AS many of you know on 8/6/2012 Brianna was rushed to the ER in critical condition. There at Dells Children's Hospital she was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes (T1D)... Brianna's life has now changed forever. As many of you know, this will never go away, until there is a CURE she will live with this and be insulin dependent for the rest of her life! She's a strong young lady but has and will have her struggles. Some days are better then others... Some days she is all smiles showing me a new cheer routine and other days she is angry that I "nag" her to take her blood before she eats, or she cries because her fingers are so sore and frustrated when she gets light headed doing what used to be "normal" activities. She asks me why this happened to her and whats it's purpose? My heart breaks for her as I explain we don't know why but the purpose is up to her. She will be a stronger person for sure but what she DOES with this is up to her.
This year Brianna will be trying out for soccer and she is currently One of the Cheer Captains at her school!l She has told the school nurse that if another student comes in with T1D and is having a hard time, she would be happy to talk to him or her and explain/show them that life will be OK. As I said, Brianna is STRONG and her spirit and faith is even stronger.
