Today, youngest daughter gave herself an insulin injection for the first time. I’m really proud of her. The diabetes educator said for me to expect her to be ready to do her own injections in a couple of months, so for her to be ready after being home from the hospital for a week and diagnosed for only ten days – well, that’s wonderful in my book.

She’s done two injections now. She said she did one fast & one slowly, to see if it felt different. She reported that they felt the same – a little pressure but no pain.

She’s a brave young lady. Her strength and courageous attitude inspires me daily. I’m lucky to have her in my life.

Here’s the medical alert bracelet that she’s picked out. Cute, huh?
