Sleepless nights... Fighting to find a cure

Last night was a good example of why donating to organizations that are fighting to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes is very important to me. Cliffy was high 392 at Bedtime. He got 2 unites Humalog, and 5 units Lantus. I checked him at 10:30 , only 2.5 hrs later and he had dropped to 99!. That is a great number normally, and one we would be happy with, but a number under 100 at bedtime concerns me. I decided to retest at 12 and see where we were at. 12 rolls around and we are at 130 (Awesome , so I thought.) At 3 am the meter read 79!! Well that means it's time to treat, ran downstairs, got a pixie stick, ran back up, gave it to him, he woke up after he ate it to tell me he was dizzy, but he was already treated. Re checked at 3:30, and we were sitting at 106, still a iffy number with me. But went back to bed, and we woke up at 206, a little high but not horrible. Last night was another one of those sleepless nights, a night where Cliffy was tested 3 times in his sleep, and even woken to be treated and have some candy. A good reason why I want to find a cure. This month we are trying to help by donating 10% of our profits to the DRI. Take a look below at the event we have going on throughout the month of March, even the DRI on Facebook has helped to get the word out for us!!!

As you all know my son Cliffy (7) was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes on February 28th 2010. Since then we've been working to raise awareness and get the word out. Now we have been given an opportunity to make a difference by raising money and contributing to organizations who are working to find a cure for diabetes.

During the month of March 10% of our profits through our Amway business will be donated to the DRI (Diabetes Research Institute).
This is our way of helping a great cause and fighting to find a cure.
