Check out the size of that pumpkin!
My lil pumpkin
One day he's going to be so mad at me for doing this to him
The princess and the pumpkin
It is why, every seven days, we inject a sensor into Elise, so we can monitor her blood sugar via a Continuous Glucose Monitor.
It's why I ALWAYS have a watchful eye on Elise.
It's why Elise comes with us on our date nights.
And why I carry a backpack full of strange gadgets and food. It may seem odd to you, but it might just save Elise's life one day.
It's why I am so tired, so distracted, so overprotective, so consumed and so frightened. Because stories like this happen. And they happen to people who do everything they can, just like we're doing.
And so, my heart is breaking. Not just for this family, but for all the other D-families out there who hear these stories. And the need to check their kiddos a little more often and hold them a little closer consumes them that much more.
Please God, let us find a cure soon.
Hmm, shall I eat, sleep or poop now?
