I'm feeling a mixture of emotions tonight - both completely overwhelmed and thankful at the same time. I'd love to feel just CONTENT, but that would be too much to ask for, right?
Stressed about prepping for Thanksgiving at my house, hosting 24 people.
But thankful to have so many friends and family to celebrate with, beautiful weather so we can eat outside, and lots of yummy food.
Had a minor freak-out today when we completely ran out of test strips...even after raiding Adam's lock-down kit at school.
But completely thankful that his 3 month supply from Medco arrived today, the day before a holiday weekend.
Stressed that we are choosing to switch insulin pumps.
But thankful that we are able to CHOOSE and have the ability to switch things up when needed. Did I mention I'm stressed about learning a new system? But I'm excited. And stressed...and excited...and so on.
Overwhelmed that we have a child with diabetes...that we have to make these decisions and it's all on our shoulders.
But thankful for the invention of insulin, pumps, and that Adam can live a healthy, happy life and we can manage it.
So much to do tomorrow...
But really thankful that my mom brought over some wine for Thanksgiving dinner a bit early. Sorry mom...I had to break into it. Good thing the stores are open tomorrow....heee!
I'm also terribly thankful for the DOC. Y'all know who you are, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me through the past year. HUGS...and Happy Thanksgiving!
