I am so happy to report that Ashlee's A1C was 8.5 ... never thought I'd be happy with 8.5 but after the 10.5 in July this is a huge improvement! My Mom's was 6.5 ...good for her ... she has finally learned not to cheat! Wish I COULD!

HR is STILL so much of my daily (and nightly) thoughts's crazy! Little Romeo has slipped into total separation anxiety melt-down mode! I can't go to the mailbox without him crying ... I thought he was completely over that stage of his life .. but either my energy ABOUT H or he misses his bully-buddy, H, OR he really thinks he's alone now ...I don't know what ??? but we'll figure it out!

I have actually been thinking of calling the Breeder who Lisa and Michael got HR from. (SHHHH...don't tell Bill!) It goes against everything I believe should be done for all the HOMELESS dogs in the shelter ! I just miss H so much ...I want a part of him back, even if it's a distant cousin! Don't worry I just WON'T buy from a breeder ...but I can think about it!

11-23-2011 ...this has been sitting in a "draft" file for over a month ... now I can't remember what I was going to add...

Heavy sigh............................

The little darlings' A1C level is 10.5
(It was 8.5 previously)

Nothing to do or say ... those Moms' out in the DOC understand .... no one else does ... not even the darling daughter, the D-Mom in this case.

I had to say goodbye to HR .... my beloved Tibetian Terrier! Kiss Miss Chloe for me, H !

it's been a long time .....

I haven't updated this blog for some time now .... however, I still check the blogs I follow (all the Darling D-Moms and such) whenever I get a chance.

Diabetes is depressing! I get alot of chuckles from some of your antics ... up's and down's, HIGH's and LOW's! Lord, I pray daily for the comic relief I get from some of you girls! I cry alot, too. NOT an hour of my day (and sometimes in my sleep) DIABETES creeps in. I want it to be over... cured... no more! I want a cure for my Darling little 7 year old Ashlee ... and for my Mom and for ALL the T1's young, old and every age in-between!

We rescued a cat ... and several months into our "ownership" (if anyone ever really owns a cat), Baby Leeza, short for Condoleeza, became constipated (I thought) ... after a week of lethargy I took her to the Vet. She had DIABETES! It pains me to say she had to be put to sleep ... she was unable to deal with the shots and would hide from us to avoid the needle ... and the illness took over. Then, when our little G-daughter was diagnosed, my mind kept creeping back to poor Condoleeza Kitty .... if a CAT can't deal with daily injections and wants to run-a-way from home to avoid them ... what is going through a six-year-olds mind??? Ashlee, too, HATES the pokes from testing and shots. Will she, one day, run away from it all? Will she give up on her diabetes? Will she be able to live a normal life, grow up and have children? My brain is in hyper-drive today ...with diabetes shifting my gears, our whole family is "diabetes dysfunctional" I'm afraid, with everyone ...including D-child's Mom & Pop ...just letting it "ride"! The "ME" generation at it's finest.

You know ... somedays you're better off just staying in bed! Today is one of those days!
