The first week after we came home from the hospital was pretty challenging. So many adjustments and emotional upheaval. But during that week one thing that stands out to me was an ongoing conversation Sugar Bear started about what if (fill in superhero name) had type 1 diabetes. It made us laugh. It gave opportunity for me to answer questions about his disease. Sugar Bear loves Hulk, and Wolverine and Iron Man so those were the ones we concentrated on. He's not a DC kid. Last night I found these two blog posts and we had fun reading them with Sugar Bear snuggling and laughing and discussing afterwards. Unfortunately we couldn't find any on Hulk. So here are those sites. Enjoy. http://www.diabetesdaily.com/voices/2012/11/if-wolverine-had-diabetes/
Sugar Bear is my Superhero!
