The one comment I always struggled with was when we were coming home from the hospital and my neighbor was outside and came over to see us. She knew we had been in the hospital and of the diagnosis, so theoretically, she had time to choose her words. But, alas, no. She told my daughter she would be fine, and that she had diabetes when she was pregnant and it went away. Now, my kid was 4 at the time. She took EVERYTHING literally. Almost daily, she came up to ask when her diabetes was going away like Mrs. X did. Now, 7 years later, when she hears the term gestational diabetes, she always take a minute to say "remember when..." and "what the heck was she thinking???" Out of the mouth of babes.
