Youngest DD and I signed up for a drawing on Saturday at Walgreens.  The prize was the gift basket above.  I had a message last night saying that DD won it, so we picked it up this afternoon.  She is thrilled!  It’s filled with beauty products,  samples and two gift cards to Chili’s.

DD’s blood sugar numbers have been a little better today.  We’ve increased her basal rate (the amount of insulin she gets each hour round the clock).  I’m hoping that will bring her blood sugar readings down in to the normal range (between 80 and 150) soon.  She’s got small ketones, which is an improvement over the moderate reading she got last night.   Things are looking up.

Thank you for your positive thoughts and prayers for DD.
