Well, Amanda got to come home late Friday. We have been pretty busy since. She got to play in her last baseball game of the season yesterday. The game was televised too. She will make it to her end of the year party on Wednesday. They are having pizza and cake.
We talked with the endo about
the party. Amanda is allowed one piece of pizza and a very small piece of cake with no icing. She is OK with that. She has been doing well since she came home. She is tolerating the metformin well and her numbers are coming down. Not looking forward to after the party, but she's a kid and the party is important. The doctor said it would be bad if she ate that way all the time, but for the party it was OK. I had managed to keep her blood sugars pretty close to normal before she got admitted with diet. So much so that I think they were doubting me when I told them I thought she had diabetes. At least until they did the glucose tolerance test.
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Shouldn't I be invincible by now?
