Burn Out!!!!

OK it's official....Markie has complete burn out , not just diabetes but all illnesses in general.  And it is wearing all Foisy's out.  Megan is still doing great with diabetes. Markie could care less if he checked his blood sugar, bolused, or counted carbs!!! I have even thought that I should just let him do what he wants for a day, he will get very ill, and then realize we are not doing this just to piss him off!!! Stop all meds, saline nasal rinses, inhalers, shots....and see how his breathing and sleeping is!!!

But if I did that....they would take my kids away!  And I would never willfully not give my kids there meds. 

Venting helps, but as soon as I get off this computer, and drive home, I am sure that arguing or frustration will begin....because this is when he does nasal rinse, and his blood sugar always spikes now...making him an angry little boy!!!

OK...gonna go now...we will see whats in store !!!!

summer fun!!!

Well it has been an uneventful summer, which is great!!  Markie is doing well, Megan had a fabulous dance time in Las Vegas...Mark is still fighting this injury from work. He is slowly getting better.
 Why is it that I always need to be doing something!! Seriously..with 4 diabetics, and Markie's other health things, how can I find myself bored!!! Crazy...but I will be happy to get back into the chaos of school and me teaching!  That is when I am the happiest!! I love to see my kids on a schedule and me too! 
Megan sleeps until 11!!! And she is 12!! What am I in for with the teens!  Well I can tell you she wont be sleeping until 11 then! I am gonna nick that right in the butt! Dance, work, and chores!  Actually I cant complain..she is such a great kid.  See, I threw my back out...very sore, had MRI awaiting results, well My little Megan took it upon herself to do laundry......yes I said laundry!! She sorted everything, pit in washer, then hung to dry, and put in drier!  I just love that girl!!! And she is always helping Dad!

....Markie,well, he at least is trying to get his dirty clothes in some sory of laundry basket!  He needs a lot more grooming than Megan ever did...

Endo went OK. Megan stayed with a1c of 8.6. Markie went from 8.6 to 9.6,=. Yikes!!!  Big Mark and I are the problem...we are just too afraid he will have another bad low resulting in a seizure!  The after effects of that one hypoglycemis seizure will last a lifetime!  If anyone has ever experienced watching their child go through this trauma, then you know what I am talking about.  Yes, Im a nurse, and I know that we need to cover all carbs, and correct all high's...but there is always that fear in our minds.  Big Mark still stays up every night until midnight to check him!!  I am considering getting another baby monitor for his room.  The CGM is still amongst the missing, so I cannot rely on that alarm anymore.  Plus being on prednisone and other crazy meds for his nose, his bloods still go all over the place.

So...we are at least going to try and cover all carbs, and Mark agrees to correct his midnight to 180.  Hopefully things will look better in 3 months!!

Oh and Yes, we are off to Legoland in 3 weeks!  Markie was fortunate to have a wish granted from Kids Wish Network!!! LOVE THEM!!! All expenses paid trip for 4 for 4 nights!  Markie needs a good vacation, and a good event to talk about!!! Cant wait for the TSA security check, luggage, and heat!  Oh and yes an 8 hour flight!! WOOHOO!!!
