The kittens love the snow while the adult cats are inside curled up by the wood stove! l**o stripes here is digging into the snow and pulling out snowballs and trying to bat them to his sister. don’t worry the kittens don’t stay out long.
If i held onto every failure or bad decision i’ve ever made in my life,i’d hate myself.learn from your failures,and then let them go ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Byta plåster idag till pumpen. vi föredrar att göra "egna bedövningsplåster", det finns färdiga emla plåster som man bara kan sätta direkt på huden. men vi gör egna så vi kan bestämma hur stor det ska vara och så. det fungerar bra, bara att man måste ha med sig lite extra grejer när man åker iväg.
natten var okej, lite hög till en början men korrigerade ner alice och det höll sig hela natten. nu är det dags för godis snart men nu är alice såklart hög så nu när vi bytt nålen hoppas jag hon går ner snart. precis varit ute och cyklat så väntar med spänning 😂

I’m not sure who wrote this but it’s circulating around social media and it really hit home. i wish i could give credit to the person, if you know them please thank them!!! this brought tears to eyes..... and it applies to moms dads grandparents etc!!! dear mom of a t1d,
you don’t have to be strong all the time. i know that’s the lie we tell ourselves; the lie that society puts on us. we feel like if we’re not strong, how are we to expect our t1 to be strong? we have to show them how to be brave, right? how to persevere? yes, this is true, but there are many other things we need to show them how to be, as well.
our oldest son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes just a month after his second birthday. i remember that day like it was yesterday. all the doctors, nurses, blood draws, hospital beds, the overwhelming amount of information being thrown at us and that first whiff of synthetic insulin. that’s a smell you never forget.
i also remember the wave of emotions i felt that day; fear, anger, frustration, confusion, sadness. my child was just diagnosed with a life altering, life threatening disease and there is no cure.
you’re only in that hospital room for a short time, you’re given way too much information on what your life will look like now and then you’re thrown back into the real world. in that moment you have no choice but to be strong. you have to leave all those emotions behind with your previous life, put your head down and survive; literally. you are now your child’s pancreas. you now have to make small decisions all day, everyday to keep your child alive. decisions that will make or break his/her health. one innocent mistake can cost your child their life.
that’s a lot of pressure to carry around with you all the time. it’s easy to understand why we feel the need to check our emotions at the door. we don’t have time to feel, we have to focus...... will post rest in comments trust me it’s worth the read!!!!!
