Up on the house top

Have you seen The Santa Clause? You know, the movie with Tim Allen where Santa falls off his roof and he's the new Santa? Remember the scene where (after accepting his responsibility as the new head honcho of Christmas) the elves are excitedly showing Santa their new inventions? A hot cocoa maker in the sleigh, a GPS system, a microphone in his hat the connects him directly to Judy. And all the while he keeps asking, "But what do I do if I fall off a roof?!" Well that's kind of how I feel with Jason's diabetes. We've been taught how to cook/eat for diabetes, how to test his blood sugar levels and I've even received special instructions on how to revive him from a diabetic coma. But as of right now, we have yet to actually be prescribe insulin. So now, after a meal we know his blood sugar levels are higher than they should be. But too bad? I mean really, there's nothing we can do. I feel like we've been perched on top of an icy rooftop with nothing to save us from falling. We have a doctors appointment on June 12th where (cross your fingers) they'll finally prescribe some insulin.

In other news, I was told my blog needed more pictures of me and Jason. I have some from when his family came out to visit a few weekends back, since I am behind on editing by four weddings, I haven't have time to upload them to my computer. So instead, here are some of my family at Disneyland in April! (I know, I know, only 1.5 months later...)

The Birthday Girls


Granny, Frank, Mom, Carlie and Dad in line for Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters.

i know a little bit how you feel about dealing with a husband with health issues. doctors still have no idea what causes Jared to have seizures. he had some this week that left his memory pretty screwed up. i guess you just learn to adjust and work through it--best of luck to you and Jason.

We are praying for you and Jason everyday. Life is about learning. More stuff for all of us to learn with Jason's diabetes. On another note. Did I really look that bad at Disneyland?

We are so sorry to hear you feel that way. It was hard not getting all the answers and help that we wanted when Blaze was ill as a baby, especially when you are having to make life altering adjustments. It's times like those that prayer seems to be all that gets you through and we are praying for both of you. Stay strong!

I hope Jason gets prescribed insulin. I think it's weird that they haven't yet. That was a great analogy! Hope all goes well, we've been thinking about you!
