I just wanted to share that since my son's diagnosis about 8 months ago...we have survived daily injections, rapidly changing ratios, a switch to the pump, Christmas, birthday parties, short and long vacations, amusements parks, water parks, camping, swimming, family reunions, a billion other occasions that require cupcakes and candy, a school carnival...complete with snow cones and popcorn, movie theaters, upset stomachs, a new puppy, and all kinds of different foods. Actually, these are the only things I can think of off the top of my head! To my surprise, we have survived and thrived. My son is a perfectly healthy, normal, and very handsome (had to throw that in there ) young man. Believe me that 8 months ago ( actually 3 to 4 months ago), I would have never imagined that we would have come so far so fast. I know that all of you who have been dealing with this for a while appreciate this "thank God" moment. To everyone who is even newer than we are at this....IT WILL GET BETTER AND YOU WILL BE FINE! Do we mess up? Yep. Are our numbers perfect? Nope. Do I pray for a cure every day of my life? Yep. But, we are fine! I am so happy that we seemed to have made it over that hurdle of being completely overwhelmed all of the time to only being overwhelmed sometimes!
