Got the test results.  Two out of three have gone up.  The other went down .002.

Is there some magic number they have to hit?

The waiting game continues.  It's hard to maintain hope.

Normal fasting is 80-120 for children (70-99 for adults) so it isn't that high.

Must remember that.

Hopefully it's just the sick.


Miranda isn't feeling well this morning.  She woke up, headed to the bathroom and ended up throwing up.  I tested her blood sugar and it was 128.  Fasting.

I'm hoping it's just that she is a little dehydrated since she didn't drink much yesterday and it was hot.  After getting dressed she came out and had a little water, then milk and eggo blueberry waffles and says she's feeling a little better.

So I'll be testing again later today.

Had a message on my cell phone from TEDDY.

Instant panic.

Calls the week before, a couple days before, her next visit don't cause the rise in blood pressure etc because I know they are just reminder calls.

But when the call comes a couple weeks AFTER a visit . . . it's been the bad news about antibodies with each one being being progressively worse.

The message just said they were calling about setting up her next appointment but it's not until the end of October when she has her next OGTT.  So I called and left a message back but nothing yet.

So is that really why they called?

Always Thinking

Thinking gluten free.

She really doesn't eat much bread, maybe two slices a week and that would be pushing it.  She doesn't use buns.

Pasta a couple times a week.  Pretzels or crackers the same.  Otherwise it's rice when it comes to grains so it would just be a matter of a couple months to eat through what's in the house.

She's not a celiac.  She's tested every year and doesn't show any symptoms.

I'm just wondering if it might stop those stupid antibodies.  See I'm sure there is SOMETHING I could do if I could just figure it out.
