Snow Ice Cream
For the past 2 1/2 years, 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk have haunted me from the top shelf of my pantry.  You see, those 2 cans were bought before Seth's diagnosis, when we thought he had mono.  He was losing weight and we were making shakes trying to ...

New Year, Fresh Start
I've been absent from blogging for a while, and today seems like a great day to get back to it! First and foremost - Seth was featured in the blog Happy Medium last Monday!  Stephen is doing a series of blog posts about Champion Athletes with Diabetes.  You...

This post isn't about diabetes, just so you know. I met you in the summer of 2007. I fed you, and you were mine.  Jason says it was like feeding a stray puppy.  You were a big brother to my boys, and a little brother t...

Show Me Your Pump
Most of the time, Seth and Jason don't care about their Dexcom sensor showing.  In the summer, they both work as lifeguards (Jason is a pool manager in the summer) so their sensor is pretty much always showing.  The questions are pretty much nonstop at the ...

Sugar Surfing with Dr. Ponder
Last Saturday, we attended a Sugar Surfing seminar with Dr. Ponder.  It was wonderful!  So many things to learn!  I tried to take notes, but there was so much information.  I can't wait for his book to come out so that I'll have the information in front of ...

Trying Dex
I decided to try Dex for a week.  I was using an old transmitter and receiver, so the first few days of my data isn't stellar (lots of gaps).  Even though I was only getting sporadic readings, the data was fascinating  enough that I decided to leave it on f...
