Another 525,600 minutes have passed marking another year since Joseph was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. Since diagnosis we have spent 1,576,800 minutes monitoring, dosing, poking, checking, counting, calculating, analyzing, planning, preparing and worrying.
January 11, 2013 will forever be engrained in my memory. It was a day that has forever changed the course of our lives not only for Joseph, but as parents and as a family. I look back today and can feel every emotion, recall every conversation and can remember everything that happened leading up to this day. Today on the inside: I am sad, I am mad, and I am worried about what the future will hold for Joseph, but today I know that a Diaversary for us is a celebration.
A celebration for all of our triumphs.
A celebration for keeping Joseph alive and healthy.
A celebration for how far we have come in these last 3 years.
Most important of all today we celebrate Joseph's ability to overcome and endure things that no child should ever have to deal with every single day. We are beyond proud of the strong little boy he has become and we know that T1D doesn't stand a chance against him.
We have hope for the future and pray that one day we can look back and have a new anniversary, the date that Joseph was cured of his Type 1 Diabetes!!
