Moments of Wonderful - …rather than a lifetime of nothing special. A diabetes blog.

This Month

Wow. It seems like I haven’t posted in a really long time. I don’t know that I have gone 10 days without posting since I practically started blogging. I haven’t felt motivated to do much of anything lately. Other than shop – but I’m not sure it helped. I really should put together my JDRF walk team, but it just seems like so much effort right now to start.

I want to like February – I really do, but… well, you decide.

  • This year, my aunt was diagnosed with cancer. I really appreciate all your words of encouragement and prayers. It means a lot to me that I have this network of support from across the country – and even further!
  • In 2006, my mom was in a very serious car accident in which we found out that her head is in fact strong enough to break the windshield. Other than temporary memory loss, everything turned out alright. Yes, she was wearing her seatbelt. The way the other car hit her did not activate the locking mechanism on the belt.
  • The date of the big D diagnosis. On February 4, 2003 I was taken in a security vehicle from my college dorm to the ER and eventually admitted with a blood sugar level of 713.

However, also this month –

  • I began pumping on February 1, 2004. I am actually in the process of getting my new pump right now. I am going with a clear MM 522. The only hold-ups are that I am trying to appeal my DME cap so that I am not responsible to pay for about half the cost of my pump and I am also trying to decide if I would like to pay out of pocket for the CGMS. If I purchase it now, I can put it on the payment plan with my pump (no interest, etc). If I wait, I would have to pay it all at once. I want it, I don’t need it. I can’t decide.
  • My birthday is tomorrow (Wednesday). I am going to be… choke… garble… cough… 27. Let me tell ya, not where I pictured I would be at 27, but hey – such is life! It’s also Hannah’s birthday tomorrow so make sure you hop over to her blog and wish her a happy birthday too!

I haven’t heard anything from my friends about any plans for my birthday. I do have dinner plans with a few people for tomorrow night but that is about it. Nothing like having a birthday near a major romantic holiday to make the single girl feel a lot more single!! By this weekend, I am either going to be seriously excited because they ‘surprised’ me with something or seriously bummed because they didn’t.

Oh, and Amylia wrote an awesome post today. Please go check it out!

    Happy Birthday Sara!
    September is my mixed bag month, so I know how you feel. I hope you can enjoy this day and take the good with the bad.
    By the way I didn’t comment on your post about your aunt, but I did read it. I just wanted tell you my thoughts are with your family, and I’m hoping for the best whatever that may be.

    Happy Birthday, Sara!

    Hey, your mom’s car looks almost identical to how mine looked when I hit a deer. Same dent & everything. But my head didn’t hit the windshield. But I’m sure my head is hard enough to break it, too. LOL!
