Too Darn Hot Part 2

Look over to the right and you will see the heading LABELS. Look below LABELS to find the word ARIZONA (1). Click on ARIZONA (1) to see what I wrote in August of 2007 when it was this hot in Virginia. Then ask yourself what colors of the rainbow do you think of when it is HOT, HOT, HOT! I think of shades of red, orange and bright yellow like these flowers here.

On another note let me add that I will learn this coming Monday how to give glucose shots in case Jack has another very low blood sugar that renders him unable to give himself a shot. Oh, what fun! When our little life threatening event was over Sunday morning Alan, Leah, and I all agreed that Jack should have had a piece of that chocolate cake at the Saturday evening party. Then he wouldn't have had low blood sugar. But he may have had very high blood sugar.
Diabetes is a 24 hour tightrope balancing act between food intake and amount of body activity expended. The unknowns on the tightrope are what cause the falls. Unknowns like when the body is using up extra energy fighting disease or heat or cold or stress. The stress of being outside in 95 degree very humid weather was the culprit on Saturday.
