I've missed the last few Wednesdays, which means I have also missed Wassup Wednesday. I am not exactly sure where my week goes these days. I have even forgot to enter like the last FOUR Sugar Bolus Giveaway's... HELLO... FREE STUFF...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???

Speaking of Sugar Bolus... Check out this weeks giveaway, hosted by the beautiful Jen @ I am your Pancreas.

Anywho... I'm sitting here, it's 2am and I can't sleep for the second night in a row. SO, seeing as I missed "Wazzup Wednesday" once again... I figured I would give "Sum it up Saturday" a whirl and see how it goes.

Hey, I have come up with some good shit a 2am when I can't sleep. Remember Dear Juicy Juice?

And, if all goes well, maybe I will create a fabulous "Sum it up Saturday" logo. Just in case Wednesday sneaks by me again.

-First up... by popular demand(aka: 1 or 2 people asked me) I am going to share the story of the finger in my last post.

It was a dark and stormy night... lol, I'm just kidding.

Actually, it was a total blond, sleep deprived, trying to multi-task, finger in the wrong place at the wrong time moment.

You see, I was filling up the cartridge with the liquid gold so that we could do a site change. We've(aka me) been having some bubble issues lately and I was flicking repeatedly at said cartridge while mindlessly looking for something sturdier than my finger to use; so I could give those relentless, stubborn ass bubbles a good whack.

Unfortunately for my finger... I missed the cartridge and flicked the point of the large ass needle instead. OUCH!

That dang needle slice a cut on my finger that is just shy of a half inch long. Seriously! I know it doesn't look that bad in the picture, but it actually wrapped around the side. I'm lucky I didn't loose a digit :} (J/K on that last part)

It hadn't occurred to me, but you could cause some serious pain with those suckers(why are they so big anyways?).

So that's my story... in all its glory.

-Another thing that I have been wanting to share for a while is the Life for a Child Campaign. There are several ways you can help save the life of a child with T1D. You can read all about it by visiting Wendy at Candy Hearts.

-For the past week or so, I have been trying to become a better "twit". I think I have it half figured out. This all came about because I wanted to keep up with JDRF Government Day in D.C.
 Hallie had the chance to attend the event; along with several respected PWD bloggers. Keep your eyes on The Princess and the Pump to hear all about Hallie's experience.

AND... if you are a fellow "twit", be sure to stop by and say hello to me @rockinDmom.

Another pretty cool thing I did this week was tune into the Diabetes Social Med Live on Blog Talk Radio.

To learn what DSMA Live is all about... go HERE.

In short... questions are asked that spiral off into conversations and stories. I laughed a little and cried a little while listening to some of them. It was really neat to hear the voices of some of the PWD bloggers I follow. They rarely sound like I imagine :)

One exciting moment of the show was when Justice called in. He is one super sweet kid. Very mature and polite. Not sure if you know this, but Justice holds a special place with us because he shares a dx date with Justin. His Mama's not so bad either ;p (lol).

While all this is going on... all of the listeners are chatting away with their own thoughts and stories... It was a great experience and I cant wait to tune in next Thursday.

Well that's it for this post...

Until next time :)

Learning Twitter with my pals has been fun! I LOVED the live blog was totally AWESOME! Feeling blessed to have friends like you to share these experiences with!

PS...Try to lay off those needles, okay?

Unknown said...

Man...I need to be a TWIT too. I just cannot seem to dive in.

Bummer on the needle Lora. The pic looked pretty gruesome. Did the bubble budge?

I am liking Sum It Up Saturdays. A new banner/button is called for I think.

Jen said...

Thanks for the shout out Lora! I need to get on the twitter thang of these days!

Heidi / D-Tales said...

Ouch! My finger hurt just reading your post.

I agree with Reyna. Let's see that Sum It Up Saturday banner/button/logo. :)

Amanda said...

I've poked myself with those needles a couple of times's no good!

Meri said...

I'm calling for a Saturday Logo. I think it would be awesome.

I want to be a twit. I really do...but my heart still belongs to facebook. :)

Lorraine of "This is Caleb..." said...

Ah! Look at me over there! Heehee! Thanks. I was just about to type my comments and was like - Ah!.

Anyhoo...I have a scar in my - ahem - middle finger - two scars, actually, from when the Pod filler needle went right through the tip of my finger. That was well over a year ago - closer to two. I still have the marks.

Hope you are healing. I wonder how those filler needles compare to the needles people used to inject insulin not so long ago - ya' know - the ones that needed to be boiled. Eek.

I'm so glad to know what happened - and so glad you didn't lose that digit!!

I like you - I think your funny! Wanna be friends? :)
