentally or physically). It’s amazing how much different the same things feel when they are new and scary vs. routine and expected. As I always say,… Read More

Stable, balanced and other diabetes BS
(the “whatever” song (Tonight, Tonight) is on my playlist :)   There are a variety of perceptions about diabetes management that get under my skin. I assume that chronic misconceptions are part of life for anyone with a chronic health condition, which sucks, D is a little different though… Read More

Back to (ab)normal! An update
Goodbye sweet summer! We are two full weeks into school already and falling back into our routine. After the long, lazy days of sweltering heat, random eating and endless activity it’s always nice to have a set schedule again. At least for the first few weeks…  Family tragedy and chaos… Read More

Hurricane D
As I watched the news coverage about Irene over the past week I saw… diabetes. Not just the concern for my friends with D in it’s path. Not just the fear of them losing power and refrigeration and possibly being without life saving medical supplies. (Natural disasters are one of my biggest fears… Read More

Enjoying the Silence… Our sensor free Summer.
(Enjoy the Silence, fabulously remixed by Linkin Park is on my playlist… just sayin’)   So, we’ve been taking a sensor break for most of the summer. It was time. Her body has been enduring that CGMS forever. Almost five years of extra pokes and holes and scars and rashes and peeling tape…. Read More

I’m tired of diabetes. A RANT
(disclaimer~ No, I don’t feel this way every day, and no I’m not depressed or in need of therapy. lol Some days it just gets under my skin and I need to let it out.)  I’m tired of diabetes today.  I’m tired of fear. I’m tired of being tired ALL the time. I’m tired of alarms and numbers… Read More

An unexpected and tragic loss.
In the days after I blogged about my father (on father’s day) I felt terribly guilty for not mentioning the man who had heroically filled his shoes for most of my life. The man who had married my mom and taken on three step-children without hesitation. The man who finally brought stability to our… Read More

Remembering my father this Father’s Day
My dad, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a child, died just before my 5th birthday. He wasn’t healthy by the time he was in his late 20’s, and when he caught an aggressive staph infection one winter, he simply could not fight it. He was 30 when he died.  In the years following his… Read More

An update~ EEG’s, MRI’s & Diaversaries. What a week.
We had a mostly drama free and successful trip to Houston this week. We stayed right across the street from the hospital, which was great for the 7am test arrivals. Downtown Houston traffic is not something a stressed out mama needs to deal with at 5am! Trust me! We also had to keep Emma up most of… Read More

Seeking Serentiy…
Part 1  We all know the prayer. I never used to give it much thought, but it runs through my head a lot these days. I consider myself pretty courageous. I fight hard when I need to, even if I’m terrified, and I’m willing to do whatever it takes to “change the things I can,” especially when it… Read More

The Dance
Each time I look at this picture of my little girl that old Garth Brooks song plays in my mind. “Our lives are better left to chance. I could’ve missed the pain, but I’d of had to miss the dance.”   So many emotions wrapped up in a snapshot.  The past six years have been filled with… Read More

A little peek into my Sweet shop!
Have you ever wondered where Too Sweet pump pouches are “deliciously handmade?” I actually make each and every one of them right here in my little sewing studio. From printing the order, to pulling the fabrics, then cutting the patterns, choosing the trims, stabilizing, steaming, sewing,… Read More
