Dream a Little Dream - Life After a Cure

What would life be like after a cure?  
I wouldn't WORRY  anymore that I will go upstairs and not be able to wake Love Bug up in the morning. 

I wouldn't have to listen to Love Bug cry and scream when she is LOW.

I wouldn't have to see her glassy eyes when she is HIGH.

I wouldn't have to POKE her little fingers 8-10 times a day.

I wouldn't have to look at her PUMP as a machine that keeps my baby a live.

I wouldn't feel the need to throw a mommy temper tantrum in the middle of the night when I am so FRUSTRATED I can't see straight.

I wouldn't find test strips all over my house ANYMORE.

I wouldn't have to tell Love Bug she CAN'T eat something because her sugar is to high or low.

I wouldn't have to hear Love Bug say, "I DON'T want to change my site mom, can't we do it tomorrow?"

I would be SHOUTING. (at the top of my lungs)  PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!

I would start CRYING uncontrollably.

I would be full of HOPE

I would be giddy with EXCITEMENT

I would be able to SLEEP an entire night for the first time in over a year.

I would be able to walk out of the house with JUST my purse.

I would be able to talk to people about her diagnosis without bursting out in tears of sadness but tears of JOY.

I would be able to hug Love Bug and tell her everything will be okay, and REALLY mean it.

I would be able to BURN all of her diabetes supplies, and I would throw a BIG party to do it!

I would SLEEP, a lot. 

I would be able to CELEBRATE her CURE DAY instead of dreading her diagnosis day every year. 

I would be able to BREATHE  knowing Love Bug will live a full and healthy life without the worries of this horrible disease.

I would SLEEP . (did I mention that before?)

Now, if only the DREAM was a REALITY.

So glad to know I'm not the only one throwing hissy fits in the middle of the night from the frustration of it all ;).

I hope to celebrate one day with you and share in the tears of joy.
