...and a piece of me died inside. My emotions are wearing me thin, and sleep has been elusive at best. It's just such a game changer, I've yet to come to terms with the scope of it all. I guess it's been getting a bit better every day, I still feel overwhelmed. No one ever mentions the financial implications of having a child with chronic disease. We've been home since Wed. evening, and it's been going OK. We've been speaking to the Endo Clinic twice daily, and the Endocrinologist a couple times as well. I'm not intimidated by the day to day clinical management of the disease......but moreso by the big picture stuff.
