October 29 - 2015 - No Ifs, Ands, or...



In the quest to find new insulin injection sites, remember the butt or buttocks or bum or behind.  Most of us would think that injecting there would require another pair of hands.  Not my late DH.  He was amazingly agile.  He could twist himself around at the waist with remarkable ease and jab himself in his nether region -- one side or the other -- not far from the hip.

This month, in my quest to find new places to stitch, I too turned to the hip area.  Because this is a two-dimensional piece of work, I couldn't literally make marks on its behind, but I did manage these;

Hip 1

Hip 2

And the work continues...

  1. When I look at the photo of the needle in the fabric, it really brings home the fact that your husband had to put a needle in himself on a regular basis. I've had to give myself a few injections over the years......a very few......and the injection site is always tender. I can't imagine doing that on a regular basis.
