I thankfully had a little bit of a clue what good and bad BG numbers were in the hospital but being in the state I was in, all I could do is write them down when the nurses took them.
But they talked about so many other things that I didnt even understand and my sleep deprived, emotional brain couldn't process.
What I wish is that another mother of a 2 year old with T1 diabetes had walked in the door to be my "doctor to emotional mother" translator.
I walked out with a sliding scale and set carb counts for a 2 year old child which is ridiculous - I wish I would have had someone there to tell me that I could fight for a basal-bolus approach (well, and she would have had to tell me what that meant, too)
