I got this from Kerri last year and decided to do it again this year. If you'd like to do it too just post a link to a definitive post from each month last year along with the first sentence of the post.
I have enjoyed going back and looking at old posts. I am reminded of how far we have come. I am really in a good place right now. I am the happiest I have been since Riley's diagnosis.
Also while looking at old posts I re-read some of the comments and I must say how awesome all you guys are. I don't know what I have would have done these past 2+ years without your kind words. I look forward to another year with you guys.
January: "Because I Have To"
"It was 4:30 in the morning."
"Riley had been running high for a while."
March: "A little help"
"One day last week I was sitting at a local restaurant waiting for my food."
April: "Because I have a four year old"
"When Katie Couric told me about a 'possible new treatment for Type 1 diabetes' I sat on the edge of my couch wide-eyed with my hand over my mouth."
May: "Talk me down"
"You know, I had many parents tell me in the beginning of this disease that checking sugars and giving insulin would just become second nature."
June: "Choking back tears"
"About three weeks after Riley was diagnosed he checked his sugar for the first time."
"I've been spending a lot of time on tudiabetes lately reading stories of other parents."
August: "He's at school"
"Well, Riley is at school and , somehow, the world didn't end."
"A lot of people's emotions and attitudes are what they allow them to be."
October: "730 Days"
"730 days ago diabetes slipped quietly into our house."
November: "Walk of Hope 2007 Video"
"This is a video I made for Walk of Hope this year."
December: "Bigs Oops"

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!
