It has been exactly 2 yrs 3 months and 9 days since that day.The day that changed our lives forever. I will never forget that day .I still remember the feeling in the air that night as we sat at Children's Hospital watching over our 3 year old hooked up to all sorts of machines.Not knowing what tomorrow would bring.Not knowing how much one statement out of a doctors mouth can change your whole world.That day was November 16,2008 and Madison was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.
Now two years and a bit later I have decided to start this blog to share our journey with friends and family and of course the online diabetes community. I hope to also spread awareness of this disease and the balancing act it is. So now please forgive my grammar and any future four letter words. Please post any comments I love to hear from you. Thanks

  3. Hi there! Thanks for following me! It's nice to connect with you!

    P.S. I don't usually like when blogs have music on them, but this song has always made me think of my son Brandon & how he never lets diabetes get in his way. He is stronger than I could ever be. Thinking of him & reading this post as this song plays brings tears to my eyes. Kids with diabetes are heroes.

    I look forward to sharing with you!
