    I am so sorry. I wish I had the right words or good advice. I would talk to Meri of OurDiabeticLife.com 3 out of 4 of her boys are type 1. She may have some more comforting words.

    it always breaks my heart to read or hear of another dx'd, especially within one family. Allow yourself time to grieve. It never fails to amaze me what we, as parents of these amazing children, are capable of. Hang in there...(believe me, if I can manage, so can you).

    I am very sorry. Your diligence to observe that something was up will hopefully mean a long honeymoon.

    I am so, so sorry to hear this. Nate had an early diagnosis where he didn't start insulin right away either. I think it gave him some time to adjust to the idea and the transition was easier.

    This just breaks my heart for you and your family. Wishing you all an easy transition, nothing is ever easy with this but I'm hopeful that things go as smoothly as possible.

    Tough stuff, I'm really sorry.

    I am so sorry. I think that the second diagnosis is harder because we know exactly what we and they are in for. That being said, I hardly remember now what it was like before they were both diagnosed, although it was years apart. It is likely that they will be very different, especially with being boy and girl and the age difference. Your son sounds like he is going to handle it well, and that leads to parent's being able to deal with it better.
    The only advice that I can think of to give you is to try to sell him on an insulin pump earlier rather than later. My son is still doing MDI's and I know he would be on a pump if I had been able to get him one when he was younger. Insurance was not approving them then like they do now, and it would have meant another 3 days in the hospital.
