All I want for Christmas….

Kerri already posted this on her site, but I’m putting it up, too. I can’t say I’ve completely given up hope that there will be a cure some day, but I have always doubted that I’d see one in my lifetime. This, for some reason, has given me a glimmer of hope. Please, oh please, oh please, don’t let it be misplaced.

Now, do I talk to O about this or not? I just don’t know….

    As far as I’m concerned, all research is a possibility. This isn’t a cure. This is a possible cure, but that doesn’t mean it will actually happen. You could tell O that scientists found a new way that diabetes can develop in mice, and this might help answer questions for humans. Honestly, that’s all the article really proves. I’m excited that they’ve discovered a new avenue of research, but that doesn’t mean they have an answer.

    I ditto Allison. It is good to know people really are working on this, but it is a bit too soon to get our hopes flying.

    What Allison said. And hey, it could always spark an interest in knowing the science behind her disease. (Unless she already has the interest.)

    Julia,I just read this over at Vivian’s blog. I have to tell you, it brought tears to my eyes.I don’t know if you should tell Olivia or not. I don’t have that conundrum. Riley is too young to understand. Although, he often says “One day when I get a cure…”There’s nothing wrong with having hope. But, you don’t want to give false hope. It’s tough.

    Oh yeah, and I’d take this as my Christmas present for the rest of my life. If this (a cure) is all I EVER got for Christmas, that would be perfectly fine with me.
