My daughter had to be taken to the ER on Tuesday and we just got home last night. We are dealing with the sudden onset of diabetes. She's 15. I am here and around, but not focused. We have had so much handed to us that our focus is on counting, dividing, and administering. Not so much the ponies. We are trying to get a handle on this so that she may still get to go on the BEB trip.

In that regard, if you have dealings with me for ponies, I will get to you. It just may not be this very second.

For those I owe ponies (or will owe as soon as payment comes in), I will get them out this week weather permitting.

Bear with me please and thanks for understanding that our lives (and lifestyle) just got completely turned upside down. She is on the road to recovery, but was close enough to going into a coma for days that her health is our focus.

Thank you all. She's doing good counting and giving herself the shots, but today out of nowhere, her feet are very swollen. So while her feet are up and we are in between meals (yay), moms on here ;)

Our family went through the same thing 7 years ago when our daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Pediatric ICU is not a fun place! Best wishes to your family as you continue to learn about the condition and manage it successfully. It does get easier and becomes a regular part of life after a while. If you ever want to talk about it, you can PM me any time. Take care!

Oh I am so sorry to hear this! :hugg I am glad to hear she is home and doing better! I know when I have swollen feet (for a different health reason) if I can't get my feet up, my doctor recommends those compression stockings. If you/she are flying to BEB you might want to check with her doctor just in case. They aren't expensive but do help!

The dr mentioned those yesterday. With us flying all day out and then all day back, I think we will be looking into some. Also I think we are going to need something for all day with her feet dangling at school.

Thanks. It's much appreciated. And it is getting easier. Thankfully. She had her first day back at school today. There's no nurse there but we got lucky enough to have the secretary helping us. Her brother had his show up when he was nine and I'd say he'd be in his 50's now, so she knows all the signs to look for. And they've been very good about having snacks. It's a small private school though. Next year I'll have to get a plan in place. It'll be public high school.

We are now down to calling the dr once a day to recap instead of every meal. It's kind of a relief. Means we're getting it too.

I'm glad to hear things are improving. The adjustment period is a bear.

This one is yours :). Once clay starts going on them it will be easier to tell.

Well so far we've had a forgotten bs check, a run out of supplies, and two panics. All avoidable if someone just looked at the papers. This isn't suprising.

Ya but I didn't think I'd still be babysitting his stuff. But it looks like her blood sugar is higher than it should be consistently, while she was gone for the weekend. I seriously hope it's all under control by the time we fly out for the BEB. I know it said they aren't doing special menus so we will Definately be traveling with snacks. She's been good at her shots but it doesn't really say in the book how low her carbs can be at a meal and still be ok. From what she's saying, the carbs per meal at her dads have been 20-50 when the discharge papers say 80. How much, if anything, could that hurt her? Here at home, I'm constantly trying to keep her from going over.
