~Me, Tib and Stacey at Tib's bbq. Fun girls and fun times!
~Sydney and Ethan. He also has Type 1..diagnosed at age 4. They have the same minimed pump...aww now that's fate. :-)
~Morgan on Tib's swingset. She loved it. AND Tib got this pic of morgan both smiling AND looking at the camera. That is a difficult feat!
We go to this doctor once a year. He specializes in Type 1 Diabetes in kids. He is great and we love the advice he gives us. But it is a long drive for this appointment so we only make it once a year...maybe more if we run into issues. They always take her A1C and then look through her numbers and help us make changes. Lately we have had ISSUES with her numbers. They bounce from the 40s all the way to the 400s. It has been very frustrating. I was scared to get her A1C but it was great 6.8. The problem is that Syd has this A1C because she is having a lot of really low lows that offset her really high highs. As far as her major organs are concerned, esp her heart, it would be healthier for Sydney to remain at a 200 average than to be jumping around so much. Those big bounces damage her heart. So obviously we want to try and reduce the number of those as much as we can. He gave us some great tips and we will see if we can't get a little more control. Maybe being in school will help. Anyway here are some pics from this.

~Me holding her while she gets her blood drawn. She is so good at this though. She doesn't move! She sits so still. I'm proud of her!
