Lots of new accessories to play with and a visit from Mimi and Grandpa!
In other news, we had a pretty life-changing weekend. My hubby ended up in the ER after his annual exam Friday morning because his blood sugar was over 400. He had been having symptoms that included increased thirst, hunger and urination, feeling sluggish, slight vision changes etc developing over the past month or two so we knew something was going and he scheduled his annual exam.
After a visit to ER and 2 nights in the hospital, he was officially diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. While this type is often diagnosed in children and teens, it’s becoming more common to be diagnosed around his age (33). After we visit an endocrinologist, i’ll be writing a whole post about this next week, but for now we’re working through this big life change and adjusting to our new normal! I may be a Registered Dietitian but that does not make me an automatic diabetes expert, so we’re learning together!
Thanks for all your support.
