I am new to this site. I've found it to be very helpful. My 9 year old daugther was diagnosed in October with type 1 diabetes. This came as a total shock to us. One weekend she woke up just totally out of it, so we took her to the emegency room and next thing we know she was being transferred to another hospital that specializes in diabetes. She was in ICU for 2 days her sugar level was over 380 when she was admitted to the emergency room. She stayed in the hospital for 4 days. I had to get a crash course in carb counting and insulin injections and everything else that comes along with diabetes. It's been a very long and sometimes frustrating process but what can I say it's the hand that was dealt us. I just know that we will do whatever necessary to make sure that she is healthy & that diabetes will not hinder her in any way.
what a wonderful name your daughter has: Lolo! That's just so cute!
I'm sorry to hear though, that Lolo is now also one of us. It's no fun to get diagnosed diabetic. I can imagine you people being in shock.
How is Lolo coping?
But you're a mom and you'll do just fine. Moms would do anything for their children.
