THE STORY OF ONE FAMILY'S JOURNEY WITH TYPE 1 DIABETES AND CELIAC DISEASE.

I probably shouldn't blog on Mondays.

You see, after manning the kids, the home, the dinner table, and everything in between, I have a "real job" that requires my time and attention 3 evenings a week.  I work from home, and sometimes there isn't much of an opportunity to transition from one role to the next.  On Thursday evenings, I'm usually trying to balance the entire charade for a little while, because my husband doesn't get home until after my shift begins.

At any rate, I work on the weekends, because Mr. Rose is here to help with the kids.  By the time Monday morning rolls around, I'm beat!  Late to bed...but life keeps moving...a blood sugar check when I get off work around midnight will determine how much sleep I can hope for, and the sun still rises eventually -- no matter that I'm exhausted.  My hardworking husband leaves around 5 am, and doesn't get home until 6:30 (or later) in the evenings, so tired or not, I still have to get up to prepare breakfast, count carbs and manage those three little rascals darlings of mine.

The past 2 weeks have been a whirlwind of activity as we prepared for the rapture end of the school year.  I've noticed things starting to get a little rocky on the numbers front.
Up.  Down.  Up.  Down.  Not really a specific pattern....just a bunch of sporadic information that leaves us troubleshooting one number after another -- never being sure of what is REALLY going on.

I started tweaking.  And waiting.  And tweaking.  And waiting.

And, yesterday, she woke up over 200.

Blech.

Just as I was sure that I was NEVER going to get it right, her numbers started looking better. She hovered around 130 all day yesterday.

And now it's Tuesday!

IT'S TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!  No longer Monday, I'm feeling hopeful that the end of our rocky patch could be in sight.  (Just in time for her endo appointment next week, btw.  Why does that always happen?)

It's still too soon to tell.

But, in the meantime, thank goodness for Tuesdays!

  5. Awesome post Wendy! I love your sense of humor. Sometimes you do everything right, and you still end up with a wonky number. Good luck!

  7. Oh boy, I can relate to the trying to balance things with work and house and kids, etc. I work from home too and now with the girls out of school for the summer it's gotten pretty hairy around here...can't wait for the start of summer camp for my little one so I can get some quite for the better part of the day again.

    Hope those good numbers stick around for you!!! We're experiencing a bit of glucocoaster around here right now since the start of summer vaca!
