Last night was the first time I checked out juvenation. My four year old son Alex was dx almost 5 months ago with T1. He handles it so well it's amazing and I was doing pretty good just doing what we had to do. But I'm starting to freak out about the flu. He goes tomorrow for regular flu shot. Still waiting for H1N1 shot to arrive but having serious concerns about it's safety. Wondering what other parents think about it. He goes to preschool and I wonder if I should take him out. But his twin brother goes too and 6 yr old sis goes to first grade so they'll be bringing germs home so is it worth it? I don't want to home school, don't believe in it but the flu scares me to death.
(This is gonna be long - sorry!) So, while reading last night I saw so many parents with multiple children with T1 and I started having a hard time breathing. Do you all have a history in the family? We don't have a history of T1, so how worried do I need to be about my other two children? Alex has an identical twin brother and the endo said not to worry, but of course I do.
So, I finally ripped myself away from the computer at 3:00 am and tested Alex before bed and he was only at 77! Had to get him up to eat. He was 134 before bedtime snack of ice cream, milk & lunchmeat. Endo said this was great snack because of protein & fat to last long and he really does so well on it that I wouldn't have tested him if I wasn't freaked out by reading so much last night. So I brought him to bed with me and got no sleep.
Somebody talk to me, my husband just says it'll be fine, don't worry.
