Invasion of the Test Strips…………RUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dusty Test StripOh my gosh.  They are everywhere.  You cannot get away.  You cannot hide.  Just when you think that you have completed the task and there are no more to be found, they come back to haunt you.

You may run; you may try to distract; you may even hide your eyes; and you may clean the house from top to bottom……..4 times.  But they still find a way to creep up and show themselves.

They are……The Test Strips.

I recently could not believe that one of my dogs was running around the house with the strip attached to him like a tick.  He tried to shake it off-but it would not let go, no matter how hard he tried.  He was very grateful when I ended her suffering and took it off her.

I think the most interesting place I have ever found a used one is in my refrigerator, which was a while ago, but I remember saying to myself, “Now how the heck did that end up in here.”

Missed garbage pails, all over their bedroom, by the drain in the tub, in the drawers, in the wash, in the car, and even on the dog; these test strips have made their way into strange places.

But to be honest, for the over 50,000 times (that’s correct-50,000 times) the two of them have checked their blood glucose numbers (and surely Kaitlyn has the vast majority of these) I am grateful every time I find/see one because I know what they are for and glad they are doing what is needed.

Where have you found a test strip?

Until we find that cure, I’ll take finding one over not seeing one; any day of the week.
