It’s Luke’s 2nd Diaversary!

Today is Luke’s 2nd Diaversary!


What does that mean? Two years ago today, Luke was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  The word diaversary is a mash up of the words diabetes and anniversary. Diaversary!

Why in the world do you celebrate getting Type 1 Diabetes? We aren’t celebrating the fact that he’s got diabetes, but we are celebrating Luke! We’re celebrating his strength. We’re celebrating his courage. And we’re celebrating his perseverance.

Last year on his first diaversary, Luke wanted cinnamon rolls for breakfast… and that’s what he got! He wanted homemade mac & cheese for lunch… and that’s what he got! And to round out his carbalicious day, he wanted to go to Cici’s Pizza for dinner, where he ate one piece of macaroni and cheese pizza and then decided he was tired of eating junk. Ha ha! This year, we are letting Luke call the shots again. I’m excited to see what he decides! (I’m hoping it includes something besides eating junk this year!)
