What would we do without our friends? Thanks, Helen, foe being such a wonderful friend to Laura!
Laura- I feel your pain. It IS exhausting. I wish I was close enough to watch Nate and the girls for you! I'd do it in a heartbeat! If you get really desperate, hop on a plane! You can stay with us!
Everyone says the first year is really tough. Here's hoping it gets better! Love and hugs!
What would we do without our friends!!! I'm so glad that you have Helen!!! This is tough work!!! And it will get better. As we are further into it, we find ourselves relaxing more and occasionally, I quit thinking about it for a bit!! :) Nate is such a little guy, too!
Sounds like you had a good appointment...isn't that his first A1C after diagnosis?? I would say that's pretty good!!! Good job mom!! Your hard work is paying off!!
What a blessing she is! Good for you!
I've pretty much been it around here for 7 years myself. Sure, I've gotten help every now and then, but not really. Jessi's 9 now and can do most of it herself, but not site changes. We'll be working on that soon I'm sure. The older she is now, the easier it is because she can participate in her own care. I've come to accept that it's been my role and whomever takes over has big shoes to fill! (maybe that's why no one steps up...haha)
Hard as it is to believe, it does get easier. I wouldn't have believed it 7 years ago, but it really does. Not so much with the exhaustion, sorry!
