Been on this site since the beginning but just found my way back. A lot has happened in that time. Not only am I Type 1 but we had 3 of our 4 children diagnosed with Type 1 all within 18 months. We are all pumping with MM Revels. I am wearing a cgm and Elizabeth (the youngest) will be getting a sensor hopefully next week. You can see their pictures on my profile. But anyhow....Hi!

Welcome back. Sorry to hear about your kids. 2 of my 4 have T1, dx 10 months apart. Stories like yours point strongly to environmental triggers. So far my other 2 are T1 auto-antibody free, have been for 3 years. still praying that it stays that way! Glad to hear you are getting CGMs. Not sure how we would do it without ours! helps me keep kids and dosing straight.
