Five years ago today my daughter lived.
Five years ago today my was daughter diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
For us, today is a day to celebrate and be grateful for our second change. We don’t celebrate with balloons and firecrackers. A simple bouquet of purple flowers and a big hug will mark the day that changed all of us forever in so many ways.
I still struggle with God’s plan with all this. Certainly there must be a purpose? I will never know for sure. But somehow I feel that His plan or at least part of His plan was for me to help educate about Type 1 diabetes, even in a small way. So if you’ve been a follower of this blog for a long time you know this is where I post the symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes. If you’re a new follower, be assured that I will be posting this again on our next anniversary. Please read them over. I hope you never have to use the knowledge. But you'll have the information in case God chooses this path for someone you love.
Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes:
Increased thirst and frequent urination
Sweet smelling breath
This time next year my daughter will be in the midst of a new life, away from home being a normal college student. She will always have T1 Diabetes and all its challenges, but she will have a fabulous life. Truly a reason to celebrate!
