On November 10, 2008 a life was saved. Sugar Boy was one of the 40 children in the United States who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on that day.
What does two years with Type 1 Diabetes look like?
It looks like this:
Approximately 5,840 drops of blood taken from Sugar boy’s fingers
Approximately 1,080 insulin injections (in just the first 6 months after diagnosis)
Approximately 370 boxes of Juicy Juice (to bring up a low)
Approximately 250 infusion set insertions (once we had the insulin pump)
Approximately 120 sensor insertions (once we had the continuous glucose monitoring system)
But even more importantly….
It looks like THIS:
Happy D Anniversary to my handsome boy!
Today, we CELEBRATE your LIFE!
