Just when we thought that we had life under control, our 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Two years later, our son was diagnosed too. Juvenile diabetes. A chronic disease. Not caused by eating too much sugar but by their bodies no longer making its own insulin. They require lots of blood checks and insulin shots. If we do everything right, the day may still not go according to plan. Our overall theme, is that God is in control!

thank you to donations from our readers and animas' financial assistance program, our little guy is now using a new animas ping pump as of yesterday!! so far so good! He is still not happy about having diabetes and still at times states, "I do not have diabetes!". But I'm sure soon he will adjust to no longer having shots every time he eats and twice at dinner for his lantus shot. He picked blue and a blue sleeve and custom ordered a pump bag with teddy bears. (As you can tell by his shirt, he loves teddy bears). Thanks again to all who helped! He is now 11 months into living with type 1 diabetes. no fun but surviving.
