Almost here!

Tomorrow is a big day. It's the day I've been thinking about for almost a year now. I'm sure some of you already know what I'm talking about ... But for those who don't ... Callans PUMP will be arriving tomorrow.

We haven't had our training yet so it's not officially our first day but still! I can't wait to hold that little piece of hope in my hands. Just to be able to touch it, knowing (hoping) that Callans bg will be more regulated makes me feel like its Christmas!

Callan was unsure about it at first, but now he's soooo excited. We've been watching endless videos on YouTube of site changes and he is 100% on board. He even got a special Spiderman doll in the mail today ... Complete with his very own pump! He had the biggest smile on his face when he told me that Spiderman has diabebes just like him! He melts my heart.

Tired.

Wednesday night Callan started complaining about a headache. His bg was actually really good for once, and he had no ketones. So I gave him some Tylenol and he went to bed.

The next morning he woke up at 485 and had large ketones, so I called the dr and we went right in. They discovered he had an ear infection, monitored him in the office for a while, and sent us home when his numbers went down. He started throwing up, but the dr contributed that with being so high then dropping quickly. I checked throughout the day and he didn't have any ketones so I THOUGHT we were in the clear. Ha!

At 8pm he was 114, without ketones, but he had a bit of a fever. Something told me to check him again. At 9:15 he was 490, with large ketones, and a 102 fever. I took him straight to the ER.

We waited for an hour in the waiting room until the staff finally got tired of me explaining what can happen with high bg and ketones. After lab work they told us that he was on the verge of going into DKA!

He was admitted, and diagnosed with viral pneumonia. He had a fever of 104 off and on yesterday, and he was super out of it. Today he woke up feeling much better and we were released.

I can't imagine what might have happened had I not taken him into the ER. I had been giving him small doses of insulin all day and he still almost went into DKA! Keep an extra close eye on your babes when they are sick. It can take a turn for the worst sooo quickly!!

Hi.

And I don't mean hello.

Every single day for the past few weeks Callan has had the dreaded "Hi" reading. I wish the meter was just genuinely telling me hi. Maybe it knew I was having a bad day and was reaching out to talk to me. To let me know that everything is going to be okay. But, unfortunately, our meter isn't that friendly. It means that Callans bg is over 600.

I have adjusted his insulin, restricted carbs, drowned him in water. Nothing is working. I know this means that we are officially out of the honeymoon stage and that makes me a little sad.

I don't want to even start to think of the long term repercussions this is having on my sweet 3 year olds body. It makes my heart hurt. :(

In a few weeks we have our first appointment with our new endo in Denver. I'm hoping and praying that we can start the pumping process. Maybe even get a CGM.

Please keep him in your thoughts.

Dear Diabetes.

Dear Diabetes,

I hate you. Not like I hate coconut or the stomping of feet in the apartment above us. My hate for you is deep. Like the hate for someone who hurts innocent children. The hate for someone who takes precious childhood memories away. The hate for someone that sucks the happiness out of the day in one split fleeting second. You, diabetes, are the most hated of all.

But guess what? You cant win. You can try to take our childs sweet innocent memories and replace them with horrible ones of finger sticks, injections, and constant doctors visits. And you can keep on trying. But I will not let this go down without a fight.

I will give my son the most normal wonderful childhood that anyone can hope for. I will replace your pain with joy, frustration with peace, hate with love.

ALL children deserve to have a childhood and I will fight you to the death to make it so. I don't care if it takes every ounce of life within me. You will never win.

Sincerely,

Your WORST Enemy

Mr. Cason.

My 1 year old has had quite the hard life. He was born 5 weeks early, spent 3 weeks in NICU, 2 of those being intubated. He has severe food allergies and is developing new ones everyday!

Over the past month or so he has been doing something that scares the crap out of me! He will get mad and hold his breath until he turns blue. During that time his body is stiff, hands in fists, toes curled, and his back is arched. It looks like he is having a seizure!

Friday night he got really mad at me because his food was all gone and he wasn't ready to be done! He did the breath holding bit, but this time it was different. He didn't breath for over a minute. His eyes were rolled back in his head and I panicked! I called 911 and the poor lady couldn't understand a word I was saying! The ambulance got there within seconds, and right as thy came up he started breathing again.

