I just got back from a check-up with my endocrinologist. My glucose numbers have been a little high lately so she made some changes to my slow-acting insulin daily injection—Lantus. Its seems to be working because my glucose numbers have been more regular. My mom is very happy!
And speaking of making my mom happy, I made up for something I did at Christmas… I don’t always have good days. Sometimes my glucose numbers run high, and sometimes low. When they get low (hypoglycemia) I get irritable.
A low glucose reading might not have been the reason I upset her, but I’m going to go with that. I got angry about something and tore her Christmas gift in half. It was a picture of me taken at school in a card with a poem I wrote. She wasn’t happy. But, today my teacher let us take home the copy we made for the classroom, so I was able to fix my mistake. She was VERY happy.
My winter eyes behold,
whales swimming in the frozen sea,
wrapped up presents under a tree,
snowballs piled up outside.
My winter eyes behold.
