BUT first we had to get the glucose tolerant test done for Connor to follow up with his TrialNet results. He did great, once they found a vein...tough as nails these kids!! and a lot of blood vials to fill. Cara was very interested in the whole two hour process. The only part that she felt any sort of sympathy for Connor was when they were taking all the tape off his hand as they removed the needle. It was actually kinda funny, they both were making the same painful face (wish I took a pic) Cara hates removing her sites because of the pulling of the tape.
|Thumbs up, he did almost vomit as soon as he drank down that sugar orange drink but the nurse and I talked him through it and no problems or vomit after that!!|
Now the waiting game 4-6 weeks until we get the results.
BUT THE BEST PART OF THE DAY!! Since we were in London (Ontario) we (I) HAD to make a stop at the Banting House. This is where Sir Frederick G. Banting thought up the idea of insulin and saved the life's of all type 1's around the world. Speechless!!
If you EVER have a chance you MUST visit! The information is amazing, I feel like I knew Sir Frederick Banting, you get a very special peak back in time at a truly amazing and with all respect a very radical man...an amazing man...this guy knew how to live!
|first thing I saw, first thing I read and the start of tears filling my eyes. Cara & Connor kept asking mom what does that say? My response "ask your dad to read it"|
|Cara and the man that saved her life...THANK YOU!!|
|The Flame of Hope "This flame will burn continuously and only be extinguished when it can be declared that a cure for diabetes has been found." and what a wonderful day that will be!|
|Blue Lights :)|
|I can truly say I LOVE THIS MAN!|
|It was actually October 31st they told us. There are many documents with Oct 30th however in reality it was past midnight when he got out of bed with the most wonderful idea!|
|The actual room, bed, wallpaper, flooring, desk, bedside table and the same room that the discovery of insulin was thought of in. AMAZING!!|
|Where the actual magic happened...a medical miracle!|
All this mom can say is THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
All it takes is one person, one night to think of one idea to change the world. This thought is what gives me hope that a cure, one day will be found.
