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.
