Madi has been fighting highs lately... has a little cough and sore throat today, but doctor says its not contagious and should be good to go to school tomorrow.. I told her we need to keep an eye on her Ketones and she informed me "Diabetes is just crappy!".... I know my 6 year old shouldn't be saying "crappy" but I had to agree with her.. Craig has been fighting ketones today too, sore throat and chills.. (doc says its not strep, just virus). Did you know that T1 kids can get sick easier and also take longer to get better?? When they get sick, its not just take some cold meds and rest.. Its check glucose more, check for Ketones, if they have Ketones, try to flush them out with lots and lots of fluids plus insulin...and sometimes is a hospital visit if you cant get rid of the ketones.. This is one reason we go kind of inactive in the winter.. because people take their sick kids to church and Im super paranoid my kids will get sick.. I hate germs!!! on a happy note we got our tree .Its beautiful and it smells amazing!!!
Guess what?? someone had a birthday!! Miss Madi is 6!!! She wanted a doctor party and to collect color books for the kids at the hospital. It was a lot of fun! They decorated cards for the kids at PCH too!!
