So I was reflecting on the “contribution” years post and saw when we posted that we could only contribute 1-year last year and thinking about another year already being behind us and moving onto year 3 and the thought entered my mind that just made me feel…bad (or sad, or a combination of the two) for Liam.
He’s been living with diabetes now for over half his life. He was diagnosed Feb 29, 2016 at just over 2 years of age. Here we are going into May 2018 and he’s going on 5 years old already.
It’s just crazy how time flies.
BTW, after all this time, he STILL screams bloody murder for any shots he has to get. Not sure if you other parents with T1 kids are still experiencing that joy (sarcasm) or not but the days of him screaming so much will certainly not be missed. But…I get it. It doesn’t upset me…it just saddens me. It always breaks my heart. Every 3 days when I have to change the POD and every 14 days when I have to change the CGM.
Just crazy to think he’s had this now for “over half his life”…and he’s only 4. My goal for him is to grow into a strong @Richard157 and become a recipient of the 75-year Lilly Diabetes Journey Award. That would be a lifetime achievement in and of itself.
