Humorous Tidbits from 2012
The diagnosis of diabetes changes you and your family forever. However, in between the challenges of caring for diabetes come amusing moments that remind us of the important things in our lives, like our families and laughing.
Our eight-year-old son started an insulin pump trial period. On our way home he pulled it out of his pocket and was looking at it when he said, "I wish this were an iPump!"
Conversation overheard between my daughter and her dad:
Daughter: Hi Daddy! Dad: Hey baby! How are you doing? Daughter: In life or in numbers?
When I explained to my 5 year old daughter that we probably shouldn't inject in her tummy too often as it would make her tummy not so pretty, she replied (in all her innocence) "What, like yours, mummy?"
My two sons, ages 9 and 7, share a bedroom. The 9 year old is a type 1 diabetic. As usual, I did the 2 a.m. BG test. I found him to be 97 so I ran downstairs to get some juice. While I was busy prodding and pushing him to get awake to drink it, I realized my boys had - for fun - switched beds for the nights and I was testing the child without diabetes and trying to give him juice! Thankfully, as bleary-eyed as I was, I figured it out :)
