Why I Love Living In Liberty Lake, WA

Lots of people can tell you they love their neighborhood. But can they tell you why and convince you to move there? I don't think many folks can do that, unless you live in Liberty Lake, WA. I've lived in Washington my entire life and I've never quite found a city like Liberty Lake.  

I LOVE living in Liberty Lake, WA. We have everything we need within a short distance including: The Home Depot, Walgreens, Albertsons, Starbucks, post office, library, Liberty Lake Athletic Club, churches, our own winery (, multiple parks, playgrounds, walking tails and restaurants (The Cork House & Hay Jay's are two personal favorites). We even have our own newspaper The Liberty Lake Splash to keep us up to date on all the events in our area. And to top it all off Liberty Lake was voted the 8th safest city in WA . Here are just a few of the community events that make Liberty Lake special for me and my family.

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!

I hope you are having a wonderful Mother's Day!!
