Diabetes Update


We had a HECK of a week ~ numbers are in control ?? BUT,,,, with exercise we had a lot of lows.... The diabetes nurse recommended adding more fat to the diet at night AND sipping on small amounts of Gatorade during playtime... The Gatorade thing is a little bit hard to manage : 4oz per hour for regular play..8oz per hour for real exercise swim,shovel/sled,rollerblading,etc .. Little kids don't want to drink 1 to 2 oz every 15min . BUT I told her we'd try ,SO, we're doing it and sooo far its ummmm, ok... ha!! Also she recommended ice cream before bed to keep him from dropping off at 12-4:am (UGH...). ALL in ALL , its worth it to fight the good fight ! So, I'm gonna need a little sleep ~ ya think? Its way to late to be up on the computer... I haven't been bloggin' much lately because I had the "FinePleasure" of experiencing some cracked ribs and muscle trauma over last weekend.. All because I wanted my damn hair to look straight and silky LOL! Oil sprays and tile DON'T mix..nope...they don't! ~ buyer beware
