A+

2nd clininc appointment today - the doctor gave our family an A+!

Here are a few things we discussed:

1. When mixing insulin, you have to draw the short acting 1st (NPH) and then the long acting 2nd(Lantus). If you do it the other way around (as I have been) you contaminate the NPH and it becomes uneffective. Oops.

2. Add a vile of a long acting insulin (i.e. Lantus) and syringes to any school emergency kits.

3. ALL SUGARS ARE CREATED EQUAL. Count the Carbs.

4. There is still no cure for type 1 diabetes

5. Nothing can bring a proud tear to your eye like watching your 7 year old give her doctor an injection.

6. Don't worry, the numbers are good. Wait until the "honeymoon" period is over...
