Brian – “D-Dad”
The blog title D-Dad – Living with D on so many levels! couldn’t be more fitting for Brian and his family. Brian himself was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as an adult in 2004 and his son Joshua was diagnosed when he was 11 months old in February 2010. Brian, a former EMT who now works with autistic children, rushed Joshua to the ER when he went to check on the youngster after he didn’t wake at the normal time. Brian discovered Joshua lethargic and his eyes were rolling back in his head. Bloodwork revealed that Joshua’s blood sugar level was over 1200 and he was suffering from ketoacidosis. After several days in the PICU, Joshua recovered. Brian, who had previously considered his diabetes an inconvenience that he didn’t want to trouble his wife with, would now have to face the disease on a whole new level, as the role model to his type 1 son. For a different perspective on raising a type 1 child, be sure to check out Brian’s wife Shannon’s blog The New Normal Life. Visit Brian’s Blog: “D-Dad”.

Anyone have ink?
Let’s preface this post with something. I was raised in a household where I was threatened within an inch of my life if I got an ear ring. “Ear rings are for girls, are you a girl?” Let me clarify that my parents were not domineering, this was just something they felt very strongly about. You can… Read More

“But I want diabetes too!”
How do you explain to a 6 year old that diabetes really does suck? He can’t see the crappy way his brother feels when he is high or low. He hears us encouraging his brother that pod site changes “don’t really hurt that much”. What he does see is his brother say “no” to the food everyone else is… Read More

And the crowd goes wild!
So we went to the park the other day for some family fresh air. Jackson, our 6 year old non-D child is playing in his first baseball league right now, so we took his equipment to practice. I was all excited because my best friend, who is a baseball umpire, and his wife were visiting. I thought he… Read More

Not like Momma taught me!
Type 1 diabetes goes against everything our momma’s taught us when we were kids. Yes, we were expected to clean our plates. However, did your mom ever make something else if you wouldn’t eat what was for dinner. No! Absolutely not! That was taboo in the circle of Momhood. I know I heard “you will… Read More

The joy of screaming!
Screaming is not a fun experience for parents. Babies come out screaming and we spend the next few months doing whatever we can to get them to stop. Screaming children are the bain of most parents existence. Right after his diagnosis at 11 months old, screaming took on a whole new meaning…. Read More

Hypo-drunkness is scary!
I had fun in college. My poison of choice was captain Morgan’s spiced rum and Pepsi. There were quite a few Friday and Saturday nights (a lot of Thursday’s too) spent with a drink in my hand seeing just how stupid I could get. I’m not proud, but I had a good time. Some of the most interesting… Read More

D-Blog week post 7 – My D hero
Today’s post is about our diabetic hero. I didn’t have to think long about mine. My hero has never been in the news, or made a million dollars. He has never saved a bus full of orphans from falling off a cliff. He is my hero because he changed how I thought about diabetes. He stands 3 feet tall and… Read More

D-blog day 5 – What they should know!
What do I want people to know about diabetes. There are so many things that I wish people understood about type 1 diabetes. There is one that stands out. There is a quote that spells it out. “There are only two things people with type 1 can’t eat. Poison, and cookies…..that have been made with… Read More

D-blog day 4 post – My miracle device
My miracle device It would be normal for a diabetic, or parent of a diabetic to want the invention of a new device for the treatment of diabetes. They would want a constant glucose monitor that would seamlessly communicate with an insulin pump in real time. They would want that CGM to be accurate… Read More

D-blog Day 3 – What needs work?
Do it because it’s good for you! I hated to read when I was a child. I grew up in the 80’s, so I was in love with the tv. My Mom tried everything to get me interested in reading. Finally, when I was in the fifth grade I entered into a bet with my parents. The deal was that I had to go an entire… Read More

D-blog week 2012: Post 2
I came across a post that said that this was Diabetes blog week. A different topic every day. I posted yesterday, but I am going to try their topics for the rest of the week. Today is: What I rock? I rock the role (hehe) of being an ambassador for type 1 diabetes. Wherever I am found, it is very… Read More

What can you do in your sleep?
What can you do in your sleep? You are always hearing the random case of sleep walking in your sleep. There are always the crazy stories about someone doing something ridiculous and blaming it on sleep walking. Then there are the people that talk in their sleep. That is just asking for trouble. I… Read More

Swing Low, Sweet…Nope. Nothing sweet about lows!
Ok, lows are not my friend. Joshua has been consistently low for more than a week. Last weekend at his brother’s baseball game, Joshua was in the 50’s. Shannon gave home about 150 carbs and he still didn’t go over 100. We struggled with it all night. With a little help from a friend, we decided to… Read More

