I've seen this link on several other blogs and just had to put it on mine too.
Is it possible that they've been wrong all along? Diabetes isn't auto-immune, but neurological. Or both?
I don't know. I just know that reading it gave a boost to my hope. My hope (for a cure) has always been intact. I don't know if always will be. After 10 or so years of this disease, will I still feel the same way? I don't know. I hope I don't have to find out.
It's like I commented on Kerri's blog. I don't really think about a cure very often, hardly ever, really. Usually, I'm just trudging ahead taking care of the task at hand. Then, an article like that comes out and I'm stopped dead in my tracks. I stop long enough to ponder what it might mean. I think about what it will mean for my child and others like him if it comes to fruition. Then, I start putting one foot in front of the other again, taking care of the task at hand.
Except now, there's a little extra spring in my step.
