Diabetes anniversary number 6.

Today is the day we found out Fisher has diabetes.

It was the very same Monday, the Monday before Thanksgiving.

Gosh, we did not know what our new life would be. And we also did not know that it would still be good, that we would learn, manage, rise above, find a new normal.

If you haven't read about our diabetes story, go HERE.

Today is just a normal day for us now, which means this:

I was up twice checking blood sugars last night, but during one of them I actually thought to myself, wow, it's been awhile since I've had to get up twice in one night. Also, no school today, so we could all sleep in a bit.

Lots of blood sugar checks during the day - before breakfast, mid-morning, before lunch. Lots of insulin given, and we are so thankful for the pump now.

Lots of food eaten, gosh this boy can eat.

Lots of playing outside (and me trying to manage low blood sugars because of it, but also wanting him to be out there because he loves it and he is so strong and healthy and happy being outside so much).

Lots of hugs and snuggles on this warmish day off.

Looking forward to Turkey Day.

Just so thankful for a healthy boy (and my healthy girl and husband!).

Diabetes will never go away. No, he won't grow out of it. But we hope for a cure in his lifetime.
