7 years since diagnostic and the first seizure happened this morning and of course I am not there. my 13 years is at the beach with his dad, who did all the correct things, glucagon and emergency room, but what is next?
to those of you with t1, or parents of t1 kids: what happens next? is he going to feel lousy? how long? are there long term effects?
Yes I could call our endo, but I know it will be faster to read all your replies.
and yes, I am going to have a CGM slapped on his belly faster than he can count to three! which leads to another discussion: Should a 13 years old KNOW better AND be held responsible for going to bed after a whole day at the beach with a scant minus 20% on his basal when he absolutely knows that he is subject to serious delayed lows after exercise?
thank you for reading; this is one of those days when I am hit really hard with the reality of T1.
