in the hospital

Here is our little sweetie pie 2.  Diagnosed on April Fool's Day.  2013.  almost exactly the same age as his sister's diagnosis.  (two years prior).  He understood enough that he DID NOT want diabetes!!!  He didn't want shots or to have his carbs counted.  He didn't want IV's or feel sick to his stomach.  It still breaks my heart.  People say, "isn't it easier this time, since you know what it is now?"  I say "no".  Because I know what it is, it is even that more heart breaking.

  1. Aww. Your son is so cute. Being diagnosed with diabetes is really not easy. It changes your life forever. It’s really heartbreaking to see your kids as they are being diagnosed with a disease, which changes their entire lives. It’s like they’re being forced to grow up without their consent. They cannot simply be young, carefree and innocent like other kids. But it is your responsibility as their mother to make them feel as though everything is still alright. I’m sure you'll find the strength to do that. This is going to be the start of a long journey.
