Total Prep

I love A Sweet Life and a thing I wrote was posted there today. It is about punishing* a child (mine) after a hypo, for something that happened while hypo. I would love if you’d read it and share your opinion, even if your opinion is that I am mean. (*Technically I guess it was negatively reinforcing, not punishing.) (No. It was negative punishment. Taking away a good thing.)

Meanwhile, school starts in two weeks a week.

Things to do:

1. THE BIGGIE: Meeting with principal, teachers, town 504 coordinator wherein everyone agrees to follow the 504 and post meeting there’s a barely audible hubbub: What a nice woman! and I’m baffled as to why the teachers last year were unable to follow this simple, necessary, and perfectly reasonable plan

2. FOR A SURPRISE: Apply Pump Peelz decal to Dexcom. Such BG. Amaze. Many 100. When I got my order confirmation, I replied to the Pump Peelz email robot to say I can’t believe you have a doge! And it wrote back: Yes. Such Peelz. Very shipped. Amaze.
