After School Clean Up

Step-by-microstep instructions for using the Luxura pen, written by our school nurse for her sub. “…and gently rub area of injection.” It would have been an arm.

We were so excited to get the giant Luxura insulin pen in its fancy 1950′s case. When the pump came, the school nurse taped the case closed, but saved it (and one cartridge of insulin in her mini-fridge) in case of a lock-down or other impossible-to-imagine emergency.

100 days of carb lists. I put them in the recycling after taking this picture. I started saving them to give my husband ideas for what to pack when I went away, and then I couldn’t stop.

Last day of school June 21st. Sift through papers, medicine bag, lunch list collection. See relics diabetes past make bruise on heart.

This is a bottle of glucose tabs I didn’t know existed. B’s teacher kept it in her desk.

    I find all those notes comforting and heartbreaking at the same time.

    (and I mean that in the best possible way)

    I read your blog everyday because it makes me laugh but then it makes me cry.

    That unknown bottle of glucose tabs touched my heart and made me teary.
    I have found that kind of going-the-extra-mile support where least expected (school, parents of friends) and have less support where you would most expect it (family).
    I love when people are wonderful.

  5. oh the previously not known about glucose tabs. :)

    and all those carb lists. sigh.

    bruise on heart indeed.
