This deck is way better then my desk

Scott Benner

Good morning everyone!

I just got Cole and Arden their breakfast and now I'm sitting on the deck writing to you.

The trip thus far has been pretty steady as far as Arden's diabetes is concerned. We made the ten hour drive overnight and had a low around 2 am that we uncharacteristically handled at a McDonald's drive-thru with some fries. The french fries came back to haunt us a number of hours later but we bolused cautiously and didn't experience a low later even though Arden hadn't eaten in eight hours. Her BGnow was 107 when we stepped foot into this house for the first time!

The beach hasn't caused any lows yet but so far she has mainly been walking the sand and looking for shells. I'm not sure how much time we'll get in the ocean, it's very warm but still pretty rough from Hurricane Irene.

Arden did wake up low his morning but that was a product of us sleeping in, as her basal rate increased for breakfast but there was no food in her system. At Arden's weight a .05 increase in basal can act like a bolus.

I'll check in again when I can, Arden just came out to ask me if I'll go with her to put "our toes in the water".
