"I was at the pool with my friends and my Dexcom fell off of me. We found it, but they were all just staring at me!"

Best piece of advice from Ayla's mother: Some days are awful, and some feel "normal." Focusing on the positive things is the best advice I can give. We have made so many friends, attended so many awesome events, and have grown closer as a family through our daughter being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.
