Hello. I am new to this site and all of Diabetes in general. We are a week into our diagnosis and boy is this a ride. Our brief situation - My daughter is 2.5 years old (barely) and was drinking a crazy amount, tired, clingy, and excessive urination for the last 2 weeks. Last Friday, January 30th, we decided to take her to her PCP and check her out. Her blood sugar was 799!! They immediately sent us on to the ER. When we got there it was 900-1000.... We stayed for 4 days and finally got it down to 200's regularly. Praise Jesus she didn't have any acid or ketones (stumped the doctors with how high her #'s were.. but we know who was in control). We got home this past Monday - and Aubrey just wasn't herself. So, I took her back to the doctor and sure enough... our hospital stay resulted in the flu. We caught it early and it has now left the building. HOLY COW, first few days home and having to do sick day care along with learning what everything means.... has been the hardest week of our lives. We have a great endocrinologist team and are very thankful for their support. We are seeing great #'s and doing our best to handle everything we can. So, I posted seeking out other parents of Toddlers who have been recently diagnosed,... or those whose children were diagnosed this young. Your posts have been so helpful and I have spent any free hours - reading and learning. Thank you for posting your stories and wisdom. Thank you!!
