Monday: Mothers rule of life.

I will have a short week again. I am taking Tom to Adelaide on Thursday night and he is seeing his Endocrinologist on Friday and the Diabetes educator about getting his pump. We have a date for the pump. He is booked in for the 12Th of November. Only ten weeks to go.

So shopping is going to have to be done on Thursday instead of Friday and Saturday I won't get back till around lunch time so it will be another busy Saturday. I am determined to be organised though so that the trip will not interrupt our family too much and we will still be able to have a family day on Sunday.

We were looking into getting Tom a transmitter that would read his bsl every 5 minutes. I was going to buy the transmitter when we got the pump but have discovered that the sensors cost $725.00 for 10. One last 3 days so a pack of 10 would last us a month. It is way too much. It was a big disappointment for me to discover that we wouldn't be able to have this. I realize though that we are very blessed living here and having doctors medicine and machines to help with the management. Some children in other countries don't even have regular insulin. Tom has never had to go without insulin. We can always test his bsl and always have insulin too use.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
