World Diabetes Day

There is not a lot to say about our World Diabetes Day day . . .
I had big plans for all of us to wear our shirts all day and run all over town, telling people all about Type 1. We were also supposed to meet up with Joanne, Fred and Elise have lunch and let all of the kids play in their awesome shirts.  Alas, it was not meant to be . . .

I got the Houston Five up and dressed in our shirts (except for Sophie) to head out to Sophie's blastball game.  So far, so good.  I noticed while we were at the game that Nate had these little red dots (they looked like ant bites) all over the left side of his body.  I had noticed 1 or 2 while dressing him for the day but at Sophie's game they were multiplying!!  So, change of plans!!  I called and made an appointment with Nate pediatrician and had to cancel our lunch plans with my new favorite friends!  Boo!

Well, Nate and I went to the ped's office and waited and waited and waited . . .we waited for well over an hour to see the on-call physician.  (See pics to the right for self-portraits taken while  we were waiting) 
She told us she had no idea what was going on.  She said they looked like ant bites - "yes, they do" I said "but they seem to be multiplying by the moment without an ant in site."  Hmmmm . . . well, maybe he has bed bugs.  WHAT?  REALLY?  GROSS!!  Nate does not have bed bugs and if he did I doubt that he put them in his pocket and took them with him to the game.  Seriously!  Ok, then maybe it's rash of some sort. YA THINK??  She was really no help whatsoever!

So, by the time we got out of there it was nap time and we were both exhausted.  We went home, took a nap, and then just hung out at the house.  That's it - that's how we spent our day.

The only exciting part of the day is that our PJs For A Cure jammies arrived and I got to wear my new blue circle jammies to bed.  Woo-Hoo!   This morning my husband and my dad both headed out of town (for work) for the week so the kids and I went over to spend some time with my mom in our jammies.  Here are the awesome pics of me in my new jammies which I LOVE!! 

Maybe next year all of the online D mommas can get together and paint the town BLUE.

First off...I LOVE the jammies! I've told everyone I know about the site...I still need to blog about it though!

And isn't that the way life is with little ones...truely unperdictable. I'm sorry your day didn't turn out the way you had planned, but it looks like it ended with smiles, so chalk it up as a success!

I need to catch up on that...cuz I want Santa to bring me a pair :)

Glad to hear the rash wasn't anything too serious, but sorry that you didn't get answers.

Oh, well...the shirts were cute anyway!

those jammies are awesome . Laura is Nate getting chicken pox ? sometimes I know they start out like ant bites only they get bigger in a couple hrs time . wow cant believe that dr that is just sad she could have at least run some kind of skin test to rule out other things . Oh well glad the day turned out alright and it ended well . God bless hope Nate is okay .

Hey girlies -

I still don't know what the bumps are but they are going away and they never bothered him at all. No itching or anything. They were mostly on his arm, leg and a couple on his face and ear but none on the trunk of his body. So crazy!

BTW, I love the jammies! They are some comfy I stayed in them all day yesterday!!!! :-)
