My wife worked an evening job until 9pm and was in bed by 10.... the baby got up at 12 and nursed twice by 3am and then wanted to play (the baby)..... played for an hour while my wife did the dishes and cleaned up (just noticing this) ... and I say something mean.
I am 44 (mg/dl..... not years)
I am also a lucky man
(this was written at 4:03am so I wouldn't forget it in the morning.... baby is crying again)

Maybe I should just get used to an after dinner Advil...

I've been inspired a bit recently by the community - my friend, Heather, has gotten some of the school nurses to get involved and do a multi-month school district wide diabetes fundraiser - that will end with May being Diabetes Awareness month. She's always wanted to do something like this but I think Triabetes pushed her over the edge ...she has a son and husband that are both Type 1. Here we go. They are taking it to the principals and district. As it unfolds, I'll report.
I'm going to eat like a fiend over the next week and will try to run it all off.

I guess I should set the stage. My name is Steve and I am a Type 1 Diabetic and have been since I was 10 (so 25 years). I've kept pretty good control (just lucky on that front - not due to excess effort) and I was always kind of active - so when my neighbor moved in (also a Type 1) and somehow talked me into being part of a group (now called Triabetes - see www.triabetes.org) of Type 1 Diabetics that will train for and complete in the 2008 Ironman Wisonsin. I wasn't a runner, I was a terrible swimmer, and I was slow on the bike.... so I figured, "why not?"
This blog will be a record of my path through this process.
More to come.... as I figure out what a blog is....
