A Happy and Blessed Easter!

He is Risen!  Happy Easter to everyone!  It is not going to be a warm day in Northern NY but it will be warm inside at WORK!  Staffing is taking advantage of it being a holiday weekend and pulling me to work on a unit doing personal care.  Thats ok.  I got to choose where I would be today.  I just hope I'm off next Easter.  If not, I will take it off! 

The kids are pleased with their Easter baskets and are playing the new video games they got.  Sarah did get a little bit of candy.  Funny, the sugar free candy has almost as much carbs as some regular candy. 

Yesterday, Sarah's grandmother lost Sarah's insulin kit at the mall.  No one turned it in.  I bet some teens picked it up and saw what it was and threw it in a trash can.  I had to make up a new one.  I don't have an insulin pen for her, so I have to draw it up by hand.  I will call the Dr. office Monday and see if I can get a new pen.  We are due to go visit on the 7th, but maybe they can mail me a new script by then.  Sarah's grandmother is a nervous wreck about the needles and syringe.  She shows fear in front of Sarah and makes her nervous.  I need to tell her to stop and project confidence.  If she even wants to go in the other room to draw up the needle.  I can't wait until Sarah gets the pump.  Of course that will be a whole new problem for the grandmother to learn.  All she needs to learn is what buttons to push really. 

I hope everyone has a nice Easter...  Linda

Happy Easter Linda! I hope you/kids have a good day!!

I didn't know Sarah had diabetes; I agree, her grandmother has to "take charge" and not be afraid to handle the care required for it. Maybe she can get some education through a diabetic educator through your doctor (if she hasn't already); just a thought

enjoy the day; sometimes its nice to work on holidays; sometimes people are kinder on them

betty

Happy Easter to you and your children also Linda. To bad the grandmother is scared to give Sarah her meds. That is a shame that she lost the kit. I hope your patients are good today. Hugs, Helen

I hope work went well Linda. I'm sure Sarah's grandmother feels awful about the loss of the syringes. Happy Easter! Jeannette xx

Hope you had a good one.  I had a dinner to go to and my son was here and didn't get journal reading in.  
I didn't know Sarah was diabetic (??)  Are you diabetic also?  How did that escape me? I've been reading your journal since...Sept. or Oct??

hugs,  Bethe
