Jilli did an excellent job in her first soccer game. She made it through most of the first half, and was back out, ever so briefly, in the 2nd half. It was so fun to watch this age, 3-5 year olds.
Her sugar levels were fine for the game...with all the running around, we weren't sure what to expect. She let us check her during halftime and all was good. Her coaches are great, of course one of them is her Daddy, and you can tell they were enjoying being out there. We all got a kick out of it. It's going to be a very fun 8 weeks!!

Our chick-fil-a night was a HUGE success. Thank you so much to our family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and all who helped make it an awesome fundraising night. Chick-fil-a went above and beyond - class act fast food right there!! As soon as I get the figures from Chick-fil-a, I'll post what we raised!!
Again - THANK YOU TO ALL!!!!

Just found our insurance company approved Jilli's insulin pump, so we will be working on getting her set up with a tube-free pump, "pod," in the next month. Talk about being excited (because it should help keep her blood sugar levels more stable) and nervous (because we're unfamiliar with it) all at once.
Jilli wore a "fake pod" for 3 days (which is how long she will wear each insulin filled pod before switching to a new one) a couple of months ago so we could see if she would handle wearing it and not try to pull it off. She did excellent with it until it was time to take it off. I just yanked it off, which was very unpleasant for her. However, not to worry, they give us wipes to use that help remove the adhesive so it comes off VERY smoothly and pain free for her.
NO MORE INJECTIONS!!!! Each pod automatically inserts a cannula into the skin via a needle, which will stay inserted, to deliver insulin on a scheduled system and before each meal as needed.
It's going to be a learning curve for us all - but our main goal is to get her blood sugars regulated and take away some of her discomfort with all the injections she currently takes.
We'll keep you posted and until then...Keep those prayers coming!!
