1st let me start by saying - I am reading, reading, reading all the blog posts and loving them. I've had to start reading them on Google Reader on my phone and I have not figured out a way to leave a comment. So, please forgive my lack of comments this week. This is a lot of blogging and a lot of reading - Holy Guacamole!
Now on to the post at hand . . .
Wow! A Cure? Hmmm . . .
You would think this would be a simple post - right? It's not. I think it is because although I hope and pray for a cure I don't allow myself to actually think that it could happen. Not because I don't want a cure but more because I can't spend my time pining for a cure when I have a busy life to lead taking care of 3 amazing children - - - one of which has diabetes.
BUT . . . if I allow myself to go there for one minute here is what I see:
A LITTLE BOY THAT WILL LIVE A LONG LIFE WITH NO COMPLICATIONS, NO MORE SHOTS, NO MORE FINGER STICKS - - - A LITTLE BOY THAT WILL GROW UP AND LIVE A LONG, HAPPY, HEALTHY LIFE WITH NO MORE WORRY. NO MORE HIGHS. NO MORE LOWS. NO MORE DIABETES.
A HAPPY MOMMY THAT WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE DAY HER SON WAS DIAGNOSED BUT FOCUS NOW ON THE DAY HE WAS CURED. OH HAPPY DAY!
And on that note . . . won't you please visit our JDRF Walk for a Cure fund-raising page by clicking here and donate so that we can find cure in Nate's lifetime?
Don't forget to SAVE the DATE to WALK with NATE!
Laura,I was searching the omnipod and stumbled on your sight...I am a mother of two beautiful girls and both are type 1 diabetics. My husband and I are a tag team but usually both end up awake at night...It is rough at times but I have faith that there is a cure and we are waiting for the time our children receive it...My youngest was the first to get diagnosed at age 18 months, she is now 6. My oldest was diagnosed at age 8 and is now 11. We are not uesing a pump and both girls get three shots a day...and of corse pricks throughout the day and night continuously...I love the blog sight..It is good for us to vent, laugh and cry together..and of corse to share things that work and dont work..ideas..etc. Love the validation, makes me feel not so quite alone on the three a.m. nights making sure they dont go low or getting them down so they dont stay high..(even sounds crazy)..lol I am blessed..Karen from Angleton, Texas.
Just a Mom
I AM a wife.
I AM the mom of 3 wonderful children.
I AM my son's pancreas.
