Diabetes Month Photo a Day - Healthcare

Hmmmm, not your typical picture of heathcare, right?  These are two postcards Elise and I received for the WDD postcard exchange.  Except that we didn't sign up to participate.  It wasn't because we didn't want to, but because life has been overwhelmingly busy for us.

Plus I still have feelings of guilt from last year... we did sign up, sent our postcards, and received some beautiful ones in return; two of which asked if Elise would like a pen/email pal.  Something we were very excited about.

Except, before I ever got a chance to let those families know we were interested, Lucas arrived a month early, spending 9 days in the NICU.  Everything was put on the back-burner and I have always felt so bad about not replying.

All that to say, receiving these two postcards in the mail this year have been sort of like healthcare for my soul.  

November is National Diabetes Month and American Diabetes Month.  Kerri is doing a photo-a-day to document life with type 1 and I thought it would be fun to join in, following the prompts on her blog.  Join me, won't you?


  1. Now that's my kind of healthcare! xoxo

  2. Fabulous. No guilt feelings allowed - you had a bit on your plate. What a great surprise - the post cards. The DOC has provided me with more support and health tips (even with disclaimers) than any medical team we have had and we have had some great Endo's and CDEs - its just they can't be with us each day or at 3am like the DOC can - plus all the health team ever sent were bills.
