Kitty Love

Doesn't that make you want to just curl right up with them?  This is Sarah and Tiger sleeping on the bed together last night.  Notice how Tiger's paw is wrapped around her head.  He really is a cuddly cat at times.  Sarah had her first day back to school today after her diagnosis.  She did pretty good except for having low blood sugar right before lunch.  She bounced right back up however.  She got a little cranky tonight after getting her Lantus shot.  That is the longer acting one she gets at night.  The needle is a little bigger and ouchier.  I feel so terrible having to do this to her, but its life or death now.  No putting it off or forgetting about it for a couple days.  I am not the type to sit around and say Woe is me, why did this happen to us?  It is happening to us too, not just Sarah.  My whole life is revolving around the diabetes right now.  Its the first thing that I begin the day with and the last thing before I go to bed.  I did get a couple hours off today and I went out and placed a geocache.  I'm hoping it will be approved and out by tomorrow for people to start finding.  It is a nice, easy one in a local town park.  There are 2 more town parks in the town of Greenfield without caches, I intend to take care of that!  One park is so new that there is only a parking lot, I'm not even sure if its officially open yet.  I kind of wanted to set up a multi cache in it.  That is a geocache with stages.  You go from stage to stage gathering clues and then you go to the final.  Well, I'm tuckered out and ready for bed.  Goodnite all...

How precious!  It's good you are taking Sarah's condition seriously.  But I'm sure in time you will both take forgranted this is just how it is and things won't be as nerve wrecking.  -  Barbara

Awww. how sweet. I am glad that her meds are doing their job. Poor thing, I know the larger jab hurts. Good luck to both of you on this journey. Helen

Dear Linda,

That is an adorable picture of Sarah and Tiger.  That reminds me of Soapy (my oldest cat) when he was a kitten.  He was a very cuddly cat, and adored sleeping by my side on my bed.  He no longer does it since we had Chewie.  I miss that...

Very sweet picture of those two sleeping together. They look very warm and cozy. :) I hope her days of adjustment to this will all become easier.

They look sooooo adorable! I'm glad too hear that Sarah's back to school day was good. Although I am a type 2 diabetic, I cannot imagine what Sarah and you must be going through daily. It's so new for the both of you. It sounds like your still running off adrenelin (sp?) bless your heart.

I am praying that you will slow down a bit and let it all just soak in. Maybe find a support group for you and Sarah to join. That way you could get support from other Mom's and Sarah could see that she's not the only one that has to deal with this and the needles.

What ever you decided to do just know we are all here to support you and pray for you and Sarah Ü.

HUGS~Donna
