My CGM battery died in the middle of the night. Wish I would have known I was out of range so I could have treated it sooner.

I could not handle another (out of range) CGM picture, so let’s share a random moment. I promise the painting isn’t crooked, just the only way to take a picture directly in front of it would be from inside the kitchen sink.

There is no better way to close out the day of pictures than Bes and the first CGM value finally back in range (159).

Back for another year, let’s show everyone what life with diabetes looks like! With a nod to the Diabetes 365 project, let’s grab our cameras again and share some more d-related pictures. Post as many or as few as you’d like. Feel free to blog your thoughts on or explanations of your pictures, or leave out the written words and let the pictures speak for themselves.
