With the diabetes we have decided it would be too much to ask anyone to watch our kids while both Jeremy and I went to Girl's Camp. So Jeremy had to ask them to reconsider having him go to which they fully agreed. It was hard for him, he felt that he was letting some one down, but had no doubt that he needs to be at close to home. Jeremy will be able to work but be home to give shots and calculate carbs. Bev, Jer's Mom will be with the kids while he is at work.
We have been so blessed with supportive friends and family. I cannot explain how fortunate I feel to be surrounded by so many people who love me and my family. There is never a doubt we will be taken care of always.
One of the questions that I get asked a lot is "How are you doing?" Very few people get a response from me with tears in my eyes, but a few have seen it. My response is typically "Good." I mean honestly it sucks! but what are we going to do? It isn't devastating, or terminal it is a weird form of vitamins to make your body work properly. I always want the dominant emotion in my house to be joy, laughter, peace, comfort. This is a time that I can make that happen or be sad and angry. I choose to find the joy in it...I mean I am sure there is some sort of college grant for people with type 1 diabetes right? I have been able to use some creative juices (aka emotional therapy) to decorate their glucose meter cases so we can tell them apart. I learned that Lauren only likes "alphabet letters not cursive letters" as she cried herself to sleep because she was not happy with the cursive L.
