Eliza attempted her first sleepover last night. She is blessed to be friends with a little girl named Quinn who lives down the street and who also has Type 1. She was a bit nervous but wanted to try and sleep out for the night. She packed a bag and waited excitedly at the door.
Pete went over at 8 o’clock to give her Lantus. The girls were having a great time playing. They are both so amazingly full of life.She made it to 10 o’clock and then decided she wanted to come home so Pete went to pick her up. Even though she didn’t spend the night out she had a blast with her friend.
I don’t know what it is like to have Diabetes. I am so happy that Eliza has a friend who knows what it is like. Eliza says she feels like Quinn is her…and I know what she means. I wish that none of these kids had to live with D but it makes me happy that they have each other. I hope someday they can all celebrate the discovery of a cure together.
