Phillip was hardly ever sick before he was diagnosed with type 1. He was 4 1/2 years old when dx. on 3/8/2010. At that point I could count the number of time he had experienced an episode of vomiting (twice), he had never had antibiotics, never had an ear infection and only had a few colds. In fact when he was diagnosed was the first time I had to take him to the Dr for an illness. That was all very different from his older brother who caught every germ that came along, had tubes in his ears (twice!) etc.
Since then it has all fallen apart and it seems like he has illness after illness. Is this normal? No one else in the family has been sick (older brother or younger brother) and we homeschool. THe only thing that is different now is that he has diabetes. sigh
And whenever he gets sick he gets very low, so it really sets me on edge. It seems to make a disease that does not always play by the rules even harder to figure out.
Sorry for the rant, I am just so frustrated.