Today we made a trip to the pedi to get to the bottom of it. He was diagnosed with breath holding spells. The dr is referring him to a neurologist, and has ordered an EEG with sedation. (This makes me nervous because he's had seizure like activity while on Ativan and Versed while in the NICU!)

The dr also did bloodwork and it came back positive for Celiacs disease. We also added a new allergen ... Milk! :(

This is so much to take in and I'm feeling super overwhelmed right now!

Yikes.



I can not believe it's been 2 whole months since I've posted anything! I guess we've been a little busy!

Callan has been having crazy high numbers lately. I'm hoping it's from traveling.  We've pretty much been going going going since April!  In the past 3 months we've been to 6 states, "lived" in a hotel for 2.5 months, and took a trip to visit my family in California (where we also got to visit Yosemite, & Monterey!)  I'm hoping things start settling down, so we can get back on track.  BUT we are still living in an empty home, waiting to go get our stuff from storage in New Mexico!  We've been sleeping on air mattresses for almost a month.  I know I can't wait to get my bed up here to Wyoming!

We've also added 2 more allergens to Casons list. Peas & fish. They were both pretty bad reactions, but luckily did not require the epi-pen!  Although last month we had to for the very first time.  Someone touched him who more than likely had ranch dressing on their hands. (Ranch=Mayo=Eggs!)  His lip swelled up, and his face started breaking out in welts. My husband gave him the shot and it was pretty scary!  His face turned blue, and almost immediately cleared up. I'm hoping we don't have to use it again, but I'm pretty sure we will have to.  Cason is also going through a tantrum stage. (He's only 1!)   If he gets mad he will hold his breath, turn blue, and almost pass out! It is so scary!  He's my youngest of 5 and I've never had to deal with this before!

I hope y'all are doing okay!

Callans first time at the beach! :)

Hello?

I'm still here!  I apologize for going such a long time without writing anything.  Things are a little crazy over here.

2 weekends ago we drove back from Rock Springs, WY to Las Cruces, NM with the 3 youngest boys straight through. That's 17 hours! The entire next day & parts of Sunday we packed up our house, and put everything into storage.  Sunday afternoon we took off for Sheridan, Wyoming!  We have been here for almost 2 weeks.

Last weekend we took a trip to Rapid City, SD and had a mini vacation.  We went to an indoor waterpark, Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, & Devil's Tower!  We had so much fun!










Can I also say that I love love love Wyoming?  I really didn't think that we would ever move here. (We used to live in Northern Colorado, so I knew what it was like here.) But I it has sunk it's beautiful scenery, extremely friendly people, and wonderful (spring) weather right into me and I don't ever want to go!  Ask me about this again in the winter. I will be a hermit then! :)

Callan has been doing really good.  It was so surreal to check his bg with Mount Rushmore directly in front of us!  Like almost a little freeing ... we can travel the U.S. and be in a hotel for a month and

Wyoming!

Our lives have been turned upside down .. again.   Last Wednesday my husband lost his job.  We spent all day Thursday applying for everything that we could find.  This was so sudden, and we were not prepared at all!  Friday he had a phone interview with a company in Salt Lake City, UT.  They offered him pretty much the same position as he had with his prior company .. but it was in Rock Springs, Wyoming .. and we would need to be there by Sunday.  Did I mention this was on Friday???

So Friday night we started packing up stuff to go with us, as well as the house.  Saturday morning we had our JDRF walk.  It was a little cold, but fun!



Saturday we spent the day running errands and packing up more stuff.  Sunday morning we took off for the great state of Wyoming, our car full of clothes, diabetes supplies, and diapers.    And that's where I am right now!  Sitting in a hotel, trying to find a not so expensive place to rent!  In 2 weeks we'll be heading back down to New Mexico to pack up everything and truck it up here. I'm not looking forward to that 28hr round trip drive! :/

So, I have a question. Do any of y'all live in Wyoming?  Or do you live in a state that doesn't have any pediatric endos?  I've been googling, and I can't find any in this whole entire state!  The closest one is in Salt Lake City, 2 hours away. How would that work if Callan uses a state medicaid?  (Callan qualified for disability through SSI because of his t1d, and automatically gets medicaid now!)

