Six months. It has been six months since Medium was diagnosed with type I diabetes. (Well actually, it’s been almost 7 months now).
But six months is apparently the magic number for me. I am finally at the point where I don’t think about Medium’s diabetes minute to minute or hour to hour. After six months I guess I realize that we do know what we’re doing and, to some degree anyway, we can predict what his body is going to do. I haven’t been blogging much lately. Mostly because I’m busy, but it turns out I just don’t have very much to say lately, at least as far as diabetes goes.
Things here at home have been pretty status quo.
Medium’s numbers have been okay, more on the high side, but we have things under control. We had his three-month endocrine appointment the other day and they agreed that he is coming out of his honeymoon phase. We made some adjustments and I think things are going to be fine.
He started school this week too. His teacher seems nice, although she seems a little nervous about the diabetes. But I think she’s going to be great and I think she will pay really close attention and make sure that Medium is okay while he’s in class.
And of course our school nurse is there and she is awesome and everything is running smoothly.
My brother and his family just moved here from Ohio and they have three boys around the same ages as my boys, so Medium is loving getting to spend so much time with his cousins.
My husband and I have even stopped getting up at 3 AM to check his blood sugar. We do a midnight check and if one of us wakes up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom or something we will check him but we are no longer setting our alarm for 3 AM.
Right now things are just… Normal.
We have our house on the market right now so it’s clean, it’s picked up, its immaculate and that has relieved so much stress for me.
So right now, at this very moment in time, my emotions are in check. I’m not feeling overwhelmed with thoughts that I need to get out in blog posts.
The house is clean, the kids are back in school, and diabetes, for right now anyway, is behaving itself.
I don’t know how long this will last, but I’ll take it!
I’m sure there is some kind of drama lurking around the corner, and I will be able to fill pages and pages of blog posts. But for now I am signing off.
Until the next catastrophe…
