Mom Wants A Diabetes Cure

Cue The Lone Ranger Theme Song....

  • Get call from Jeff while I'm unloading groceries saying go to school because Brendon is in the 590's and needs a new infusion set.
  • I feel bad because I never bring my cell phone anywhere with me, so nurse had to resort to contacting Jeff.
  • Grab new tubing to replace what was ripped out of cartridge while he played catch during recess.
  • Vow to be more organized and less forgetful and make bringing my cell phone with me high priority from here on out.
  • Show school nurse how to hook up tubing and load cartridge.
  • Ask about her giving him a shot of insulin. Looking good.
  • He's coming down, but not quickly.
  • Go home, unload and unpack groceries...thank gawd it's a COLD SPRING HERE IN NH because the perishables haven't perished in the garage.
  • Pick up Jacob at preschool.
  • Get call saying meter reads HI. Bolus isn't working. Will pick up Brendon at school. Can't wait for him to come home on bus.
  • Pick up Brendon and Jessica, drive home wait for kids to fight through getting mail out of mailbox.
  • Hurry inside to set up set change.
  • Brendon has to pee...of course.
  • Comes in and takes sweet, slow as molasses time dropping his drawers.
  • Mini-argument over where to place infusion set.
  • Mom wins....of course ;)
  • Change set.
  • Voila! All done.
  • Frig an A (whatever that Grease quote means).


  • Like the saying goes, "When it rains, it pours."

    That's how it always goes - things like that never happen at a convenient time.

    I'm glad you got him all squared away though :)

    I've left my cell phone at home too - or not had it charged (I'm actually more guilty of that than anything). But you still saved the day (lone ranger!).

  • It's amazing when you realize how much you do in a day when you write it all down, isn't it? Your day wore me out just reading about it. Hope he comes down soon.

    Now sit down & relax a bit. You deserve it.

  • This post is proof that a mother's work is never done...that mothers just don't get paid enough...that I'm not man enough to ever be a woman.
