My Favorite Memory of My Son
This is a very short and sweet, okay depending on your outlook, sweet story about my son. My son has Type 1 diabetes, which means that he has to prick his fingers multiple times a day. Depending on the day it could be four to eight times a day! UGH! He also has to give himself shots daily and that can be any where from three to six times daily. There are times when I have to wake up in the middle of the night and test his blood sugar. I typically get the honor of taking the first blood sugar of the morning while he is still somewhat asleep or waking up.
One morning I came into his bedroom to test his blood sugar. I uncovered his hand and I said. “Brandon which ginger do you want me to use?” Slowly he uncurled his middle finger. All I could do was laugh. Even in his groggy state of mind he was able to give diabetes the middle finger!
I love this story because it shows his humor and the way he has learned to deal with a really crappy disease!
