I knew I was running low on insulin syringes. It had been a couple months of daily shots afterall. So when I checked on Monday and we were completely out, I went right away to the pharmacy to get more. They were out but could get them in the following morning. I wasn't too happy about this cuz multiple trips to the pharmacy with three kids (or even just 2) is not easy, plus Bryce needs his insulin! Luckily I found two syringes with our testing kit. Perfect, that would get us through dinner and breakfast then our syringes would be in. At least that was what I thought until I got a phone call the next afternoon saying that our order did not arrive! I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I had already scoured the house looking for extra syringes to no avail. Yes, I could go to a different pharmacy but what a pain! I then realized that Jaden's classmate who also has diabetes, may have extra syringes. I called her mom and got her just before she was headed out for pick up. She brought me three syringes. What a life saver! I am very fortunate to have a family that knows what we are going through because they have been here themselves. In the future, I will make sure to get my refill well before I run out!!
