2014 In Review

Another crazy year for the Ortiz Family!  It started off with some crazy blood sugars (which came and went throughout the year) 020914_1953_Roughnights9.jpgSadly all that red seems to happen at least a couple times a month (if not more often).  It feels like we finally get his ratios and basals figured out and then something causes them to change: growth spurt, hormones, stress, exercise, wind change…  But we had fun despite the crazy blood sugars!

We got to play in the snow earlier this year too!   Marys Iphone February 2014 653 It was so much fun, and brought on its own blood sugar challenges. Marys Iphone February 2014 663 But we were ready for those!  🙂  I am waiting and hoping for some snow now….but don’t see it in our forecast.  I think this winter we might have to go find the snow if it doesn’t come to us!
