Woman, Independent Parent, Artist, Advocate, Artifical Pancreas.... and EVERYTHING in between.

I am blessed to be parenting two beautiful girls, ages eight and eleven. My youngest nearly lost her life at age six (August 2010) to diabetic ketoacidosis: an often fatal consequences of undiagnosed type 1 diabetes. This is OUR journey: raw and sometimes, uncensored.

Thank you for visiting wishing good health and a cooperative pancreas to you and yours.

I Wish For You

I wish for you, my youngest daughter
A twisted sense of humour
To help you leap future hurdles.

I wish for you balance.
Happiness can accompany hardship
Dawn always follows the darkest of nights.

I wish for you loyal friendship
With another Type 1 diabetic child
Who knows the path that you walk daily.

I wish for you understanding.
Knowing that the tears I hide
Aren’t anything that you’ve done to me.

I wish for you tenacity
Never giving up, never surrendering
Never letting Diabetes have the last word.

I wish for you a discovery of faith
Faith in a higher power
You may have feel condemned you.

I wish for you nerves of steel
for the 26,280 finger pokes
You will have experienced by age nineteen.

I wish for you a long happy life
Overflowing with good health and contentment
I wish for you a cure tomorrow.

I’d sell my soul for one today.
Just for you

Without hesitation.
