Day 77

 Tonight, Craig had baseball.. He just had a quick half an hour pitching practice...

Of which he missed almost half of..

Well he was pitching, and then realized he was off... then realized he was getting he asked his coach if he could go check himself..

He did and he was 57....

He said "diabetes is  a pain!"
because he really wanted to play, but had to sit out to feel better and get better numbers...
He is super determined and serious about baseball and has always wanted to do his best.. Thats just the way he is with everything... So it was very frustrating for him to have to sit out..

Later he said how thankful he was to have a coach that understands and doesnt give him a hard time at all about having to check his blood, or sit out if he isnt at a good number..

I am thankful too..I want Craig to be safe and even though I know its hard to sit out, I am thankful that he listens to hid body and doesnt feel embarrassed to have to stop and check his blood..

Yes, diabetes is a pain, but there are worse things in life right? Im sure Craig may hate it when I say that, but really, things could be a lot harder.. I am so thankful that my kids have a manageable disease.. Although its hard and a lot of work, they can still be active, and live their dreams...That is a blessing in itself:)
