Let them eat cake!

I know, the quote refers to bread but I’m talking about cake.

My husband was visiting relatives last week. I stayed home with the continuing (…) renovation.

While there, he purchased one of my favorite cakes at a local grocery store to bring home.

A relatives’s husband, a family practice physician, asked,

“Can she eat that?”

M explained that I would definitely eat that, with insulin, and then keep an eye on my Dexcom to make sure all was good.

The physician didn’t know what a CGMS is.

I’ll give him credit. With info from M he went straight to the computer to learn about it.

A couple of years ago, I showed him the first pump he’d ever seen. I also sent him info on LADA, Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults, which he knew nothing about at that time.


Oh, the cake.

1/12 of the cake is 47 carbs. And, yes, 1/12 is a very skinny piece of cake, but it’s yummy.

  1. If only you could see how I sighed and rolled my eyes when I read “Can she eat that”. I imagine you did the same upon hearing it.

  2. Can she eat that – my favorite. It does look good! Just think you can enjoy it for 12 days – except it probably doesn’t last that well for 12 days.

  3. Oh that cake looks soooooo good! I’m glad you went ahead and had a piece, I probably would have had more than one…..but the extra “work” would so be worth it!!
