That day we could have never known how our lives would change..
It was a heart wrenching few days.. but this past 2 years has gone by quick and Craig has dealt with his diabetes in such a positive way. He has helped his sister through her diagnosis and many site changes (she needs a hand to hold every time!).
He was able to turn a diagnosis into something positive. He has spoken at several assemblies, he advocates for himself and this disease, he has also been able to help so many other kids because of this trial in his life. I am so proud of my boy!! Any child who lives with this disease and takes whatever positive they can from it is inspiring!!
He has scars from pump sites, small red unhealed sores where his sites were. He has callused fingertips from the constant finger pokes, he goes through highs and lows, bad and good days. Ketones and sickness...
Through all of this, he continues to live his life how he wants to. He hangs out with his friends, plays baseball, does boy scouts and almost has his Eagle Scout award, he gets a 4.33 GPA and is in the top 5% of the Freshman class, he keeps a good attitude and has a great sense of humor. He inspires me so much and shows so much strength! Diabetes is a hard disease, but it doesnt stop him..or slow him down!
