4 Years with D

I cannot believe it has been 4 years.

In PICU, IV's in both arms and neck. :-(

It hurts to say that my 5 1/2 year old (that 1/2 is a BIG deal right now) has had Diabetes for 4 years.

That is almost his whole life.

I am trying my best to not think of the what ifs that could have happened had we not taken him to the ER that day.

I thank God every day that He has allowed us to take care of The Superhero while we are here on this Earth.

In TX, enjoying his new Star Wars pump/Dex pouch (from TooSweetBoutique).

And when I told The Superhero the other day that his 4 year Diabetes anniversary was coming up, he said "Wow, that's not that long.".

I was kind of surprised.

But to him, I guess, 4 years doesn't seem like that big of a deal.

His perspective is what helps me get through.

And the cake. We are having cake. That will help too.

Here's to 4 years of health and happiness with Diabetes!
