The reception was the true test, how would dinner, drinks and cake go? Would it ruin my night or would I be in range and a dancing fool. I was a dancing fool and had the time of my life!! It was all about balance!! Knowing when to take insulin and when to have a drink or a piece of cake. That sounds crazy and like I had everything planned to the minute but I know my body and have a wife that knows me better then I know myself. Not once did I hear "Your eyes look off, go test" If I did that would have been okay because life is not about being perfect, it is about the moments that teach us about ourself and life. We all make mistakes, if you do it is okay.
That rant is over, time to talk about the honeymoon and how I could play volleyball and keep my blood sugars in range, how I could zip line and have no problems. This isn't me bragging, this is me excited that I trained and prepared myself for all of this ahead of time!! Don't get me wrong I had a blood sugar over 400 twice in a week, that hurts but I know what I did wrong. I also woke up at 60 one morning, again I learned from it and know that I should have some crackers before bed when I'm at 130 when I go to sleep.
My average for the week was 156, think of that what you will but that average allowed me to be me and enjoy every minute of my week with my beautiful new bride!! It also helped that I had a little mother like worker keeping tabs on me at the resort. Day one she saw my pump on the beach and asked how long I have had diabetes, we talked and she got my story. Everyday and every night this woman that worked her butt off for this resort made it a point to come check on me and ask how my blood sugar was doing. The line of the honeymoon was "You're drinking so I know your blood sugar is okay" She knew I liked to reward myself if I was having a good day and in range after dinner.
