My year in 12 sentences

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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"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."

"730 Days"

"730 days ago diabetes slipped quietly into our house."

"Walk of Hope 2007 Video"

"This is a video I made for Walk of Hope this year."

"Bigs Oops"

"Riley's teacher was out sick yesterday."

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