On Wednesday Connor will be following up with his TrialNet results and going in for a glucose tolerant test in London.
Funny side note: Kylie asked us when we (myself, my husband and Connor) will be going to England? LOL...we are going to London Ontario NOT London England...funny kid!!
Anyways, since Connor has been tested and confirmed positive for 1 out of the 4 diabetes related autoantibodies it is time to follow up with a glucose tolerant test. He is a little nervous about the needle and I'm a little nervous about the results. There has been no other signs from Connor of T1 but man I hate this waiting game, this never knowing WHEN or IF it will strike one of your other children...it's exhausting. If any of my other kids are going to develop T1 in 1, 3 or 15 years from now...I just want to know NOW...ugh, lets get this shit over with!
Connor has been on a 150g (or more) Carb diet since Sunday, he has until Tuesday night to eat 150 carbs or more and then he is fasting until the testing is done on Wednesday. This carb counting has got me thinking about all of you out there with 2 or more children with T1 and all I can say is
YOU ROCK SUPER STARS!
I'm not even administering insulin or fighting with D, I'm just simply counting carbs and of course logging...I hate logging (I'm not even sure if they need me to log but I'm logging) and this shit SUCKS!
