21 years ago my son Shawn was brought into life and also sent to Heaven!

November 7th will always…

The thing is, they do worry about me!



So much so that I was the subject of my…

Posted on October 20, 2011 at 9:30am 1 Comment

The big "D" all started for me during my last pregnancy. This was my fouth pregnancy and so far I had never had any concerns at all about Diabetes or Gestational Diabetes.



I remember it as if it were yesterday, although it was almost 9 years ago.



I was camping with…
