Well, I'm on my way back to Colorado. Last Sunday I received that exciting call I had waited so long for. I jumped on an air ambulance and made my way to Houston. Unfortunately when my surgeon saw the donor pancreas it wasn't in good enough condition. Quite an experience. I know God has a plan for me and this just wasn't meant to happen right now.

On this day 19 years ago I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes aka juvenile diabetes. That day changed my life forever. Having this disease has made me the woman I am today. I have fought hard to keep my health. Besides my hypoglycemia unawareness I'm very healthy. I have pushed myself every day to beat this disease. My family and I celebrate this day every year. We celebrate me being here! Not letting this disease beat me or define me. I'm hoping next year I'll be celebrating my transplant day. I cannot put into words how thankful I am to have so much love and support from so many people. THANK YOU ALL!
