Okay, I have a confession to make.
When Matthew was first diagnosed with diabetes, and I learned the reality of shots and all those finger pricks, one of my first concerns was: "Will he still be able to play the piano?"
Yes, it's the piano teacher in me, but I'm being truthful. I mean, wouldn't you expect his fingers to get sore from being pricked 10 times a day?
I was definitely concerned. Matthew has only recently found joy in playing the piano and I didn't want diabetes to ruin that for him.
Well, it didn't. We're a couple months in and he has never voiced one complaint about his fingers being sore. Though I will say, his fingers are already getting callused over, and that makes me a little sad, but hey, he can still play the piano!
Here's his recital piece for this year. He's still working out a couple parts, but I hope you'll enjoy!
