Fantastic news x
Thanks Sally, I was going a bit insane. Bad luck being late on a Friday night. Have since found out that they should have rung the pediatric on call emergency number and they have 24 hr cover from the pediatric diabetes team. She should have been taken to the children's ward as she was under 17 and we would have been able to be with her, have access to the specialists and all kit etc. Still, under the correct team now. We have our first video call meeting with the team today all together. I feel like a new person all over again and am dredging my brain trying to remember how MDI works.Fab news - and she's lucky to have a good teacher to help her to get used to it all! It must have been awful for you all, not being allowed to be together when she was in hospital, I’d have been going spare
Thanks so much @brisr949 that is so thoughtful, especially as you have had your own recent hospital stay to deal with.Sorry to bump an old thread but was just interested to see how she is doing now, has she settled into it well?.
An essential shopping trip is order to choose fav sweeties for hypo treatment You are never to old to appreciate the delights of sweet choices See there is an advantage to having diabetes.We are struggling with lows at the moment as her pancreas kicks back into gear now it is being helped by the insulin.
Is this the anticipated fear that it's going to hurt? If so would the cream that you put on before an injection help her? I can't remember what it's called but from what I remember it can be bought in the chemist shop. Some parents call it the magic cream as it numbs the area for injection.She still really struggles with the needles, but remains amazingly positive. Am very proud of her.
That honeymoon period is so inappropriately named!!!She is now 3 weeks in from diagnosis. We are struggling with lows at the moment as her pancreas kicks back into gear now it is being helped by the insulin. The good old honeymoon period. She still really struggles with the needles, but remains amazingly positive. Am very proud of her.
