A lot of people ask me what’s involved in caring for Emma now that she is an insulin-dependent diabetic. So, I thought I would put it together for you.
Consistency is the key.
She gets her glucose level checked twice a day, gets insulin twice a day, and eats twice a day. At approximately the same time. Every day. There is a window, but it’s not very big, so I have become much more schedule-conscious. I was always regular, but that has improved twenty-fold!
Then I flip back her ear to locate a good “spot” to prick for blood
I collect the blood and get a number.
Then she gets to eat!
I think she secretly loves this because she gets a TON of attention that the boys don’t.
She’s worth it of course…my little brown dog!
