It?s time again!! Walk #3!!! I don?t know where the year went, but I have a feeling some of the changes we went through may have something to do with it! In October of last year, Kennedy made the switch to an insulin pump. This decision wasn?t an easy one for me, since I believe in the concept of ?if it?s not broken, don?t fix it.? But Kennedy had reached her limit of at least 4 shots a day. Suddenly, all shots were a battle and there were just too many tears. At that point, it didn?t matter what I wanted, all I knew was we needed to try to make things better. After investigating the different pumps available, we decided on Omnipod (you can see all about it here: www.myomnipod.com). Now, instead of four shots a day, Kennedy wears a pod that is changed every three days and the insulin is delivered via the PDM (Personal Diabetes Manager). This wonderful little device has given her so much more freedom, BUT IT ISN?T A CURE. We still have tears. We still battle highs and lows. We still count every carb. I still hear her say, ?Why me, Mom?? I still worry beyond measure. But we still have HOPE, so we will continue to walk.
Every cent gets us a little bit closer to finding that cure. Please think about helping us out again this year. I want to look at Kennedy one day soon and say, ?It?s over.?
(I am aware that there are question marks all over this paragraph. For reasons I cannot explain, they will not go away. I just need you all to know I haven't lost my mind in regard to proper punctuation) :)
With all of my heart, thank you!
Type 1, or juvenile diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people, a large and growing percentage of them children.
There is some good news, though. JDRF is our best hope for finding a cure. It funds more type 1 diabetes research than any other charity worldwide and it's making progress along many promising paths toward better treatments and a cure.
Now, more than ever, you can make a crucial difference. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible? Together, we can make the cure a reality.
