    We found out last week that Haley has to have tubes put in her ears and her adenoids removed. She has gone through 2 rounds of antibiotics and her ears still have fluid. So on the 13th we go for that surgery.:(
    I'm not looking forward to this at all, I know it will be better in the long run, because she has a speech problem, and it's all because she can't hear properly.
    She can't go back to school for 5 to 7 days after. I will go back with her on the 7th day for her Christmas party, and take her back home.
    I have to call the nurses on the 11th to get the Dr. order on how much insulin to give, and than treat it like a sick day, she'll probably have keytones
    :( .
    I really hope that makes her bg#'s better, right now there is no rhyme nor reason to them.:confused:

    Vickie, How scarey. I am so sorry that Haley has to have surgery. I hope that afterwards the numbers improve, and that she feels better. I will keep you all in my warm, and fuzzy happy thoughts, Jamie

    My son (non-d) had that surgery and it was a piece of cake. He recovered quickly with very little pain. It was much more scary for me than him. I hope the same for Haley!

    My son had tubes done (pre-diabetes) 4 days before his first birthday. The worst part was them taking him away from me. But when we were in recovery, he was his typical self and playing like he usually did by the time we got home.

    Ross starting talking much more after it too.

    Your baby will do great. Good luck.

    Good luck to you!!

    My non-D son, Henry, is having his tonsils and adneoids out as well as a nasal surgery done on this Friday. I'd be much more worried if it were Carson -- how do you deal with blood sugars in a surgery??? And when they can't eat much afterwards. Yuck.

    With Henry, I'm just planning on a lot of ice cream...

    I hope Haley does well!!

    Thanks for the input:D . I have no idea what to expect as far as the pain she will experience. I handle just about anything, but when it comes to my children in pain, UUUGGHHHH:(
