...as in I'M low. Grace's supplies are low, not her number.
My cupboards are sparse. This is my kitchen cabinet where I keep all her stuff.
Top shelf: candy, glucagon (freshly replaced and no longer expired), spare meters, 4 boxes (4 BOXES!) of syringes from our MDI days, pump manuals
Middle shelf: ginormous binder holding all Grace's medical paperwork, insurance crap, prescriptions, flex spending, blah, blah, blah; insulin bottle travel cases, ketosticks (which we never use - I think they're from her diagnosis), glucose tabs
Bottom shelf: blood ketone strips (right now the only thing I'm flush with), test strips, alcohol swabs, pump cartridges, infusion sets, uni-solve
I haven't reordered yet - I'll probably wait till I have one box of cartridges and sets left. There's 10/box, I change her site every 2 days (her numbers start to go up when we try to stretch it any longer), so one box should get us about 20 days. Plenty of time for a new shipment to come in. We don't need insulin, but the test strips need to be called in now.
I like it better when the cabinet's full. It gives me a weird sense of satisfaction.
I don't have that now.
I feel low.
