I've got a few daily photo posts to catch up on, but want to take a moment to acknowledge the day. Hoping everyone had a safe and healthy WDD2018.

MakeDiabetesVisible, days 5, 6, and 7

The last few days have been busy! Baby and I have been out to all sorts of appointments this week. Methinks a carb ratio change is in order, as breakfast left me low and unable to drive for 3 days this week.

Baby and I sit on the stairs,  waiting for blood sugar to rise so I can drive.

Sitting on the stairs, waiting for bg

So we sit, patiently waiting for the juice to kick in.

MakeDiabetesVisible 2018, day 4

It's late and I'm tired, so have a #bgnow, courtesy of my METER BG NOW alarm:

Glucometer showing a bg of 12.

A little high, but I'll take it. Not a bad bg for 2am.

Good enough for overnight

#MakeDiabetesVisible 2018, day 3

A little bit late, but here's today's photo. I found this when changing my infusion site. I guess this explains why it hurt to bolus...

Ouch :-S

#MakeDiabetesVisible 2018, day 2

Today's photo is about hopefully learning from yesterday's not-bolusing mistakes:

Pan of brownies in the oven, with 3 minutes left on the timer

Mmmm, brownies

That, in case you can't tell, is a new batch of brownies that are alllllmost done. I promised myself I'll remember to pre-bolus this time ;-).

#MakeDiabetesVisible 2018, day 1

Today is the first day of November, Diabetes Month. To highlight the ups and downs (lol) of living with diabetes, I'm participating in the daily photo challenge. Check out http://makediabetesvisible.com/ for more info.

For day 1:

Husband and I went out for a wonderful dinner at a friend's place. I bolused for dinner, everything was fine... then came dessert. Forgetting to bolus for a dessert brownie left me here:
