JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes
I don't talk of Lance's diabetes much since his diagnosis, but we have certainly had our ups and downs with it. Many compare living with diabetes like a roller coaster...but I'd have to say...it is not all that fun!
Lance has been a real trooper dealing with the frequent finger pokes (to check his glucose), and his four insulin injections a day. He is looking forward to the time when his doctors give him the go head to try an insulin pump.
Meanwhile....we are going to be participating in our local Walk to Cure Diabetes (on October 4th). We've decided to walk with Jacksons' group of walkers, "Team Blue Eyes". Jackson is a kindergartner who attends the same school as Lance, and was also diagnosed earlier this year. Lance and Jackson have quickly become good buddies, as they see each other in the office quite frequently. If you would like to see Jackson's video, click here. Lance's story is similar, though I have not made a video.
Thanks for visiting my blog today! I am working on some really cool projects, but I am unable to share them right now. Have a fabulous weekend!!
