MY SON, MY HERO

MY SON, MY HERO
MY SON, MY HERO

MY SON IS MY HERO, MY FRIEND, AND MY INSPIRATION!!

MY HUSBAND CARL WAS DIAGNOSED OVER 5 YEARS AGO WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES. WE LEARNED HOW TO DEAL WITH THAT, THEN MY 6 YEAR OLD SON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH TYPE 1...OCTOBER 10, 2003. I THINK THAT WAS THE VERY WORST DAY OF MY LIFE!! WE HAD TO LEARN EVERTHING ABOUT THIS, TYPE 1 IS MORE RESTRICTIVE THAN TYPE 2 DISEASE. WHEN WE BROUGHT HIM HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL, I WASN'T EVEN SURE WHAT TO DO!! AND MY POOR LIL GUY, PRICKING HIS FINGER ALL DAY, NOT EATING CANDY LIKE HIS LITTLE BROTHER, EATING ON A SCHEDULE...OH BOY!! WELL WE ARE NOW 2 YEARS INTO THIS, AND LIFE IS GREAT! SURE LIVING WITH DIABETES IS HORRIBLE..BUT..YOU LEARN TO DEAL WITH IT. IT'S A ROUTINE LIKE ANYTHING ELSE. HE IS NOW ON A PUMP, AND LOVING EVERY MINUTE OF THAT. HE EATS CANDY LIKE HIS LITTLE BROTHER AJ, PLAYS LIKE OTHER KIDS, HE JUST CHECKS HIS SUGAR. HE HAS GROWN SO QUICKLY, NOW THAT HE IS HEALTHY AND UNDER CONTROL!! HE NEVER EVER LETS ANY ONE GET HIM DOWN ABOUT DIABETES, HE TELLS PEOPLE PROUDLY HE HAS DIABETES! THE WALK IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US, ONE DAY THEY WILL FIND A CURE, AND MY SON WILL BE VERY HAPPY! NO CHILD OR ADULT DESERVES THIS DISEASE. MY SON IS MY HERO, MY FRIEND, AND MY INSPIRATION!! I LOVE HIM VERY MUCH!! IN THE PICTURE CARL IS ON THE RIGHT, AND MY BEAUTIFUL NON DIABETIC SON AJ IS ON THE LEFT
