My daughter was diagnosed with childrens type 1 on Monday and we are still in the hospital, hopefully out by this Friday afternoon. She is 8 years old, and needless to say, she is not happy. When we got to the ER Monday afternoon her blood sugar level was 770, which I found out later is super hi. We have been learning lots about this stupid thing called diabetes over the last few days, and WOW is all I have to say. Looks like some work is ahead of us all. All the blood checking, and shots are not going over to well for her right now, but she will just have to get use to it and go from there. Anyone else have type 1 or type 2 with any encouraging words I can pass along to her, she is really down and bummed. Any advice you have for me would be great too. Thanks.
