Great post GaGa! And no, that is not too much to ask. Your family will continue to handle the daily struggles of life with "d" with grace and tenacity...it shows clearly through your post and Laura's regular written words.
The first year is tough. Laura, I admire that you are up and blogging so early on. I wish that I had found this outlet earlier in our "story". I was pretty messed-up for a good year and a half after Joe was diagnosed. I think if I had found all of you lovely ladies earlier on, I would not have had such a rough start with our life with "d". Joe's Diaversary is this Saturday...LOVE YOU.
I am like a blubbering mess!!! You have a very blessed family and one of the best moms EVER!
Gaga as Nate gets older you will be able to bake again. My mother-in-law is the same way. ALWAYS baking cakes, brownies and cookies with the kids.
She stopped at first, but has started again now that Justin is not all that concerned with only having "some".
Here flow the tears again. I am overjoyed to know that there are people in this young childs life that are taking the time to truly understand t1d. I am thankful knowing that eventually baking will resume and his memories of GaGa's will be of sweet smells and an extra bolus for more pancakes. I know the sorrow and the difficulty as we're there. I also have seen my mom cry over how difficult it is to see this happen to your grandchild and the effects on your child. We're all lucky to have family like you. Keep praying for I too believe in that cure.
No, not too much to ask. Not too much at all!
Great post, GaGa!
Thank you for being a wonderful Mom and Grandmother to Laura and her family. I know from experience how wonderful it is to have parents who love and support you and your family on this hard road. You ARE an angel, you know!
And I LOVE your name! My mom is Mimi and my DAD is Gaga at our house!
Love and hugs!
Beautiful post, GaGa. Thank you for sharing your words with us...your love, support and special pancakes will give Nate all the love that he needs in life from his GaGa and he will treasure all of the memories that you make for him, even if they are filled with a few less cookies then you imagined :)
Just a Mom
I AM a wife.
