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."