Thanks in advance. :)

Happy Easter!

Oh what a busy week it has been!

Tuesday we took our trip to ABQ to see the endocrinologist.  It has been in the high 80's for the past few weeks here.  Well, that day it decided to SNOW! We had left at 6am, I was in some sweat pants because it's a 3.5hr trip there. I thought I had brought a pair of jeans and capris with me. Think again!  I had capris and flip flops in the snowy 32* weather.

Callans appointment was okay. His A1C went up from 8 to 8.7.  :/   We've had a lot of highs because he's been sick.  He is also being referred to a GI because he tested positive for Celiacs.  Just another thing to add to our bucket of things going on!  His appointment lasted a whole 20 minutes ... seems like such a short appointment for a 3.5hr drive!!

Afterwards we went to our most favorite place to eat, Red Robin. :)  There isn't one where we live so we only get it once every 3 months!  After that we went to the Albuquerque Aquarium.  The boys had so much fun!

Callan was afraid the fish would get him!




Cason also had an appointment with the dermatologist in ABQ.  They didn't really tell us anything that his allergist hadn't already told us, so it felt like a waste of time!  He has been having some issues as well.  For the past week he's had white diarrhea, and has been throwing up!  I'm afraid he's developing an allergy for milk.  

Thursday night our pedi told me to take him to urgent care.  We went there, and they sent us straight to the ER.  Cason had a rash on his face that looked like he had a sunburn, plus the diarrhea, vomiting, and a fever of 101.   The ER dr wasn't concerned at all. He asked me why I would even bring him in for a rash since he already has eczema, and that white diarrhea is normal!  I asked him a question about what was going on with Cason and he told me to stop trying to find things wrong with my kids!  Like I REALLY need more things wrong!



The next day I took him to his pedi and she thinks that it was just fifths disease.  I'm not too sure though.  She ordered a stool sample, and that's sitting in my refrigerator until tomorrow.  She's also referring him to a GI. 

I hope everyone had a less eventful week than me, and y'all are having a great Easter!

3:36a ramblings.

It's 3:36a, and I can't go back to sleep. :/

I actually feel like I haven't slept in days.  Callans numbers have been crazy!  He pretty much has been in the 200-500's on a consistent basis since Thursday.  But he will have crazy lows too. Like last night. At 11:30p he was 388, and at the 2a check he was 60! For breakfast this morning he was 102. At lunch his meter said HI and it wasn't telling me hello!   He hasn't had any ketones though, but this is driving me insane!  If we adjust his Lantus to a higher dose it seems like he has consistent lows, and no matter how much Novolog we give him he always seems high!  Except at the times when you don't want him too low .. i.e. night!

My other children probably think they have diabetes too.  I have checked Corbin & Callan so many times in the past couple of days, my husband thinks I'm going nuts.  Corbin is always hungry (not like him at all!) and thirsty!  Cason has ginormous diapers without a lot of liquids.  They always come up normal.  Does the paranoia ever stop?

Cason has had a tough couple of days too.  He had an allergic reaction to a flipping french fry!  He immediately got red welts on his face and back, and he didn't even swallow it!! He already doesn't want to eat solid foods, and his crazy food allergies make me not want to feed him anything new!  He can survive off of milk, pureed veggies, fruits, and yogurt for the rest of his life, right?

Red welts after eating a french fry. :/

We see our endo on Tuesday, as well as a dermatologist for Cason.  It's a 7 hour round trip.  I'm super nervous. I have been a failure at faxing in Callans numbers, and keeping good log books.  Hopefully she will not be to upset at me and understand that we just have a lot going on! 

My husband and I are both not feeling so great.  My body hurts. ALL THE TIME.  Right now my lower back feels like it's on fire!  I have random pains everywhere. I'm sure it's all from stress.  I just want to feel normal again!

Happy THIRD Birthday Callan!

6lbs 5oz. 18 1/2" long.
3 years ago today, at 3:55am, I gave birth to the strongest, toughest, most stubborn little boy.  Callan has ALWAYS been stubborn. It's his way or no way.  He's super shy (like his mommy!) but isn't afraid to tell you to get away from him or that he doesn't like you.

