Spread the Love - Diabetes Blog Week Day 7

Todays Topic:

As another Diabetes Blog Week draws to a close, let’s reflect on some of the great bloggers we’ve found this week. Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved during Diabetes Blog Week, and tell us why they’re worth reading. Or share three blogs you’ve found this week that are new to you. (Thanks to Pearlsa of A Girl's Reflections for inspiring this topic.)

Hard to pick 3!!  I have loved this week, and reading different blogs.  The DOC  has been such great resource and place of encouragement for me.  I don't even think we had left the hospital after diagnosis and I was Google-ing for more information and trying to find stories like ours to have someone to relate to.  I knew he wasn't the only 7 year old to ever be diagnosed, but at that moment it felt like it.  

Today is exactly 6 months since Justins diagnosis.  We are looking forward to a awesome summer, full of excitement, and firsts for Justin!  We aren't gonna let diabetes slow us down!  Our son is a rock star about everything!!

So these are the 3 blogs I connected with most this week, all 3 are new blogs to me!

Queen Mother and her Sweet Type 1 Princess - She and I have kids almost the same age, diagnosed not to far off from each other.

My Diabetic Child- Of course I immediately connected, She also has a Justin that was diagnosed at 7 years old.  My Justin thought that was pretty cool!

Our Life with D-She commented on on of my posts early in the week, and I headed over to read hers! Loved it!
