Getting List-y.

I don't have words for how awesome the start of the You Can Do This Project was. I spent most of the day watching videos, reading blog posts, and trying to comment everywhere I could. (I'm still working through the list, and I hope I don't accidentally miss anyone!) I've got a few things I want to mention, so things are about to get listful. (Listless? Listmore? Something.)
  1. Today is the first day you can enter to win a free customized medical ID from Hope Paige Medical. In order to get yourself in the drawing, leave a comment on the You Can Do This page before midnight (CST) tonight. I'll announce the winner Friday morning here on Texting My Pancreas, the Facebook page, and through Twitter.
  2. I recently switched back to soy coffee creamer, and am now remembering why this stuff is so awesome - it tastes pretty good, and it doesn't turn my CGM graph into an Etch-A-Sketch drawing of Mt. Everest, either.
  3. Billy discovered yesterday that furniture is something you can climb on. Noooooooooo!
  4. And lastly, I had a doctor appointment yesterday. A1C hasn't changed much from last time (7.1 this round), but I think I can be okay with that, for now. I was also told, "Your bloodwork is boring." Music to my ears.
Please keep sharing your stories through the You Can Do This Project - yesterday was just the start. We're doing great things for others here, by talking about the tough stuff. I'm so proud of you all, and thankful for your honesty, bravery, and capacity for all things awesome.

  5. Incredible job in organizing this project, Kim. I've yet to complete my task at hand, but it's coming soon. Nice job on keeping that A1c level and getting the "boring lab work." Oh, and puppy hair will become your new best friend. But it's so totally worth it.
