I had a nice visit with an old friend I haven’t seen in years. We spent the day with our kids at the aquarium and on the waterfront.
It was kind of difficult talking and keeping the conversation flowing with 3 kids to distract us, but it was lots of fun!
TJ has impressed me with how proud he is of his insulin pump. He showed it to my friend and her son (a 7 year old). TJ’s “new friend” was very curious about TJ’s diabetes, he’d never heard of it before and I tried to explain it to him. And he talked to TJ about how he can’t just eat whatever whenever either, because he has a severe peanut allergy.
The most frustrating part of the day was TJ’s inability to eat his food in a reasonable amount of time. I don’t know how to get this kid to eat! Even his favorite foods (hot dogs) are not quick eats. L Which means no insulin until his sugars are reacting to his food and TJ’s sugars skyrocketing before the insulin works.
Tony and I tried to does him before he ate the day before but then he suddenly becomes, “not hungry” despite the fact that he had just told us he would eat it! Then we worry about his sugars crashing! There is no way to win here.
Luckily his sugars were ok during the visit. J No crashes, or major spikes despite his crazy eating (or lack thereof).
Oh, and on a side note: Gabriel is really crawling now!
