My story is just like all of yours. My sweet three year old son Kylor had been acting weird, drinking so much that we went from nearly potty trained to diapers. He started loosing weight (although I didn't really notice until a week or two in) and was just not "right" I asked at his daycare if he seemed abnormal, but they said a lot of the kids drink a lot of water. I asked in my family but they all thought he was fine and I was crazy. So last Sunday (the 17th) I got up in the morning (after changing his sheets 5 times the night before) watched him down a bottle of water and then he started puking. I took him into the er more out of frustration than anything else. I figured I would take him in, let them tell me I'm crazy, and then go on with life. Well as you know I wasn't crazy, his BG was 600 and before I knew what was happening I was on the phone with my husband telling him our sweet little boy has diabetes. Then came talk of helicopters and a week in the big hospital 2 hours away and diabetes keto acidosis and PICU's..... I would like to say that now we are home and I am thinking clearly and everything is fine. But I can't think straight, my whole mind is so consumed with my sons level and what I'm reading, when our next appt is ect... I seriously almost burned down the kitchen the other day. On top of that is the whole daycare issue, right now my husband and I are both working part time at our jobs for a few weeks one of us in the morning the other in the afternoon.... life is just a little bit upside down and backwards. We also have two older non T1 (for now thank God) daughters 11 and 9. I was wondering how you all coped, how long does the "fog" last and for those of you with other kids how did you work it out so they still felt included when all the attention is focused on the one?
