This getting older stuff sucks big time.
My friend, Sandy, died this month. She was 51. She died of breast cancer. She was one of the reasons I went to Kansas last month. I wanted to see her before she died. I didn’t think she was going to die the next week. Her husband and daughters are left without their amazing, crazy, loving (I could go on and on…) wife and mom.
Last year, when I was in Kansas, Sandy and I talked and she explained that her doctor told her that the treatment for her breast cancer was similar to treating diabetes. She would not be able to get rid of it, but they hoped they would continue to help her control her cancer, like controlling diabetes. It didn’t quite work that way.
I’ll miss her.
Easter Blood Sugars – stunk. I did not eat ONE Cadbury Egg – no jelly beans – no nothing. We drove to Massachusetts (in the snow/slush/pouring rain) on Saturday in order to be in Attleboro, Massachusetts for my uncle’s 90th birthday. I have never seen so many cars off the road. The weather was dreadful. Sunday, the b’day party, was 78 degrees with sun and a happy Uncle. He was/is amazing! And I ate nothing. About noon I switched the inset – pulled inset was bloody (what, again?) and life (as it is) got better. The left tummy area is definitely not doing so great as a pump site. A 200+ did not make me a happy birthday partier but – life goes on. But – the diabetes part was sucky. Oh well.