My wittle 1 month old baby Callan.

Callans birth was very dramatic.   My husband had gotten a promotion and we were temporarily living in a town 3 hours away from my ob/gyn.  I had been going back and forth just for appointments, which was hard!  About a week before Callan was born I got really really sick .. I didn't even have a voice!  My ob/gyn assured me that it was safe to take Tylenol Cold & Flu while pregnant.

Corbin & Callan.
Well, fast foward a week and some days.  I'm still taking the medicine. I just couldn't get better!  At 11:30pm I started having contractions.  By 2:30am I knew it was really happening.  So my husband rushed me to the hospital.  I don't know if they just weren't paying attention, or really didn't know what they were doing. But my whole birth experience with him was terrible.  They thought that I had not had any prenatal care during my entire pregnancy.  They tried getting records, but no one would call them back from my drs office. (Which is a blessing, because I had signed papers for a tubal!  If they had gotten the papers I wouldn't have a Cason!)
18 months old.

I was getting my spinal for my c-section when the dr walks in.  He said that my blood test had tested positive for meth!!!  (FYI I have never done a drug in my life!)  He started calling me a meth head, and was telling me that he was going to call cps to have my kids taken away because drug addicts don't deserve children. Remember, all of this was going on while a huge needle was going into my back. :/
Callan and big sister Ashlynn.

I was freaking out.  He was so rude, and mean to me, and I didn't understand what was going on!  I kept asking questions during the surgery and he wouldn't even talk to me.  He didn't even show me Callan after he was born!   My husband couldn't come in with me because we had the kids, and no one to watch them. They didn't even update him for an hour and a half after surgery!!  The dr did call cps. They had to search the apartment that we were staying in and found nothing, of course!  So first thing when we left the hospital we both had to go for more accurate drug testing. Needless to say, we passed!  After some googling, I found out that you can have a false positive for methamphetamines while taking cold medicine! 
Ashlynn, Callan, Corbin, & Zackary.
Callan and Corbin.
Top 10 things that I love about Callan:

1. You are so tough. I know you can handle anything.
2. When you randomly say "You're the best mommy ever!" You know how to melt my heart!
3. You secretly deep down love your brothers and sister.

4. The smile on your face when it's time to eat!
5. When I ask you your name and you say "Spiderman Anderson".
6. You are so brave. You have been through so much for a little boy. I am so proud of you!
7. The way you tell Daddy to go to his room if you don't like what he says or does.
8. That you love love love swimming.
9. You are so smart!
10.You have the greatest imagination!
He's so tough!

Mommy sure does love you Mr. Callan Riker!

The sickies.

Last Sunday I had to take Corbin (4) and Callan (2) to Urgent Care.  They both had double ear infections (their first ear infections ever!), pink eye, tonsillitis, and the flu. They were nice enough to pass on their colds to us. So sweet!  I haven't been sick in over a year, and it's going on almost a week now .... which means my house is a MESS!

Callans blood sugar has been weird. He's only been sick one other time since diagnosis.  He ran super high then, and that's when we wound up in the ER.  Well this time is completely different!  He has been super low.  He's eating the same, and we went one day without giving any Novolog at all.   Well, I guess he's better now.  Today he was 505 before lunch. Can't we get an in between?

My husband and I have been talking about relocating.  We always knew that moving to New Mexico wasn't permanent, but we were planning on being here a little bit longer.  But with everything that's been happening we are trying to speed it up a bit.  Cason (1) is allergic to dust .. and living in the desert with a sandbox as a backyard isn't quite the best environment for his allergies.  Plus we'd like to be closer to an endocrinologist.  Right now we have a 7hr drive round trip.

Do any of y'all have any suggestions on better places to live with children with allergies?

The crazies.

All of this stress has finally caught up to me.  My dr sent me to the ER last week because of chest pain, which we ultimately found out was caused from STRESS. My RESTING heart rate was 112 bpm. RESTING!   Along with some excellent medication, I'm supposed to spend 20 minutes a day doing something just for me.  I'm not allowed to think about diabetes, allergies, money, or anything that might cause me stress.  Who are these people kidding?

I don't know about y'all but I can't just shut my mind off.  It is constantly going at full steam....

