Justin's Story

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Almost 2 months later.....

So this Saturday will be 2 months since Justin's diagnosis.  Things are getting easier, he knows when he's low and will ask to go check his sugar.  He checks it himself at home, will work on him doing the shot when he's ready.  He's shown a little interest in doing it, then says no you do it LOL.  He'll get there! He went to winter camp for a week over the holiday break. It went ok, I'm still nervous about summer camp, but I have no clue what I'd do with him otherwise.

As I'm sitting here typing this, Justin is watching Good Luck Charlie on Disney channel and the TTI came on with Zach who also has type 1 diabetes, Justin gets so excited to see another kid going through the same thing.  Zach also has a team for the JDRF walk and Justin thinks that's cool, he's super excited for our walk on March 2!

The daily grind of diabetes is very exhausting, mentally, I'm constantly worrying, more so when he's at school.  Is he feeling ok? Will he eat something extra? Did he remember to check his sugar before PE? I'm worried about Valentine's day at school, I'm considering giving the teacher a note to send home with the class, asking to please not attach candy to valentines for Justin, but at the same time I feel bad cause he won't have the same as everyone else, and the last thing I want is for him to feel different.  I'm trying so hard to make sure he knows he can do anything and he's a normal kid who just needs to take insulin to stay healthy. I'm more worried that he'll sneak some in aftercare or something.  Like I said always something to worry about.  

Were looking forward to going to the fair in a week, Justin can't wait! I'm really glad he doesn't look forward to fair food, although as he gets older I'm sure he will.  He'll be happy with a slice of pizza and the rides :)  I'm happy were gonna meet some friends there & Justin will have a riding buddy.  Then I can just take pictures instead of getting on the rides.  

He has an endocrinologist appt coming up in just over a week, I'm sure his insulin doses will be adjusted a little.  He's had pretty good numbers though, I can tell, he has so much energy again!!  

One day at a time, one number at a time, keeping the love of our life happy and healthy!
