On the Jada front, she's doing great! We've had a few crazy moments over the last week. On Tuesday, we went to Sam's to stock up on groceries and decided to have lunch there. I had checked her about an hour before and she was in the 170's, so I hadn't been concerned about a nose dive. Right before we got in line, I checked her and she was 24! And once again- walking around like nothing was wrong. Over the last two weeks her insulin to carb ratio has gone from 1:10 to 1:15 and then to 1:18 and still having problems with some lows. I'm wondering if our eating schedule has something to do with it- but our schedule hasn't been horribly off either. We'll see as we get into a more normal routine this week.
I've got an awesome recommendation for a doctor! He's local- not an endocrinologist (have to go to Anchorage for an endo), but LOTS of experience with Type 1. Three of his children have Type 1 Diabetes and he's the director of the Diabetes Clinic. I've heard great things about him and am excited to meet him.
I've left Jada twice in childcare for church events this last week. One was for the women's Bible study and the other was for "Queen for a Day" (a spa event held yesterday to celebrate Mother's Day). David was an AWESOME big brother both times and helped me out by checking her blood sugar at some specific times and then calling me with the numbers. I was a little nervous about leaving her because the child care location is about a 5 minute drive from our friend's house where both events were held, but David rose to the occasion and I had no need for worry. She was away from me for four hours and NO problems at all!
Ahh....Queen for a Day. Food, massages, facials, pedicures, manicures, friends and no interruptions. Our church puts this event on every year for Mother's Day and it is absolutely amazing- and you don't have to be a mom to come- just a woman! :) I met new people and had a good chance to sit and visit with old friends. It was like the ultimate girl hang out time. Already looking forward to next year.
We are starting to get settled in our house. I will post some pictures just as soon as I can find my USB cord!! I had it with me the whole trip up here and as soon as we moved in to the house I lost it! grrr.... We still need a kitchen table and will be getting a sofa and love seat this week. We have folding chairs and a Cracker Barrel rocking chair to sit on currently! :)
Well- this is just the beginning of getting caught up on my blogging. I've been tagged twice the last couple of days and don't worry ladies- I'll do them! :)
Oh-and last but not least- Happy Mother's Day!
