Friday Stuff

The doctor was happy with mommy's A1C test.  It was two whole points lower than last time (that's good). The "team" has told her to lower her insulin. And remember to eat.
Mama made a casserole last night and guess what. It had tunies in it. And I gotted some! And I still got my sammon Temptations!
Mama says I am very spoiled.
Mama goes back to the doctors Monday, but it is a different kind, and they don't take blood. And she better take something with her to eat!
Since she has been eating healthier she doesn't need as much insulin, but she can't forget about eating or making sure she eats enough carbs.
Don't worry. Mommy has been a diabetic for many years.  It's just that eating healthier changes things.
And I have a secret. Mama's birthday is Saturday!  Don't tell. She's old.
love,
brandi
ps. What the heck is a carb and does it taste good????

Yes, you keep reminding your mom to always bring a snack with her! But we're glad she is doing better AND that you got bonus treats.

ps carbs can be good--just ask to try some buttered popcorn.

I'm so sorry for the belated birthday wishes! We hope you had a wonderful day and all your birthday wishes came true.

That is a scary evening you had. Mommy went on a scrapbooking overnight a couple weeks ago and one of the women messed up her insulin shot because she didn't take into account she ate a big cookie. It was scary. We are glad she is OK and you're there to take good care of her.

purrrrrrrrs purrrrrrrrrrs purrrrrrrrs to you both!
