My husband is a type one diabetic and was in a severe car accident in May, he will be coming home soon and is now wheelchair bound and has had many severe injurys, he may walk after awhile but never a lot. his right side was paralized for almost 2 months and still is partially. He is unable to care for himself he can not even stand on his own yet. We have been married for 3 1/2 years now and so i do know some about diabetes and know a lot about checking sugar and normal sugar levels due to myslef being hypoglycemic and helping him with lows. I have learned now how to give him shots, and how to give him juice in his feeding tube. He just started eating 2 weeks ago buts till has a feeding tube is only able to eat small amounts of soft and pureed foods so far. Hes relearning how to swallow. Only way he can have liquids is on a spoon by the half teaspoon by someone else so far. Its been a long painful road but were coming along. The guy who tboned him in his door at 90mph says it was just an accident and that he should not be punished. He thinks he got off with 2 weeks in jail but we got a lawsuit pending. He had no ins so ours has to pick up the bills, over 5 million dollars so far. This is all wearing me down so much. I want to be able to support him as much as i can i dont let him see how im doing, but its hard. Im praying its easier when hes home. Trying to learn all i can about his diabetes and controlling it when lifes so off kilter for us.