Did I calculate Callans carb/insulin ratio right?  
Should I check his bg now or is it too soon? 
Is he hugging me because he's low? (which is my cue that he is unfortunately!) 
Did Cason just eat something off of the floor?   
Did it have gluten/peanuts/soy/eggs/dog or cats in it?  
Why is there something on the floor when I just swept and mopped minutes ago?!?!?  

I can go on for hours here people!

So my question for y'all is, how do you get your ME time?  It's been so long that I've done anything that didn't really involve my kids, especially kids with medical needs, that I don't even know what to do!  If I sit down to read a book it's usually a book about diabetes or allergies.  If I get on the computer I'm pinning things about diabetes or allergies.  What else is there to do?  Is there actually life beyond diabetes and allergies?!?  Help me!

Stranger Danger.

In the past year I have had enough stupid questions and advice from strangers to write a book.  I know that they mean well, are really probably trying to help, and are obviously concerned by asking me questions.  But it drives.me.crazy!   

Here is my top ten list of questions and comments that I've gotten from strangers in the past year ...

1.  What's wrong with your baby?  [Asking about Cason & his eczema. I would never just bluntly ask someone what was wrong with their child.  Would you go up to someone with a child in a wheel chair and ask what is wrong with them? I sure wouldn't!]

2. Oatmeal/Lotion/Baby oil/Foot Fungus medicine/Menthol/Steroids will cure eczema. [Obviously some of these things will make it better, but the only thing that has pretty much taken it away was finding out what he was allergic to and taking these things out of his diet.]

3. A stranger started up a conversation with me at a restaurant and it went a little like this ...

Stranger: Hi. Does he have eczema?
Me: Yes, he does.
S:  You need to give him an oatmeal bath, that will cure it.
M: I can't. He's allergic to oatmeal.
S: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. No one is allergic to oatmeal.
M: Actually, he is. Oatmeal has gluten in it. He started wheezing, and his lip swelled up when he consumed gluten for the first time.  I'm not rubbing it all over his body.
S:  You need to just do it.  It's better for him to not be itchy. If he can't breath, just take him to the hospital!  
M: [I had nothing more to say at this point. I think I just blankly stared at her until she went on to the next topic.]

4. The same conversation with the very same stranger ...

S: I saw you doing something with blood and his finger. [Talking about Callan.] What were you doing?
M: I was checking his blood sugar. He has diabetes.
S: And you do this in public?
M: Yes. I need to check his blood sugar every time before he eats.
S: Do you give him shots?
M: Yes. He gets a shot every time he eats, or if his blood sugar is too high.
S: Do you do this in public?
M: Yes.
S: That's disgusting. You should take him into the bathroom to do that. No one wants to see it. You'll scare the other kids.
M: [Biting my tongue so hard that it nearly falls off because if I don't I will surely say something horrible, and maybe go to jail for brutally assaulting someone.]

5. Someone who is 2 years old shouldn't have diabetes. You must be feeding him junk.

6. That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life! You need to get a new doctor! [After educating someone that Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disorder and isn't caused by lifestyle or diet.]

7.  You should just give him cinnamon!  That cured my diabetes. [An older woman at a restaurant.]

8. Your baby has eczema because you don't take care of him.  

9.  I guess you should have stopped after having 3 kids since your youngest two have so many problems.

10.  Of course he has diabetes, look how FAT he is!!  [Callan is almost 3 years old, 42", and 43lbs. He is big, not fat.]

So, is this only happening to me, or do y'all hear the same things??

Happy TWELFTH Birthday Zacky Do Da!

Oh gosh. It's hard to even write this post.  My oldest, my first baby, is twelve years old.  How is that even possible?!  

I remember the day like it was yesterday.  I was young, and naive. I knew I was in labor, but I was scared. I thought if I ignored it, it would just go away. HA!   I got to the hospital at 5:30am on February 26, 2000.  The nurse thought I wasn't really in labor, but they were going to keep me and do my c-section that day anyways. . since I was there.  My c-section was actually scheduled for leap day!  Zackary was breech. They had tried doing an external cephalic version (turning him) but it didn't work.  Come to find out [after my c-section] that I have a bi-cornuate uterus which means that my uterus is basically shaped like a heart. Anyway, my water broke at 8am, and he was born at 11:32am.  He weighed 6lbs 12oz, and was 18.5" long.  He was such a good baby, but also suffered from asthma & eczema. [Like Cason!] 

