    Rock on Lorraine and Caleb! I don’t remember that much openness and Q&A about diabetes between my mother and I when I was his age (then again, we had 3x/day urine tests, not CGM’s). I also would have a hard time saying “I love you”, particularly where others could hear (I still do for some reason), even though my mother is one of the most magnificent people in my world. I love the openness and confidence!

    And Amy, Mazal Tov to you, your daughter, and the rest of the family!

    This is so very true, and so very beautiful. Lorraine, you are such an inspiration as a friend and fellow D Mama. I am thrilled we have met, sad that we had to meet this way.
    Your care for Caleb and your love for him shines through everything. Thank you for making this, it’s marvelous!

    And Amy, why is there not a D-parent on the DiabetesMine team? Lorraine would be wonderful in this respect. Hope you consider adding a parent to the wonderful people you have there.

      Excellent – Lorraine has clearly been to my house – made me cry and laugh at the same time. Thanks for asking her to contribute.

      And please please do add a D-mom to your team – those of us who mother children who are PWDs are intimately involved 24/7/365 in helping our children stay well now – and grow into adults who practice the excellent self care required to live well with diabetes. There are probably lots of us among your readers.

    Almost makes me sad that I wasn’t a diabetic as a kid.

    Whenever I ask my son “What does your Dexcom say?” My husband always replies from somewhere in the house with “BEEP when I’m high, and BEEP when I’m low” lol. Loved the video. Very familiar routine.

    thanks for posting this video. Someone really knows what I go through every day. The only thing is I’m (the Mom) a diabetic also. Sometimes we check blood sugars together. I’m waiting for the day when she says “Mom, how do you feel?”

    Video was excellent. THANKS!!

    [...] The range – OH THE RANGE! It is unbelievable. Everything is different with the range. As the caregiver, the controls are now in my hands, where they should be. This allows Caleb a little freedom not to have to think about his BG constantly or have me constantly asking him what DexCom says, (as used to be the case, evidenced by this video). [...]
