Continued prayers for your family.
Prayers for your daughter!
I'm sosorry....this is such a fear of mine, and I'm constantly on alert when one of the kids is drinking a lot or using the bathroom frequently.
((HUGS)) and prayers. It's never a good day to be dx'd but I hope everyone got to enjoy their Christmas morning at least.
I'm so sorry. My thoughts are with you and your family.
looking for the update...hope things are ok
sending prayers yr way....
Wow - thank you all so much for your prayers! Well, our worst nightmare has come true. Alex was diagnosed with Type 1. We did catch it early, I suppose. Her AIC was 8.2. She has no symptoms other than thirst so no ketones at all. She is absolutely devastated, which has been hard to see. She is a smart girl and knows how important it is to be vigilant about her care. I don't think we've all had time to soak it all in. When it hits, I'll probably sob for a few hours. Right now, I'm in shock, I think. They did let us come home today with a full day of appointments scheduled for Monday. I can't tell you how much all the well-wishes mean, truly. The nurses in the ER went to the gift shop and bought her a huge bag of gifts and a balloon and came and sang her a crazy birthday song. Then, today, Child Life brought her a big bag of Christmas gifts so they really tried to make her birthday/Christmas as special as possible considering the circumstances. Thank you again and continue to keep us in your prayers. I'll be posting more questions about all of the little things about injections, etc. that I've forgotten!
I'm so sorry to hear your news. I'll say a prayer for your family.
I'm so very sorry that this has happened. My thoughts and those of my family are with you and your family.
Very sorry to hear this. You and all your family will be in our prayers.
I'm so sorry to read this. Hugs and prayers. Happy Birthday to Alex though and a Merry Christmas to your family. Sucks.
I'm so sorry to hear this Christy, I will keep you all in my prayers as well.
I am sending you all a big (( hug )).
I'm so sorry. This has been weighing on my Christmas all day. We have talked about this as a family and prayed for you all. It's quite a roller coaster with 2 D's, but you can do it. Your 14 year old will amaze you. She will be brave and strong. Mine is. She can e-mail yours when she's ready. Morgan has been dealing with this for over 9 years. prayers to you all...
I'm so sorry, that was sweet of the Hosp. staff. She must have made a big impression:cwds: She sure has a lot wrapped up in one day (((((HUGS)))))
I am so sorry!
just couldnt sleep and saw this post. wow. so sorry for this other wammy. what a blessing though that you caught it and you knew how to deal with it. Our warm prayers and thoughts are going your way!!
I'm so, so sorry to hear about your daughter. I had prayed for her high numbers to be something simple.
My son's birthday is on Christmas and I thought of your daughter yesterday as he was opening his presents.
I will continue to pray that you can easily learn all that you need to know to take care of your daughter's diabetes.
Sending another round of (((HUGS))) and prayers for Alex and your family.
So sorry to hear......prayers from Buffalo.
So sorry you are having to deal with this - and right now . . . I hope with all the commotion you had the chance to sit and still have a bit of Holiday cheer. I know the next few weeks will be emotional - ((hugs)) your way! Blessings for your New Year. Glad you were able to catch this early! But sad that you had to "catch" it at all!
