Type 1 Diabetes...

well. i'm honestly still in shock. not much to blog about at this point. hopefully later, i'll be in a better frame of mind, more rested, less overwhelmed, etc...

the only thing I can comment on so far, is how my heart broke at the bank when the teller offered Andy a sucker and I said, "No, he can't have one." Andy started to cry. My eyes filled up too.

i'm so broken.

my deepest prayer is that God heals him completely. That this "honeymoon" period, where he hardly needs any insulin, would be the beginning of walking away from this ugly disease.

So sorry to hear you guys are having to wrestle with this. I kind of understand what it's like to tell my child she can't have what "normal" kids have, because Hannah is super allergic to gluten.

I have another friend with Type 1, and I emailed my dr. (the one I sent you the phone number to) today to ask him about it. He said there are all kinds of things that can be done for it, especially early on. Even after years of insulin, insulin need can be greatly reduced. Just in case you were thinking of checking out that option.

Hang in there.
