Bathtime, 7 pm.
"Mom, do you remember the heart wires?"
"Heart wires? You mean the heart wires in the hospital?"
"Yeah, you held them while I went potty. They were here, and here and here on me."
"Yes, I remember. It was hard to go potty with them on."
"I didn't like them. I took them off myself, all by myself. The doctor told me I could."
"Oh G, I do remember that. You were so brave to take them off yourself."
"I mean, I liked the hospital, the playroom and the presents. That I liked. I just, you know, didn't like the other parts. You know what I didn't like?"
"What, what parts didn't you like?"
"Well, the shots. The nurse who woke me up at night. Crying, I didn't like crying a lot. I didn't like when you cried. That made me upset. I was upset when you cried Mom."
"I did cry, you're right. I was upset that you had diabetes. Mommy and Daddy love you and didn't want you to have diabetes. I remember crying."
"You didn't have to cry. It was ok. It was ok that I got diabetes. I mean, it's ok."
"I'm trying to be ok with it G. It's hard for mommy to be ok with it sometimes."
"Yeah, I know, but you should know that I am ok with diabetes. I mean, I didn't die. I was worried I was gonna die, but I didn't. That should make you ok with it."
"So G, I'll remember that next time I am not ok with diabetes, that you didn't die and are ok with it?"
