It's been 2 years....

and whew, we have come a LOOOOONG way! Remember this Diabetes 101

The memories have started flowing.

We sat in those diabetes classes like they were speaking a different language. We were scared to death. It is all here... Information Overload 

Now, it's just part of our lives. We don't like it, but it is, what it is. Some days are far worse than others and that helpless feeling is overwhelming.   Other days are just routine with finger pricks, carb counting and bolusing. Everyday we worry.

And we are tired. Like extremely tired.

Our sweet girl is depending on us to keep her healthy. I can honestly say we are doing our best.

We are still hoping and praying for a cure.  (TEAM LYDIA- March 3, 2013-Walk for a cure)

We are so very, very thankful for insulin. It is amazing and keeps our angel alive.

So today, we are are celebrating that diabetes is part of our lives, rather than something that ruined or destroyed it.


  1. Wow. I can still remember y'all sharing how sick she seemed...and then hearing the news, the diagnosis. Y'all are so brave and you do so well. We continually stand in awe. And way to celebrate! Again, you are brave. And strong. I am so proud of you!

  2. This post melts my heart on so many levels. Y'all are amazing. You are one brave, tough little girl, sweet Lydia!

  3. Can't believe two years! praising God for what has been learned and accomplished in the two years. How tough it's been. Beyond my comprehension. You are one of my heroes. You are supermama. And Lydia, sweet Lydia, what a trooper and brave girl. You help give me fight when I am weary in our own battles. Praying strength and a cure!
