The learning curve does not seem to be leveling out these days. Since we are more or less taking it day by day it seems like everytime we turn around there is something new that we encounter. This is good. Because I have been on a information gathering frenzy lately. There is more and more to wrap my head around so I know it is important to take things as they come and even school myself on what is happening that day.
I am reading a book right now (Yes everyone sit back down and hold your applause, thanks) called "When a Child Has Diabetes" because I seem to be asking Denise a lot of questions about everything. And I feel I haven't really been doing my part in the entire knowing the overview of certain particulars. With saying that Denise is my most reliable and most available source of information these days.
This entire blog thing is extremely useful to us. In lieu of actually meeting families and people with diabetes this is the way we are doing it. This is a great communication device. Even with the last post regarding the Glargine, we instantly received feedback about others experiences and opinions about that issue. Totally awesome!
Please always comment on anything you have to say about anything we are going through. We will never take it as being lectured or being told this is better than that type of canary. Technical comments as well as supportive comments from both family and friends (friends I do include fellow webring contributors) are always welcome and encouraged.
To my sisters,
Charlene you said you don't have first hand experience with type 1 diabetes, and that was more or less the cause of you not commenting, En contraire mon seour, but you do. You have your own questions and ways to deal with a niece that has this disease. It may not consume you like it does us. But I know you think about her and us all the time. Yours and Jenns support has been incredible. I never doubted you guys for a split second on this. I love that you come over and all we talk about if I want is this. And show you her equipment, and even inject you with saline. Totally great!
Jenn I know your 3,000 or so kms away living the dream in TO, but we still read your comments and blog everyday. Emma still knows where Amy lives. So were cool but you have to come home for a visit real soon.
This is one great thing that Diabetes has brought us. It has brought us many new friends. It has enabled us to really know what is important. It has allowed other people to show their compassion towards us and especially Emma. I guess in a great sense of the word it has brought us a lot of love.
