Lainey's Grandpa Richey
We have a new Super Hero when it comes to diabetes.
Lainey's Grandpa Richey.
While in Arizona over Christmas Break, I enjoyed sleeping in while my parents fed my kids in the morning. I'd usually get up soon after the girls did in order to give Lainey her breakfast insulin. However, one morning I really slept in and raced into the kitchen to check on the breakfast status. My dad calmly explained, "Lainey showed me how to use her pump, and I already gave her insulin." I was dumbfounded! I guess Lainey has watched me show people how to bolus her enough times to know the drill.
On a side note: Since Lainey began preschool in September, she's been checking her own blood sugar before lunch and before she gets on the bus to come home. She's taken on a lot of responsibility and we're so proud of her in how she's managing her diabetes.
It seems as though we have another Super Hero in the house.
Her name is Lainey.
