I too have thought this in the past like most of you. I thought, no, I know we were given a miracle when Andy was able to come off of insulin. But then we got the news that he was developmentally delayed, possible autism, and later sensory processing disorder. In some ways that has been a harder diagnosis for me than the diabetes. Every day, the older and stronger he gets, the harder it is to control his tantrums and sensory overload responses. And the worse part about this is we know it's related to the genetic mutation, but being one of the first and youngest to transition, we don't have a clue how it will turn out in the end. But I try to move on and thank God for my 2 miracles that I have every day. I don't worry quite as much about my children having severe lows like most T1 children. I don't have to worry about insulin or shots or pumps. Some days I think I would trade the sensory issues and developmental delays for a neurotypical diabetic kid. But then Andy kisses me and tells me he loves me and that's enough for my heart today. Who knows what tomorrow will bring. By the way, you T1 parents ROCK!