So much to say!
Well, it has obviously been a while since my last post. A good deal of stuff has happened since then. I took a new job that uprooted us from our home and support system. It is a great job (and I’ve already been promoted), but it was hard to leave. The newest bit of information is that I started on… Read More

Request for seven things about me
So, Shannon posted on her blog seven things about herself in reply to a nomination she received. Then she asked me to do the same. I guess I put it off because I didn’t figure that anyone would really want to know about me. However, she asked and is something that I can do for her. So read if you… Read More

Awesome Easter Bunny!
The Easter Bunny is awesome! At our house, the Easter Bunny’s name is Shannon. I know that you are all already aware that my wife is awesome. Sunday, she surpassed even herself. She has been shopping for months for the boys Easter baskets, because we didn’t want to over do the candy. They got… Read More

Out of the mouth of babes…
Do you know the show “Kids say the darnedest things”? That is a true statement if there ever were one. My boys are totally adorable. This post though, is about my Non-D 5 year old, Jackson. Now, let me preface this post with the fact that Jackson is “all boy”. He loves to play rough, race his cars,… Read More

A Poem for that horrible day
I wrote this shortly after coming home from the hospital with Joshua, after a long stay in the PICU:  Your skin so pale  like gray fallen snow  with fear and concern all around  your eyes stayed closed  and your body so limp  in stillness you made not a sound  The… Read More

Can’t the bank hand out fruit to kids…not lollipops?
So I went through the bank drive through yesterday to make a deposit. I had both boys with me in the car, and we were jamming to some kid friendly music. I saw the teller getting my envelop ready, and watched her pick up two lollipops. I got annoyed. I don’t know why though. When i was a kid, i… Read More

The boomerang should stay in Australia
When I was a kid, I loved the thought of playing with a boomerang. I had seen them in several shows and just thought they were the coolest thing ever. Then, I went to the museum of natural history on a field trip, and you will never believe what the were selling in the gift shop. For a mere… Read More

Tired of lows!?!?
Why is there no middle ground?  Does it have to be black or white, right or wrong, sweet or sour?  High or low!  That is the problem.  Joshua is either soaring up in the 300’s or plummeting overnight.  He did it again last night, and we were out of bananas.  That may… Read More

Why do I fight it!
So, I was eating some delicious whole wheat pasta that my beautiful wife made tonight, and I was craving some bread.  This started because I knew that my wife had picked up an awesome loaf of cheddar bread the other day.  As I took my first bite, Joshua reached out and sweetly said “Da… Read More

Tired!
A no D post huh?  OK…..I am tired.  I used to be an EMT with a the Virginia Beach Rescue Squad and I pulled 12 hour over night shifts every Wednesday and still went to work the next day.  I have been tired before.  Do you want to know the difference.  I can’t catch up… Read More

Overnight lows suck!
Ok, really.  He is 19 months old.  When he sleeps, we let him sleep.  Thats how all parents feel about babies.  If they are asleep they are happy, and more importantly, not crying.  So you never wake a sleeping baby, right?  So why  does his body choose 3:45 am to… Read More

Fishing with the boys!
I had a great day today.  We have my Sister-in-law’s wedding next month, and my wife and Mother-in-law used today to find THE Mother of the bride dress.  Anyway, I decided not to let being “Shannon-less” scare us into staying in the house.  The boys and I went to church, and… Read More

Funny how stages change?
Isn’t it funny how your stages can change back and forth.  I feel like we have moved past denial, anger, and depression to acceptance for the most part.  More often than not, that anger seeps back in.  I woke up this morning to find that our new desk was completely organized, all of… Read More

Why Moms are the glue…
So I was thinking about something today.  My family would be in utter turmoil if not for the day to day actions of my beautiful wife.  I know that I am biased, but I know that there is no one in the world that can do what she does.  We have two wonderful boys, though I very often act… Read More

Days don’t get worse than that…Day 1
Although it wasn’t a typical weekend, at wasn’t unusual either.  “Mommy” had left for a Creative Memories conference Friday afternoon which was in Baltimore.  The little guy, Joshua, had been “teething” pretty bad and was out of sorts.  That’s pretty typical for an 11 month… Read More

First attempt
Ok, so I used to write a lot.  I actually get a lot of enjoyment of putting words down on the proverbial paper.  Now, have I made time to actually sit down and write in recent years.  No.  I have seen over the last several months how blogging has given my beautiful wife a… Read More
