My Hero

Dblog Week Day  7 - Diabetes Hero

She was diagnosed at only 12 months.  She has never known a life other than finger pokes, shots, highs, lows, CGMs, and pump changes.  Eat now.  Eat this.  You can't eat right now.

She seldom complains.  When she does, I know it's time to listen.  She's only 4 and we often forget that.  She is more mature than some adults I know.

She has the biggest heart.  I haven't been feeling well this week and yesterday she came up to me, started rubbing my back, telling she wants to take good care of me, just like I do for her.

She is Elise; my hero.  My daughter.  My blessing.

How did I get so lucky?
