Missing in action.

I have even more busy than usual for the past month or two. We have had two birthday's and have organised a kitchen reno on top of the normal things to keep a family of six running.

We have taken some progress photos of the kitchen, so I will share those soon. I need to get them on the computer first. Actually getting the kitchen put in seems to be easier than picking all the appliances and features. There are endless choices (some are out of the reach of our budget) for cupboards, colours, benchtops, drawers, taps, sinks. You get the idea.

One of the things that has happened in the last month is on the diabetes front. Something that added just a bit extra stress each week was heading to the hospital to get DD#4 F's oral medication. We get a suspension for the ease of given an accurate dose and being able to change the dose easily as she grows. The hospital will only give the suspension a shelf life of 1 week as they don't have test data for for any longer. My local pharmacy starting compounding a month or two ago so I thought I would see if they could make it for us. Long story short. They can and have. We are on to week 4 of our first bottle and all seems to be going fine with her BGLs. They only problem is the cost. I put in claim to our private health insurance this week but I don't know if it will be covered. It costs more than 10 times the hospital phamacy price to get it from the local phamacy BUT it very convenient. The jury is still out if we will be able to continue to get it locally long term.

DH has just gotten back from his bible study and he wants me to tell you all how special he is. DH is special.
