The Sugar Shot | Emphasis on Shot

The test strip vial in the front of Caleb’s PDM carrying case does not contain test strips. When we empty vials, I take off the label and either put them in the dishwasher or collect used test strips in them.

The ones that go through the dishwasher are used for Sugar Shots. The idea came from Reyna who got the idea from “J”.

Sugar Shot: Clean test strip vial filled with Nerds (number one ingredient is dextrose) for the treatment of low blood sugars.

Thirteen is the lucky number for us in terms of the number of carbs. Reyna’s is fourteen. Thirteen/Fourteen. Toe-may-toe/Toe-mah-toe.

Here’s an email of a recent exchange between Caleb’s school nurse and myself. Caleb has been calling me with his course of action rather than the nurse calling me. When he does this, I email Nurse R to keep her in the loop:

Caleb’s going to a new school next year with a new nurse. I will miss R’s sense of humor. 🙂
