DO YOU LIKE SHOTS?


It's been a full month since Jake got diagnosed with Diabetes. We pulled out his used syringe bottle to see how full it was. Utah requires used syringes to be discarded in a plastic container. We were amazed to see that it was almost full. We figured that he has easily had over 100 shots this month. I get freaked out when I get my flu shot once a year. Jake is such a strong boy and we're so proud of him!

I am so proud of Jake. Is he learning to give his own shots yet? Diabetes affects the whole family and I'm glad Jake has you for parents. I enjoy visiting your blog and loved all the lights at the temple. Beautiful!

Sweet boy. I can not believe how well he is handling this, he is such an amazing guy. I am sure it has not been easy for any of you but he looks well adjusted. xoxo

What a trooper!!! One of our nieces also has diabetes and it truly does affect the whole family. I can't believe how grown up he looks... you can't possibly have one that old!:) I meant to tell you to tell your mom Hi for me... I always loved her! Have a Merry Christmas.
