It's been almost a year and a half since diagnosis. From the beginning, we have tried to remember to fit diabetes into life, not life into diabetes. Some days are harder than others, but I feel like it is getting more routine. I don't think it's easier, exactly. Just more routine. Part of life that isn't going away. It makes me proud and sad at the same time.
He also passed his driving test and got his license on the same day as his checkup. We finally got rid of that awful picture that was taken about a week before his diagnosis. Then he went on his first date with him driving the next day. It was a nerve-wracking couple of days for this mom! But like everything else he tackles, he did it well. Diabetes isn't going to stop him or even slow him down very much. He only slows down to test and treat as needed. Otherwise, he is going to do what other kids his age are doing. KDA every single day!
