I'm so sick and tired of all the bickering over sugar molecules or whatever the eff is going on, so I'm going to brag about my son instead. He's 7, about to turn 8. Yesterday, we did a 15 mile brisk bike ride and climbed down a canyon and back up again. He pretty much managed his blood sugar himself with occasional bites from granola bars. I'm so darn proud of him how he's not letting his diabetes slow him down one bit. I hope I'm something of a role model to him, but he's definitely my role model when it comes to reacting to adversity. If anything, he's become more athletic since his dx and more aware of his health and how he treats his body. He's my hero.
