The Friday Six: Catching Up.
Hi! I still write here. I write a blog about things here. This is my things blog, with diabetes stuff and other times not so much diabetes stuff. Welcome to it. (My brain is not entirely tuned in this morning. Working on it.) Coffee is helping, but it may take a few days to kick in.
Yesterday was a long day of traveling and I can say with certainty that my five year old kid is managing her jet lag better than I am. (And we, as a family, were all up at 5 am and confusingly chipper about it.) Thankfully, I really love to fly.
The wifi access while we were traveling was majorly woofy, allowing me to connect for brief minutes to let emails load and then not letting me reply to them, so my inbox is a muddled mess of things I’ve read and spazzed out about but haven’t had a chance to reply to yet. I missed a lot of really excellent Diabetes Blog Week posts.
And this one (the photo, once you see it, is un-see-able)
And this, about the personification of Sugar.
A huge THANK YOU to Karen for bringing the DOC together for the sixth year running. I love Diabetes Blog Week, and she works so hard to keep it fresh, engaging, organic, and inviting. You rock, Karen. (#meowmeowmeow)
And in non-Diabetes Blog Week linky sort of things, I wanted to make sure I share, and reshare, the PLAID Journal. Martin will be contributing a little Q&A here about the inception and development of his journal in the coming weeks, but in lieu of that you can read his post about it here. His work is amazing, and as a contributor and a member of his editorial board, I am really proud to be part of it. You can view issue 1 here.
Here’s a great update on glucose-responsive insulin.
I learned quite a bit about the type 2 experience from Brian’s post.
Oh, some photos from our trip? I have a ton.
I feel like I missed a lot of work in the last week, with spotty Internet access. Woofy wifi is not my favorite, but I can’t complain too much because the distractions of traveling were worth it. Happy to have gone, but very happy to be home.
