Hello everyone. My husband and I are the proud parents of two great kids! An eight year old and a four year old. Two days before this Thanksgiving our four year old was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. Before we even had a chance to absorb the information we were given, we had to hit the ground running. Our minds have been filled with so much information! The last four days have begun to gradually get better and looking back we have already come a long way. But we are all just mentally exhausted! Our son is such a trooper and is slowly getting better with his daily "pokes" but it is by no means easy........yet. I am so thankful that we were able to catch this early and although it is not something that we can fix or make better for him, there is comfort in knowing that this is not a life threatening situation and with proper care he will still lead a long, healthy, normal life. These days have been hard and emotionally draining but I'm praying they will get better. I look forward to meeting and chatting with others who share the same ups and downs.
