Well, wow it is now December and X-MAS is just around the corner. I hope every one is enjoying the holidays.
We are, Mattie left on 11-20 to see her dad in Texas... Yep, I cried when she left on the plane..
She did good though, she tested before she got on and was 176.. PERFECT for flying. Then when she got off she was 218... not too bad.
Mattie spent a week with her dad and step mom and three little sisters. Lots of fun and playing. They did OK with her blood sugars, I feel that her step mom just doesn't think its a big deal.
On Thanksgiving Day Mattie feel off a GO Cart.. (Mattie is clumsy) and she fractured her wrist. Her dad called and told me, and I explained to him that she will spill Ketones and have high sugars. he said " well she is already been way high, so it will be OK"
Then her step mom said "why are you having all these highs"
Mattie said " well, anytime I have trauma to my body my sugars spike"
her step mom says " Mattie, your fracture has nothing to do with your blood sugars"
REALLY???? and you would know this HOW? UUUMMM HELLO!!!
It drives me absolutely BATTY when people say things like this. They do not do nor KNOW the things Mattie and I do. Mattie is SO AMAZING, and so smart.. she counts her own carbs, she has given her self her own shots since she was 6... she KNOWS how her body is acting, and what it will do.
Oh, well.. it's over and done with. One day I will get my chance to explain to them.
Mattie came home on 11-26 and I have her blood sugars back down to normal and things are going pretty good for her. I have to take her back in to have her wrist looked at.. I should have asked her dad to get me the paper work and x-rays... but, DUH I forgot.
It is still pretty swollen and sore, so we will check it out.
I want more than anything for Mattie to have a relationship with her dad and his family, but I don't want to share at the same time. UUGHHH
Other than that, we are doing good and getting ready for Santa to come to our house... and Santa is behind schedule... as always.
