We began to prepare for our weekend away...
Spare clothes for when the first set gets wet in the snow?
Test strips, ketone strips, alcohol swabs, spare pump, batteries, and infusion sets for every day we will be gone?
Insulin and cartridges? Oops, insulin is old and the other bottle is empty. Make sure to grab a new bottle. Actually grab two.
One could freeze. Get two.
Soon we hopped in the truck and did the head count--two adults? Yep. Two kids? Yep. Three dogs? Yep and we were off! A weekend of snowmobiling, relaxing, some snowboarding, and possibly a drink or two.
