We would chat on line from time to time and whenever I had a question for her, I knew she'd have straight answer for me.
Meri amazes me in many ways. Not just because she's a mom to four sons, three of which have type 1, which is quite an amazing feat in itself!
And not just because Meri has this amazing ability to pull all types of McGyver moves when it comes to insulin pumps, bolus & basal rates and meters of all kinds!
Nor is it because her blog makes either laugh or cry, every time I read it.
Also, it's not just because she always makes me learn & let's me in on what life is like for a parent of three cwds.
And lastly, it's not just because her life mirrors my mom's own life raising three daughters with type 1 in the Diabetes Dark Ages.
It's a combo of all of the above, with more than just a dash of moxie & a heaps of love and friendship thrown in for good measure, that makes Meri both amazing & fantastical in my mind.
I finally had the chance to meet Meri this past April in LA @ the #MedtronicDAF and you know what, she's even more better in real life!!!
So when Meri asked if I'd guest host ( I mean post,) and be one of her bloggers @ OurDiabeticLife 's Blogger Polooza extravaganza, I jumped at the chance!
Today, my blog post can be found taking the stage for day 3 of Our Diabetic Life's Blogger Polooza: http://www.ourdiabeticlife.com/2011/06/guest-blogger-polooza-day-3-kelly.html
So head on over and check it out - AND ROCK ON !!
