Three years ago our lives were turned upside down. What was supposed to be a routine well-child appointment with minor concerns about a few weird symptoms turned into a three-day hospitalization and a T1D diagnosis.
But here we are, three years later, thriving. Going into this anniversary, I was feeling some sadness and was fully prepared to blog about it. But as I sit today typing this post, the primary feeling is that of gratitude – for excellent care V receives, the resources and tools we have to manage diabetes, the support of our family and friends, and the amazing resilience V has shown from day one.
Our first diaversary was a non-event because we were busy with life, which is a good thing! We made up for it last year by having a more elaborate celebration. Today we had plans to go out for breakfast so that V could load up on her favorite pancakes. Alas, both me and my son were sidelined by a nasty cold. Hubby took V out for a quick father-daughter date of yogurt and park instead.
Here is to three years of living well with diabetes, and to many many more ahead!
