7 year Anniversary :( Eat, Dose, and Be Merry :)

On Friday, November 27th, Supernanny will be helping parents regain control of their family after their 5 year old son is diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

Oddly enough, this is bringing tears to my eyes because I'm thinking back to the struggles my own family and I had when we dealt with our newly diagnosed son. You would think by now I would be more steeled against being emotional over it.

But, no....the feelings are still raw after all these years.

Wow....... It hit me right this second that it has been 7 years this week since Brendon was diagnosed with diabetes. If it weren't for writing about the episode, the anniversary reminder would've come and gone without notice.

He was diagnosed just a few days before Thanksgiving. That was nothing to be thankful for that year.

But, each year afterward, we were thankful that he was able to regain his health and vigor and live a semi-normal life.

Well, let me fix that....HE was able to live a TOTALLY normal life because he was never phased by having diabetes. He played and did everything he was meant to do in life.

He still lives life on his own terms. Sometimes to our frustration as parents, LOL. But, I wouldn't want my little man to be limited by anything at all....not by diabetes....or his own imagination.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Eat, Dose, and Be Merry :D
