White Water Rafting

We had a blast with the Davis family on Saturday. They called at 7:00am and invited us last minute to go white water rafting down the American River. It was supposed to be 95 degrees but the temperature ended up being only 85 and windy...but we still had a lot of fun. The boat didn't flip and we all lived to tell about it! It was a great family activity and we hope to go again.

Our First Date

June 19th is the anniversary of our first date. Jeff and I went to the Rivercats game 3 years ago exactly as of Friday the 19th. So when I found out the Rivercats were playing again on the 19th this year I decided to get tickets. So we got to "relive the moment." We had a fun date night for sure... and this time Jeff didn't have to drop me off at the doorstep!

I didn't know I was going to rattle so many nerves when I put my last post up (HA HA, ok so maybe I had a little bit of an idea)! BUT to answer everyone's question- I am NOT pregnant.

I know I know, you're sad... But my good news is that I am going to get an insulin pump. I am a type 1 diabetic and do insulin shots. I give myself a shot of insulin before every meal and before I go to bed, which comes out to a lot of shots because I love food!

The insulin pump is about the size of a deck of cards and it would be attached to my body through an IV wire and it would deliver the insulin into my body with a click of a button. I would insert the tubing with a needle and then the needle comes out of the tubing but the tubing stays in my body... I would have to change the tubing about every 3 days. So it would come out to ONE shot every 3 days instead of multiple shots every day. So less pokes and better blood sugar control. Sounds great to me.

I have an "assessment" for the pump next week, which means they talk to me and make sure that I am willing and ready to use the insulin pump correctly and that I understand everything about it. These suckers cost about $8000 so the companies that make them don't hand them out like candy!

It's a major accomplishment for me because I have been working on getting the pump for a long time now and I haven't had much success- between being lazy, getting really frustrated with the nurses and feeling too overwhelmed/inadequate about it all has kept me from my goal until now. I knew I needed the pump if I wanted better control and a future family.
