Well we did it! After weeks of planning, while I appeared on two radio shows to speak about Type 1 and JDRF, we finally taped a segment on "Dealing with Diabetes", with our local channel 8 news and the wonderful Paula Francis!
I expected to answer most of the questions and for Justice to chime in but to my amazement it was the other way around! Justice took over!
He explained (in his 8 year old terms) the difference of type 1 and 2, what highs and lows feel like, what a pump is, what he does as a Youth Ambassador for JDRF and how more than anything he wants a cure.
I politely interjected here and there to clarify his answers or explain Ms Francis' questions to him. All and all he was AMAZING!!!
I am so proud of my baby! Mind you an hour before he had a flu shot and for the last 2 weeks hes been battling daytime lows and nightimes highs. But he took it all and stride and did it with a smile on his face.
For those in Vegas interview will be airing tomorrow on Channel 8 at 6pm. I will be requesting a copy so I can upload it ofcourse. Also you can check out Channel 8's website and find the section Dealing With Diabetes. Im sure after tomorrow it will be on there. 8newsnow.com.
Today local news. Tomorrow CNN? Who knows but you can bet we're not done yet!
