Luke started junior high today. He isn’t normally nervous for the first day of school. Today? He was. Not only is he going to a new school, one where his mom isn’t right down the hall, but he is going to school for the first time with T1D.
There were a lot of uncertainties for him.
What if I get lost?
What if I forget my locker combination?
What if I can’t find my class?
What if my blood sugar goes low?
What if I get in trouble for eating candy to treat a low?
And so many more…
He made it okay. It wasn’t his favorite day in the world. But he made it. He makes me proud, the way he keeps on keeping on.
