Cadence wearing her sample Omnipod

A little bit of everything

When I started blogging back in July I thought I would blog something every day...boy was I wrong. Since I started this life has been a whirlwind of ups and downs. It started out with my friend loosing her 21 year old son, then Blake's grandpa passed. I decided to go back to work applied for several jobs on Monday August 7 got a call that day for an interview the next morning that afternoon they called and ask if I could the next day. So I had to find a sitter for Sweet and Sassy that I could trust and know how to take of her. I was pretty lucky I had a few in mind that I was given names of . The first person I called was the one. Her daughter has Celiacs Disease so she was very understanding that of reading labels and measuring food out. Thank goodness she was able to take her at the last minute.

Then we had our 3 month endo appt it went great...we are now going to start pumping with Omnipod super excited about this change. Sweet and Sassy wore a sample Omnipod prior to our appt. We go Sept 17 for our pump class then go from there. Lots of good things I hear about the Omnipod.

Then school started...all went well no complaints here. The nurse is wonderful with her. I never feel like she is not taken care of. The nurse will text me all her numbers througout the day or if she has any questions about anything! LOVE LOVE LOVE

Then over Labor Day weekend I took my 1st trip without Sweet and Sassy since she was diagnosed. Blake and I went to Florida to pack up his granparents place and drive their car back. The getaway was great but I worried the whole time I was gone. Thanks to Misty over at Life Is Like a Box of Chocolate's for being on call all weekend if needed. My mom did have to call her just for reassurance. Sweet and Sassy then went to stay with her dad on Friday evening let me just say this was not what I expected.
Her dad just dont get it sometimes he gave her donuts every morning for breakfast and pizza every evening for dinner....WHAT WAS HE THINKING!!!!! Do not get me wrong I do let her have those types of food but not everyday.

Well with all this I am going to try harder to at least blog once a week from now on...we will see how this goes. I truly love doing this and reading others blogs well. Hope everyone has a great weekend.
