Pump It Up!

Finally having my exams end on Wednesday, was such a relief. Cannot believe that I have completed my freshman year of college already!  I also finally decided that I wanted to double major and will be starting the Expanded Duty Dental Assisting Program next spring and then Dental Hygiene Program right after that :D
Hopefully I will not have many patients like him ;)
On another note, I started my insulin pump today (hints the title of this post) :]  I have been having severe low blood sugars and as much as we change my ratios around I just felt it was best to start on the pump.  Extremely nerve wracking and actually started getting light headed when we were inserting my infusion set, but everything worked out well.

This is my new meter & pump. I can use my meter to send a "text" like message to my pump without even touching my pump to give me the right amount of insulin.
This is the actual pump that I got (lime green of course!)
Hoping for good results!

I'll leave you with this quote that has helped me over the past week:
"Anyone can give up.  It's the easiest thing in the world to do.  But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength"

Blown Away

Saturday called for Storm Watch, literally.  Glenn and I went fishing (airforce winds, slight rain, oh & NO fish ha), he surprised me with a BEAUTIFUL necklace...(that I already have & let me tell you I felt like the biggest butthole telling him that but he was perfectly fine with it and we are going to look for something else), and then come around 8pm he gets a phone call for Storm Watch in Raleigh, North Carolina!  
We were supposed to have the bad storms hit us but, luckily where we were we didn't get anything but a drizzle.  So last night we spent frantically washing all of his clothes, ordering his sister's birthday present (he's possibly going to miss her birthday Tuesday), and getting to bed in order for him to wake up at 4:15.  Needless to say I was not a happy camper hearing that alarm this morning.  They called for 150,000 people without power, lots of tornados, and plenty of damage and injuries.  I could not be happier though that Glenn and the rest of his crew are up there helping.  Here are a few shots of the aftermath:

Sumter Utilities Trucks (Glenn might be in this possibly ha)

Sending up prayers to all of those in NC!

ACM: Aerosmith+Carrie= Magnificent!

For those of you who watched the American Country Music Awards Sunday Night I KNOW all of you saw the amazing performances, but I must say...Steven Tyler & Carrie Underwood rocked Vegas big time!