I always sang a song to him that I made up.  A remix version of Zippity Do Da. [Thus the nickname Zacky Do Da]     "Zackity Do Da. Zackity Aye. Oh my my this is Zackarys Day. Plenty of sunshine coming his way! Zackity Do Da. Zackity Aye."   He gets really embarrassed when I sing it now.  But I can't help it!  He will forever always be my Zacky Do Da.

Why I love my Zacky:

1. He is so sweet. He picked up dog poop for people over the summer just to buy his brother a birthday present with his OWN money.

2. He is an amazing artist. He wants to design video games when he grows up!

3. He's still a mamas boy, and would sleep with me if I let him.

4. He doesn't follow the crowd. He likes what he likes and that's how it is!

5. He is an awesome rock climber!

6. He has unique hair styles. He's had a mohawk, faux hawk, super long hair, and went completely bald! He has bright red hair too.

7. He is an entrepreneur. He is always trying to figure out ways to make money.

8. He is so smart.

9.  He has an awesome sense of humor. He can always make me laugh!

10.  He is such a great big brother!

Happy 12th birthday sweet boy!  The time sure has flown by. I love you so so so much!

[This was supposed to post yesterday, on his birthday, but for some reason it didn't! So it's a little belated!]

Happy FIRST Birthday Sweet Cason!

Yesterday my last precious baby turned 1. 


To say he's had a hard time is an understatement.  At 18 weeks pregnant we found out that there was an issue with my placenta. It had detached, and reattached.  It was too low, and shaped weird.  It's called a circumvallate placenta.  I was pretty much on bedrest from 18wks until I had him.  I couldn't keep any food down, so I lost tons of weight.  I also had way too much fluid. At 28wks, I was measuring 42wks!  The only good thing about this was being able to see my baby on the ultrasound screen once a week.

3D Ultrasound taken at 34 weeks.
Cason was born at 35 weeks.  Even though he weighed a whopping 6lbs 14oz, he still had to go to the NICU.  When he was born he swallowed some [clear] fluid, and developed pneumonia.  He was on a cpap at first, but eventually had to be intubated. He was also on a brainz monitor for quite some time because they thought he was having seizures. [It was really a reaction to the Ativan & Versed they were giving him.] Seeing my baby like this was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through. He spent 3 very long weeks in NICU, until he finally got to come home. 

1st picture. Before he was whisked away to NICU.

Day 1 in the NICU.

My first time holding him!

A week away from going home.


Shortly after coming home he developed severe reflux. He was projectile spitting up after every feeding no matter what I did.  Then he developed a rash on his little cheeks. I took him to the dr KNOWING it was eczema, because my oldest had had this as well. They convinced me it was baby acne.  A few weeks later we relocated to another state, and I KNEW it was eczema then. He had patches all over his poor little body.

He has been on so many medications, and creams. Now every morning when he sees the medicine dropper he gets excited. How sad is that!!  About a month ago he was diagnosed with some allergies after having an allergic reaction to something.  We wound up in the ER, and he was given epinepherine.  As of right now he has an epi pen and is allergic to eggs, soy, gluten, peanuts, and dog and cat dander. : /  He is also having to have breathing treatments regularly.

Even though his first year has been totally stressful and insane, I wouldn't change anything. Don't get me wrong, I would take everything away from him and give it to myself in an instance. But I couldn't imagine my life without this sweet little boy in it.  He has completed our family.

Happy FIRST birthday my sweet baby.  I hope you have a HEALTHY second year.

Things I LOVE about CASON:
1. He says dada when I say mama, and then laughs.
2. He thinks he's so funny, and fake laughs all.the.time!
3. He has the most sweetest smile.
4. He is a fish!  He would live in the water if he could.
5. He gives me random kisses.
6. He is scared of monkeys and the vaccuum.
7. He won't drink from a sippy cup, but he can drink from a big cup like it's nobodys business.
8. The way his face lights up when I get him up in the morning.
9. The way he plays with the door stopper.
