I'm here for some input and thoughts from fellow moms with diabetic children...here is my dillema nad I am wondering if any of you have been in this situation and if so what have you done???? Here it is...my 6 yr old son...non diabetic...my 5yr old daughter..type 1 diabetic diagnosed last Feb. We have no history of diabetes in our family and when she was born we did not have her stem cells collected. Now...with this 3rd baby I am contemplating.. do I or don't I? I know there is much research in progress having to do with using one's OWN stem cells to cure diabetes. Now... first of all....it's kind of expensive...but money aside...is it wrong to have this baby's stem cells and possibly be able to cure this child if ever a diabetic...but not be able to give my daughter the same gift? From what I have read, a sibling's stem cells can not ever be used to cure diabetes...only for themselves...I really do not know what to do...I would feel horrible if I could "fix" one and not the other, it would kill me....but then is it wrong to not at least give one a chance for a cure this route????? Please give any and all thoughts...they are always greatly appreciated...no one can understand like another type 1's mom.
