Whelp I survived Sandy, though not untouched. In a forty eight hour span we received four feet of snow, lost power and all forms of communication.
My brother and his family came and spent the past three days with my daughter and I as they had no way to heat their home so there were seven of us in a home built for three. I didn't mind though, it was nice having my baby nephew here, but the other two kids I wanted to hang from the ceiling fan with duct tape by the end of it.

Somehow on the first day my Glucose Meter vanished and so I've been unable to test and won't be able to get a replacement till power is restored to my doctor's office. Since we were unable to cook proper meals I've been eating the junk I use to just in smaller portions, I dread to see my numbers when I'm finally able to test again…not to mention I'm scheduled for my first post diagnosis A1c next week

I hope you have your power back now, or will very soon, I was just listening to the news that approx 60% have power back, praying for you!

Hang in there and do the best you can with what you've got. Best wishes to you and your family.

Maybe it won't be as bad as you dread. After all the exercise of your patience in not duct taping the kids and hunting for your meter it might have helped your bg.
