Hi.. ok so I am so new to this... our now 3 year old was just diagnosed with type 1 diabetes a week ago. We just got home on a day pass from the hospital yesterday. I couldn't believe it when I heard the news that there was something wrong with my baby boy and that he needed to get to emergency ASAP or we could risk him going into a coma! I was terrified! How could this happen to me.. ? to my perfect angel? I was just in the hospital 3 months before after just having Hudson's baby sister and now we were back for something that would once again change our family dynamic forever. Hudson's Blood Sugar was at 35 when the hospital admitted us. He stayed critically high for 2 days.. so high that the glucose meters of the Pediatric ward couldn't give us a number.. all it would say was high. We endured 2 nights of our little boy screaming and crying for us in his sleep and one night the only place he would sleep was in our arms. Hudson celebrated his 3rd birthday while in the hospital in isolation because he developed a cough and the flu. Now we are home and I am just so terrified and overwhelmed. I have a sweet little 3 month old who needs mommy and a 3 year old who also needs me just as badly. Hudson's blood sugars last night when we tested him at 3am was 3.9.. how in the world do you try to force a sleeping cranky 3 year old to eat all this snack food to bring his blood sugar up? and than throughout the day today he wouldnt eat all the carbs he was supposed to which than made his blood sugar readings anywhere from 5.9 to 5.0... I was a little scared to put him down for a nap since the reading was 4.9.. I am so new at this and the terror and pain and fear is still so new in me.. does any one have any advice on how to feed a reluctant toddler so that its not all the same thing over and over???
