Sorry Vincent and Sarah are puking that is never fun!!

and sorry Aiden got a wound! also no good but glad he is fine!
DH and I spoke about this earlier and decided to go this route. Realistically, if this episodes are low blood sugar, we need the ability to test on the spot. The meters and strips are cheaper than I expected (for sporadic testing anyway). Between these episodes and my family history, I feel much better having a meter in the house.
