    I know that when Andrew was diagnosed I felt that my family and friends just figured that we'd be fine because we're already caring for one D child.

    I think that knowing what to do only meant that I wasn't numb to the emotional pain because I was too caught up in the whirlwind of identifying and counting carbs and being tossed into the storm of diabetes. I felt the pain of Andrew's diagnosis to a much greater extent than Brians.

    You will be okay. Your kids will be okay, too. Allow yourself time to grieve and hang in there...

    sending many cyber hugs to you and your beautiful family...

    It's bad enough reading about new D parents coming to this board but reading about a 2nd diagnosis in the family is really lousy news :(

    yes, it is.....

    Thanks everyone for all of the support, it helps.

    He's got good attitute and we certainly know so much more than we did 3 years ago when Kendall was diagnosed. I know we'll be ok, but I think I'll take a day to feel sorry for all of us....then it's back to work!

    I know exactly how you are feeling...my second son was diagnosed a little over a year ago. We just found out recently that our youngest son carries all the antibodies and it is just a matter of time before he is diagnosed as well. Hang in there and know that you have several people on your side!

    Paula, I'm so sorry. I hate diabetes. I hope he will feel better soon & the stomachaches will disappear. Hang in there! I'm sending prayers for your family.
