Today sucked

  1. My second child just got diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Thank goodness he was not in DKA and was able to come home.

    Lantus and Novolog until the pump and CGMS gets here. Sad mommy.

    You have been presented with a huge challenge, both as a nurse and a mother.
    You are a professional that can handle it.
    Juvenile diabetes is a b*tch.

    Good luck, you've got this

    I'm sorry. This stinks. You've got this, though. (((Hugs)))

    Man… that's a lot to handle. Just think, though, how lucky your kid is to have a nurse for a mom who knows how to manage their condition and you obviously already know how to handle it because of your other child with the diagnosis. Best of luck to you. *Sending good Thoughts

    *hugs* This is the suck. My little brother was diagnosed right around the holidays too. Best of luck to you and your family in adjusting to this big change. You guys have got this!

    I'm sorry. Your kid is fortunate to have you but there's getting around the suckage and how it must feel. Sending hugs and support.
