Yes, the wait is horrible ... every April/May I wait for the letter back from TrialNet (you don't want the call - that means positive) ... I'm really hoping Max escapes his brother's fate ... I've had T1 for 25 years now and the worst part of my diabetes is the fact that my eldest Nicholas got it ... he was diagnosed in 2006. I don't know how families that have more then 2 members w/T1 do it .... I had to leave work to help manage Nicholas' diabetes .... it affects your life on all levels imaginable.

Hi Charis,
Thank you so much for responding...Today is the first day I actually had a chance to sit down and browse this site. It is awesome so far. I only have one child. Olivia age 9, going on 20....lol her b-day is May 30th...can't believe she will be 10 soon. This new diagnosis threw us for a loop....I am a nurse and even I didn't see this coming. The symptoms were so vague.
She did present in DKA however....Anyhow, how are you adjusting with 2 having D? I bet it actually is a little easier so that they have eachother to lean on etc...
I will definately give Olivia your dtr's email addy. Mine is babynurse10@hotmail.com and Olivia's is Olivia2001@computermail.net
Thanks so much for sharing and have a great evening...Please keep in touch...
Pam and Olivia...

Interesting that it wasn't as big of an adjustment for Lilly.  When Eva was diagnosed, she just took it in stride since it had already happened to Erin.  She would ask us when she was going to get shots before her onset.  She thought it was just part of getting older.  Neither of my girls really remembers the non-D years.

At 9:42am on December 15, 2010, D. Bahr said…

I think your daughters are the same age as my younger daughter, Eva (7).  Erin is 9 going on 40.  Our family has it a bit "easier" if you can call it that, since we don't have any non-D siblings to take into consideration.  With both of them having T1, our family can embrace changes a little more easily.  The disease is a little different in each.  We caught Eva's onset much earlier so she isn't as insulin-resistant as Erin.  Erin was in DKA when she was diagnosed and it took a long time to stabilize her.

Wecome to Tu!  When I first joined here, there definitely weren't that many parents with more than 1 T1 kid!
