Your Favorites: February 2013

The most popular blog posts from February 2013 are:


The Diabetic Problem

DexCom G4 Platinum: Second Look

Opsite Flexifix

New OmniPod Pictures and Information


Meanwhile over on FaceBook. These two posts were seen by more eyes then all the rest:

Yes or No: Do you get your children a flu shot? Why, Why not?


Me: Why are your clean clothes on the floor?

Arden: I had a sensitive moment. When you have diabetes sometimes your blood sugar gets low and you have sensitive moments. 

Me: I see

Arden: I had one on Saturday and it made me pissy.

Me: {silence}


The post that received the most 'likes' was a picture.


Thank you for making February 2013 the most popular in the history of Arden's Day. This blog will be celebrating it's six year anniversary this summer and the number of people that read Arden's story in February is greater then the number of people that read Arden's Day, in it's entirety, over the first three months that it was online. I can't believe how much Arden's Day has grown, and it's all because of you.

Last night my new book was number one on the Amazon Hot New Releases list in the Fatherhood category (U.S.) for over six hours and number three on the same list in the UK. I was so proud (I called my mom) and simultaneously so incredibly overwhelmed by the support that our community gives to one another. It is staggering and a testament to why the DOC is so strong and helpful to the people that are a part of it. I'm proud to be a member of this group and genuinly touched by the love that it has shown me, my family, the book and this blog that I adore.
