D-Blog Week - Day 5 / Despite Diabetes


The topic is wonderful today --- things I've done despite diabetes.  I can't wait to read all of the wonderful posts - I'm inspired just thinking about it.  However, Nate is 2 --- he's been dx about a year and a half and although I know he is going to do some completely awesome things in his lifetime --- he hasn't done anything that spectacular just yet.  Don't get me wrong - I already think he is an amazing little boy!  I've said it a million times --- he does NOT let having diabetes slow him down.  EVER! 

Here are few things I thought of while I was waiting for Blogger to come back up:

* In August of last year, Nate was on the jumbotron in NYC because the Diabetes Dude was there flocking the Today show and showing NYC people with diabetes ROCK!

* Nate will turn 3 in June and then start pre-school in August.  Ummm - yea, I'm scared shitless but he's already SUPER excited to go to school just like Emma and Sophie!

* Nate has a special project that we are working on with the Diabetes Dude in July -- I can't wait to post the details!  Exciting!!  Nate's going to be throwing out the 1st pitch at a Rough Riders game in Frisco - - - details to come!

* And really the most important thing is something I've done despite diabetes ---- or maybe because of diabetes - I'VE MADE SOME REALLY FANTASTIC FRIENDS.  Some I've met in real life (IRL) and some I've never met because they live all over the United States and really all over the world.  It's wonderful to know so many people that know what I mean when I say ---- SAME!
