Pay it forward Spokane

 
PAY IT FORWARD- Yesterday I was in a meeting downtown and I knew I only had 2 hrs on the meter but I didn't want to miss any important information or the opportunity to speak to some key decision makers after the seminar. So after my meter had long expired I see the ticket guy in this little car with lights blaring and he's got a ticket on my car, yet as I glance at the meter it's got 11 min left.... I tried to talk my way out of it explaining my situation and the guy said, Well it's your lucky day, see that lady down there, she put money in your meter as I was writing the ticket, he then grabbed the ticket off my windshield and said I don't normally do this. I profusely apologized and thanked him as he walked away on to the next ticket. So I was able to thank the nice lady for putting $ in the meter and for this I say PAY IT FORWARD TODAY, this week, or this month. Have a great Thursday.

How did you know your child had diabetes? Know The Symptoms (It Could Save a Life)

How did you know your child had Type 1 diabetes? Parents of children with diabetes will hear this question asked a million times. And each time you tell your story the story gets shorter and shorter. You begin to leave out details. Details that may one day save another child's life. I wrote this for a couple of reasons. The first reason was to document the details and help other families who are searching for answers to unexplained symptoms. The second reason was to really get my emotions off my chest, and reflect.

December 30, 2016 is a day I will never forget.  This date will now be forever know to us as Carter's "dia-versary."This was the day my seven year old son Carter was diagnosed with Type one Diabetes. I still tear up when I say or even write those words... my son was diagnosed with T1D. It all kind of happened so fast really. It was Christmas break 2016 and the kids were home for a couple of weeks. Things were normal as usual, stress right before a holiday,…

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?

Basal or Bolus. What's the difference?
Where did the term basal and bolus come from? Furthermore, what the heck is the difference?
Being new to diabetes you start to hear new terms that you're unfamiliar with like basal and bolus but the basal we're talking about isn't the kind you cook with (that's basil). 
If you're like me, you kind of feel stupid asking the question because everybody around you seems to know the difference between basal and bolus. You may hear a nurse or doctor say things like "I think we just need to increase your basal." And I'm thinking... which one is that, because I'm looking at NovoLog and Levemir? You don't ask the question but you keep picking up on clues of what this may mean.
I'm going to make it simple for you. Basal and bolus are exactly the same thing, but different. Ok, not so simple. Basal and bolus are terms used for insulin injections. The basal is the long acting insulin that is "always" run…

Happy Mother's Day!
