Diabetes Blog Week: Day 2 Letter Writing Day
Four weeks ago you were given to Princess by Miss Sally. I have to admit that I really didn't want you here. We already have one Rufus and never wanted another one. I never thought we would have another one, until one Sunday afternoon when I realized we would "welcoming" another Rufus into our family the next day.
The morning you entered our lives was a really hard one. You see were were at our Endo's office with Princess, not Lovebug. It just wasn't supposed to be this way. We were not supposed to be in the VERY same room that we learned all about how to give shots and take care of Lovebug......with Princess.
We knew you would be in the blue JDRF backpack that would be given to us. As soon as Miss Sally gave us that backpack, we opened it right up and pulled you out. It took Princess only a couple seconds to notice you and her face lit up with one of the biggest smiles I had seen a while. She gave you the BIGGEST hug ever. Left me in tears.
You have been there for Princess in ways I just can't be. You have taken shots for her and showed her how to be brave. That is something I am unable to do with shots, since I am still a wimp when it comes to me receiving one! You have comforted her each and every time she receives a shot, she squeezes you tight as I poke her yet again. Princess just loves to give you shots on your pink patch, sorry for that. We are working on rotating those shots!
She has held onto you tight many nights now. You have become her buddy, going just about everywhere that Princess goes. I have to admit that I would love to put a little purple tutu on you and make you look a tad bit more "girly" but Princess loves you just the way you are.
Thank you for being there.
Thank you for making that transition easier for Princess when she was diagnosed with diabetes just four short weeks ago.
Thank you for everything you are to her, in ways that just can't be. If I could take diabetes away from her and give it to myself, I would in a heartbeat. But since I can't, I am glad she has you.
Thank you really just does not seem adequate enough.
