    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. 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, 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.

    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!
