At a loss of words, for once

I don't even know what to say.

Though I feel like I should say something.

Maybe it's because since I heard the news that we had lost another member (and a child at that) of the diabetes community to Dead in Bed Syndrome I have tried my absolute hardest not to think about it.

But it's there anyway.

It's there in the way that tears start to fall any time I allow my mind to go there.

It's there in the way I find myself so freaking mad that diabetes is my daughter's reality.

It's there every single time I haul my tired ass out of bed to make sure Elise's is still breathing.

It's there when I pray for a cure.

It's there when I hug her for about the hundredth time today.

It's there when I don't want to let her go. Ever.

I am so totally heart broken for the family that lost their 13 year daughter to this insidious disease. I cannot imagine the pain. In fact, I'm expending a whole lot of energy trying not to.

Instead, I will add my voice to the rallying cry for a cure.

Let it come soon.


  1. I wish we could all be together at times like these....praying for all of our babies and Eilish's memory.

  2. ((HUG)) I think beyond anything to know how many of us spend night after night loosing sleep in fear. In fear. Gosh darn it, really...this is just too much. I pray for each and every one of you daily. I pray for comfort through the fear and above all I pray that our babies are all safe.

  3. *big ol' group cyber hug*

    and then yes, let us continue to unite, educate, and advocate for a cure...

  4. Hoping and praying for it to come SOON! Hugs to all of you who live the same life...even if it is in my computer!
