As parents when we are handed our new born baby we check to see if they have ten fingers and ten toes. If that checks out then we know that we have a "perfect" baby, right. Right? So my husband and I thought. We had forgotten the little fact that 1) I have had type 1 diabetes since I was 9 and 2) we have a 7 year old type 1 diabetic daughter so there was more for us to think about then fingers and toes.
Daniel was like any baby. He eat, cry, slept, did all the normal baby stuff. It was not until 13th of this month that things changed. His diaper was changed four times in 14 minutes. They were completely wet. He was eating more than he was usually eating that is when he was not sleeping.
So Mike being the husband and father that he is acts fast and calls the doctor office and makes an appointment for Daniel. I take him in today. I tell the doctor everything that has been going on and he checks Daniel's blood sugar. It was 560. My Mighty Mouse bg was 560 wth!!
I should have been prepared for this right. I mean I have it, my daughter have it there was a big chance that he might get it. What a hit I got today. Just needed to talk to people who would understand what I was feeling.
I'm still trying to get over the shock from the news. That is if I ever will.
