My 3 year old son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on the 3rd of this month. My husband and I were totally unaware of this running in our families so we had no idea what to look for. We thought our son had a stomach bug .. as a result he went into Diabetic Ketoacidosis and almost died. He was in the PICU for 2 days and on the regular floor for four days. I stayed with him the whole time. I felt and still feel like this is totally overwhelming. He is not adjusting well to it. I am here hoping I can meet some new people that can relate to my situation and maybe offer some advice/support.
