April Fools


April Fools!

There’s nothing like a 4:00 am hypo on April Fools’ Day.

I got up with the Grown Son and helped him raise his numbers.

He went back to bed.

I can never sleep after one of those middle-of-the-night scares.

I put up some coffee and unpeeled fruit stickers from all over the kitchen.

There’s nothing like a disturbing diabetes episode to put the fruit sticker flinging into perspective.

I guess I’m going to need a new Inciting Incident.

Type One Diabetes


Both of the Grown Sons have type one diabetes.

They are at high risk for coronavirus.

Of course I am worried.

One of them has come home to endure his social isolation with us.

He’s been working remotely.

Cabin fever has set in because he hasn’t left his apartment in ages.

It looks like he’s going to stay for awhile.

He brought some food.

This makes me very happy.

Not that we need the supplies.

But it shows me that he shops.

And keeps fresh food in his apartment.

If only he had brought some toilet paper…
