Fun with Diabetes

Dear Reader,

So this month’s Diabetes Blog Carnival is on laughing at the disease. We do try to make some fun out of this not fun situation. My daughter’s 8 year anniversary of her diagnosis is coming up in October. I don’t know what we will do this year, but usually we try to mark the occasion in some way. Once I made a cake in the shape of her pump. The first couple of years that anniversary depressed me. Now I see it more as a celebration of her life. October 26, 2003, was the day we didn’t lose her. And after another year, we still haven’t. That’s good news.

But back to the humor, one way we try to make D fun is just to guess the numbers. Especially after bedtime when she calls from upstairs, “I feel low. Can you check me?”

I will call her to “come on down.” Which of course reminds me of the Price is Right. So we will play “the Blood Sugar Number is Right.” Closest guess without going over wins. The prize . . .  you guessed it . .  . usually glucose tabs.
