Excitement #1: tomorrow I have an appointment to start up my CGM. Fingers crossed that it will help to give me some insight with when my afternoon lows start so I can figure out the correct basal. I live alone so night time lows can be really nerve racking and I hope it will help me to wake up before I get to looooooooooooooow.
Excitement #2: right after my cgm appointment I am driving down to Maryland with my mom and oldest niece to visit with my brother for Easter and vacation week. Really glad to get away from my students for a week, love them very much but they are all getting sick (ugh, germs).
This leads me to Diacrap: The last time I went to visit my brother I took my suitcase, pocketbook, and pillow. This time around I have had to add a backpack full of site changes, extra batteries, cgm stuff, extra test stripes, my extra meter, syringes, pen needles, sweet tarts encase I go low etc.... I will add an extra vial of Humalog before I leave the house tomorrow and a Lantus pen encase of pump issues. I sure hope we have room in the car for everything or I might have to strap my niece to the top of the car (hehe).
Sadness: I was going to meet up with pup when I was down in MD...... missing her a lot right now......
