Hi everyone. I'm brand new, both here and to the diabetes world. A week ago last Tuesday, in the morning, my ten-month old Charlie (we call him Charlie Bear, hence the handle) was fine. Tuesday afternoon he was sick, saw his pediatrician, was diagnosed with a nondescript bug and was sent home with tylenol. Wednesday morning he was in obvious distress and, upon return to the pediatrician, was immediately taken by ambulance to Children's in Houston. He was critical on arrival with glucose over 850. Instant diagnosis, type 1. After a scary day in the PICU, intubated and wired to the nines, he recovered and was sent to the floor. We just got home from Children's today with the whole works in tow--Humalog, Lantus, 4 precision meters, etc., etc. We are handling things pretty well but obviously have a lot to learn. I figure that I'll probably be a regular here and wanted to intoduce myself. Here's a few pics of Charlie at Children's: Charlie looking the best he could in the PICU Charlie standing up in his crib, getting back to normal Charlie with his grandmother on the floor Anyway, it's a pleasure to meet you all as we start this new journey. Hopefully I'll read read some good stories and get some good advice.
