Children with diabetes type 1 is a source of heartache. This is a tricky time for any family at diagnosis but perhaps more heartbreaking is the ongoing, daily, hourly, nightly task to test and maintain and attempt to prevent, fail and try again.
Hard work does not describe it. Relentless, taxing, intensely debilitating mind body and soul of a parent never mind the little one.
Siblings, family members and friends get drawn into the taxation.
So the closer we get to a faultless closed-loop the happier my little heart beats.
