November 14th is National Diabetes Awareness Day

Each day Jilli gets...

4 blood sugar checks via finger pokes before every meal and then at bedtime. She gets 2 insulin injections every morning of 3 different types of insulins and sometimes one at lunch and one at dinner, depending on her blood sugar levels. Eveything she eats must be monitored and carefully chosen. Carb counting is the new math in our family.

Yet through it all, she's one of the happiest toddlers I know and always has a smile on her face. Even when it's "b00-boo" time, which is BSL check time/finger poke time.
We are so proud of you baby girl. We admire your strength and courage for all you must endure at your young age. We love you so very much!!!
