Hi everyone! I am a mom to three beautiful girls. They are 12,9,&7. My nine year old was diagnosed Type 1 in July when she was in DKA. She was in very bad shape. Kidneys were shutting down and the first hospital we took her to started her on too much insulin too fast and the Dr told us if she made it throught he night she may have brain damage. With lots of prayer our Natalie came home five days later with no organ damage. She has been a trooper. She has taken all her BS and given herself all her injections since the day she was diagnosed. I am so proud of her. I think that we have done pretty well with it. Her A1C was 13 when she was diagnosed and at her three month appointment it was 6.0 so I am happy with that. Now that the "newness" has worn off though she has just started telling me that she is tired of having diabetes and that she doesn't want to have it anymore. I try to stay strong...but you know what...I agree with her!!! I don't tell her that, but I too am tired of her having to have diabetes and I don't want her to have it anymore either. Everytime I have gone to this website I feel myself welling up and want to cry. I don't do it in front of her. Everyone keeps telling me how well I am doing with it all, but I wonder...why do I still cry?
