A few weeks ago as I was working I heard a seemingly familiar beeping behind me.
I instinctively asked The Superhero to come over so I could check Dexie.
I wasn't really paying attention and just assumed that was the beeping I was hearing. Of course, I usually recognize the "beep, beep" for a high, and the "beeeep, beeeep, beeeep" for a low or dropping.
So, this time when The Superhero came over to me to show me Dexie, I expected one of these messages. To my surprise, there was NO message on Dexie and his BG was fine. I thought that I must have just been hearing things and went back to working.
Then I heard it again. This time I checked the pump. No alerts. Weird. Back to working again.
Then I heard it again. What? What is that darn beeping!? Then it hit me. It was The Superhero's Leapster Explorer video game! Whatever game he was playing had beeping in it.
I think it is cRaZy how a little beeping can instantly make me think "diabetes". I also think it is interesting how when I ask The Superhero to let me see Dexie, he just automatically comes over to show me.
I find it interesting how as D Mamas (and dads or PWD) are just wired to think this way.
Our brains are wired to "think" diabetes.
Our ears are wired to "hear" diabetes too.
