3 children with diabetes.
On Saturday, Amelia said to me, I am so thirsty all the time. I decided to check her sugars and she was up at 32.3. I rang the WCH and they advised me to get her straight to the hospital. We got her there just in time. They found glucose and ketones in her blood and that they were climbing. She was started on insulin and turned around almost immediately. If we had stayed home longer, she would have been more dehydrated and had higher ketones. Today she has moved onto the ward and we will get her insulin regime worked out before she comes home. I never thought we would have 3 children with it and I really hope none of our other children get it.
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
