My 3 year old was diagnosed on July 12. He hadn't been feeling good for a while; I couldn't get him into his pediatrician, so I took him to our walk-in clinic and they sent us to the er. When they checked his blood sugar, it was 1600. They had to transfer him to a larger town about an hour and a half away. It took all of the first night and most of the next day to get his blood sugar down. He spent about 5 days in the hospital. It's a lot to take in and learn in such a short time. We are doing good so far.
I'll tell you more about myself; I'm a stay at home mom. I have 2 children, a 7 year old girl and my son. My daughter will be in 2nd grade this year, and my son will be in his 2nd year of preschool. He started preschool early because he was a little delayed in his learning; he's doing much better now and has caught up with others his age. He'll end up having 3 years of preschool though.
I'm a little nervous about school starting again. I'm scared of not being there if something happens. I know I have to let go and trust every thing will be fine. After all I can't be with him every moment of the rest of his life.
I'm trying to learn all that I can about type 1 and nutrition. I'd appreciate it if someone can point me in the right direction. There is so much out there it can be overwhelming. I need some recipes and ideas for meal time. It can be a challenge with a 3 year old getting them to eat the right things, and to get a variety of foods that they are willing to try.
