The house is decorated, Christmas parties are in full swing and presents are wrapped.
This time last year, we were in the midst of Andrew's diabetes diagnoses and were just finding out that he had celiac disease. Luckily, he was able to somewhat enjoy his favorite foods through the holiday season before he had to say goodbye forever to his most treasured wheat treats.
As I was packing up some diet hot chocolate and gluten free cookies today for a church party, it really hit me on how far we have come. Andrew has done an amazing job with his healthy nutrition and switching over to gluten free foods. Trust me when I say, "IT WAS NOT EASY!"
I'd like to take a moment to thank the whole DOC for the wonderful support that you have graciously extended to us over this past year. Thank you and God Bless you and your families throughout the Christmas Season!
