    It has been exactly one year since we got the official dx of T1 Diabetes for Connor. On December 17, 2007 our lives changed forever. We have come so far in a year.

    Connor amazes me daily with his ability to just accept things the way they are and his ability to live his life to the fullest despite a disease that requires so much of him.

    Making the switch to the insulin pump in April was one of the best decisions we have made in the past year. I overheard Connor telling his little friend just the other day "If you ever get diabetes you have to get a pump. It is so much better than shots. Just think it's only one poke every 3 or 4 days intead of a bunch of pokes everyday."

    I'm sorry that you have to 'celebrate' this anniversary. But it sounds like you've done a great job so that's worth celebrating.

    Congratulations on a year of good health! It is amazing how much all of us learned in that first year (and then how much we continue to learn as our kids grow up).

    One year older but so much wiser ;) Here's to hoping that you can focus on how much you've learned and how well you've done. :cwds:
