I agree with something Hillary Clinton said many years ago: "it takes a village".
Today I had our new bus driver call me over from the driveway to speak with her. "oh God, this can't be good" I thought.
She said she was sorry that last week she gave Rocco two dum dum suckers. She said she worried about it all weekend and hoped it was ok that she gave him the suckers. She asked me what kind of candy could she buy him for when she passed out treats next time. Such a thoughtful question touched my heart.
This has happened to me many times since he has been diagnosed. At the fun run last year, the PTA went and bought him a special sugar free Ice cream sandwich. The first year he was diagnosed my neighbor bought him four bags of sugar free candy for Halloween. He just turned two! My girlfriends have had low carb lunches at play dates. Every party at school has been planned with him in mind. My own sister-in-law called me last week and wondered what kind of food could she make for him for thanksgiving.
The support I receive about Rocco's diabetes is unconditional and heartfelt.
Friends, family and strangers have always been so kind to us. For all of you out there that have helped me maintain his blood sugar along the way-I thank you. So does Rocco!
Today I saw another example of "the village" helping out another person in need. I hope you enjoy this.
