#5 - Invisible Diabetes #NHBPM







I was going to go with the prompt today but it's actually 11:45 PM on Friday night and I'm tired.  I got through 1/2 of my post and changed my mind when I saw this picture on my phone . . . 







Diabetes is often called an invisible disease which I understand because when Nate looks like this . . . 






all you see is a precious little 3-year old boy.  Most people would never know that he has diabetes or anything else for that matter.  This is the little boy that I want you to see but please don't forget the little boy that I see at home has 2 life saving medical devices attached to him at all times.  His insulin pump infuses a life-saving and potentially fatal man-made insulin through his little body.  If his pump malfunctions it quickly becomes a life or death situation. 









Diabetes Awareness Month means a lot to me because Diabetes is NOT invisible to me.

Oh but what a cute tushie he has! I wonder if I'd get the same response if I posted a picture of mine... ;)

Ok I almost choked at Elizabeths comment.

Great post my love, people don't see all we do. The battle scars of it all. The neverendingness of it.

Love that tush though ;)
