Matthew is such a boy. He wants to play, have fun, and think about diabetes as little as possible.
I get that. And I try to not let it bother me. Especially since he's great about paying attention to how he feels and catches his lows.
But whenever he's at a friend's house and they're having a snack, he'll always call and ask me what to do.
I would love for him to take a more "active" role in his diabetes, but again, I try not to let it bother me. At least he's calling for help, right?
Well yesterday, he made HUGE progress.
He was at a friend's house and called, but this time it was different.
"Mom, we're having popcorn. We measured out 2 cups and I already bolused for 8 carbs. But I didn't check my sugar, because it's only been a couple hours since lunch. Did I do that right?"
I was completely floored. "Yes, honey. You did it just right. Good job!"
Now that's the way to start a New Year!
