Yeeee Hawwwww! Many of you know that Nikki has struggled with an incredibly low immune system for the last few years, which is complicated (not caused) by T1. This past February she had her tonsils and adenoids removed in hopes that their removal would help with the chronic sinus infections; in turn help her overall immune system.

I am very PROUD to report that for the first time since kindergarten -- the first time in 5 years -- Nikki just completed her first MONTH of PERFECT ATTENDANCE!!!!!!!!! She is so proud of herself. She's always known that her continuous illnesses were not caused by T1 but she is a kid and sometimes she just felt like she was always sick because of diabetes and then she would be worried she would always be sick because she was always going to have diabetes. Today, her T1 Giant shrank a bit in Nikki's mind and I couldn't be happier!

Seems like a small thing to many people, but for Nikki this was one ginourmous hurdle and she tackled it head on like she does everything else. Like I said YEEEEE HAWWWW that can also be translated to PRAISE THE LORD!!
