This is hard for me as I haven't focused on the photo taking yet but thought Id post some I have.
This is Joshua 24 hours after DX. He was notdoing well here. Ill tell his story later but this is still in the PICU and we were still praying for everything to be okay.
This is his ER Doc in Blue and one of his nurses in Red that came back to check on him. They almost lost him because no one expected him to be Diabetic. They thought he had a virus or head injury. The Doctor is credited with saving his life as she "smelled" the diabetes.
Before we left the PICU I had to do his shot! This was very hard for me! (as I know you are aware of)
our first night in our room. I hated this thing on his arm!
our awesome doctor!! She ROCKS!
Our Hospital team! Dr. G, Dr. Rachel Cohen (our amazing resident), Renee, our Nurse Educator, and the 1st year intern who I never got his name. The staff learned quick to cover their scrubs so Joshua would let them near him! He loved Rachel and so did I. She spent an amazing amount of time with me helping me come to terms with everything.
Leaving the hospital after 7 long days!! IT WAS SO GREAT to go home!
This is the number of needles Joshua uses in 3 weeks!!
This is an image that I took for granted prior to 2/13/10. I always assumed Id celebrate his big day with a birthday cake smashing. When we were in the hospital I remember crying myself to sleep one night because I didn't think my baby would be able to have birthday cake. (not that I needed the cake smashing, but that it was something he COULD NOT have) 3 weeks later we had these taken and then had the biggest celebration party with birthday cake you can dream of. We were so thankful that we were able to be with our baby!
