A couple of nights ago we attended the JDRF awards banquet in Portland. We weren't sure if we would be able to attend because Bekah had been sick but her fever broke and symptoms were gone by noon. Had she had a tummy bug, we wouldn't have gone. A slight cold with a low grade fever is one thing but tummy bugs and D don't mix well and I would want other families to have the same consideration for us.
It was a nice evening. It still perplexes me that JDRF functions rarely have carb counts on the food. They did do a nice job of keeping it fairly healthy (no pizza). There was a huge veggie tray, meatballs, meat and cheese tray, spring rolls and a few other appetizer type things that are slipping my mind at the moment.
Our team got an award for fund raising and I am now the proud owner of a golden sneaker award. Bekah was so stinkin proud of the team award that she would NOT let go of it all night. We have a friend who is in the process of choosing a pump and I wanted Bekah to show him her pump skin. I tried taking the award out of her hands so she had both free to manipulate the zipper and pouch. Um yeah, I got the look of all looks and she quickly grabbed the award out of my hand as I was retrieving it from her. (My bad) Bekah made me promise that we would hang it on the wall in her room. Done!
Here is a photo of Bekah showing off her team award:
