Sunday 5/16 - Dream a little dream - life after a cure. To wrap up Diabetes Blog Week, let’s pretend a cure has been found. We are all given a tiny little pill to swallow and *poof* our pancreases are back in working order. No side effects. No more insulin resistance. No more diabetes. Tell us what your life is now like. Or take us through your first day celebrating life without the Big D. Blog about how you imagine you would feel if you no longer were a Person With Diabetes.
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?
