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?
