It's started....the flashbacks from a year ago. Seeing a Toys For Tots ad reminded me .....and gave me an idea. I won't share that idea with you now. What I will share with you (hopefully) is a day by day flashback of the week leading up to J.J.'s diagnosis. I'm not sure if I shared this yet.....I feel like I've written it down somewhere...sometime....but I can't find it. If I'm repeating myself bear with me as I share this flashback.
It was on this day one year ago my "mama gut", woman's intuition, or whatever you want to call it kicked in. J.J. had been severely wetting the bed for two weeks straight......no days off. Something just didn't set right with me. In the back of my mind I thought it was something more serious than just a boy sleeping really hard and not waking up in the night. It was too consistent and the volume was incredible.
It was on this day I remember thinking maybe it could be diabetes. Don't ask me why I thought that because I knew absolutely nothing about the disease or how it manifested itself.
I remember asking my girls to pray for J.J. I didn't tell them a whole lot. I didn't want to scare them because my "gut" was telling me something. But I wanted them to pray for wisdom. That their daddy and I would know when or if we should take J.J. to see a doctor. I remember them looking at me like I was a little strange because J.J. seemed somewhat normal, just the bedwetting.....no big deal, right?
Check in tomorrow.....or maybe the day after....for the next flashback installment........:)
