| FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2011
As Dave and I went to inject
Joe with insulin, our five year old Bridget screamed and cried. We are now able to bolus
carbs with about 75% insulin coverage. Isn't it great how post-vomit-bug-survival gives you a new lease on life? You feel like celebrating that you can sit up without a re-enactment of Poltergeist.

of insulin. Instructions during class, during sports, during games are missed, due to a blood sugar check, a bolus
