Welcome to the best club nobody wants to be a part of. Everything that everyone else has posted so far is true, but as the father of a young man that was diagnosed at 10, I want you to know that I believe that there is a special place in heaven reserved for parents of kids who were diagnosed when they were still little bitty. I think you will be thankful that you were put on Lantus and Novolog first instead of NPH/regular insulin and Novolog. It makes for a much more flexible life, IMO. Ask any question you have. There is always someone logged on that can help you find the answers and support that you need.
