I saw these questions asked before and thought the answers were kind of interesting.....
Where is everyone from? How old was your child when diagnosed with type 1? and if your child goes to school are there other children in your school with type 1 diabetes?
My son was diagnosed when he was 5 1/2 years old, he is now 11 yrs. old. No one in our family had diabetes so it came to a complete shock! Talk about changing your life in an instant!
We are now living in Southeast Wisconsin, about 20 min. south of Milwaukee.
My son has one other little girl that goes to his school with diabetes. And from what I understand there is going to be a new student in K-5 that will start next year. It just seems to be more and more common each year. Thank GOD for the ladies in the school's office....they are all such a big help!! We have a school nurse but she is only there about once a week. At our school, the staff really makes sure they have all of the details. And I know it is not like that everywhere so I am grateful for that! Looking forward to hearing from you all!
