Usually I substitute Splenda for sugar in most recipes and bolus accordingly (also T1, but on the pump). Also, no sugar added treats such as homemade applesauce tend to be nice too, they still have carbs, but it's significantly less than the store bought variety. Some diabetics respond well to homemade low sugar ice cream, but it really depends on the person because I've also seen diabetics get really low from trying to eat ice cream and giving themselves insulin too soon (foods high in protein/fat generally release the sugar into your blood stream slower than foods high in carbs and low in proteins/fat....but it really depends on the person).
This reminds me of a short story I read years ago! When I read it, I didn't think Axolotls were real, haha. http://www.cis.vt.edu/modernworld/d/axolotl.html I believe this is the whole story (in English). It was originally written in Spanish by the Argentinean writer Julio Cortazar. If you're curious, I believe the English title of the book it's in is called End Game or something similar
That dress looks amazing! I was going to say that I think the dress would look awesome in a really deep brown with a taupe/beige underlay or maybe a contrasting color but red or silver as an underlay would look really nice and would be more fitting to your original idea
The quilts and the blanket are really really cute, but the sentiment behind them makes these items truly amazing. Sometimes when I read posts like this one, where someone is selflessly helping someone else, it makes me think the world is an ok place.
