MIA

Hi everyone! I may be away from here for a few days or so. I am up to the hospital with my son, as we just found out he has Type 1 Diabetes. He is doing well, and they are getting his insulin regulated. I imagine there will be a lot of changes around the house for a while.

Catch up with you all soon.

Hugs,

Rose Ann

Bless your son! It can be managed well I pray!
Take care sweetie, Deb

Hugs to you Rose Ann and as well for your son. My niece who is now 19 has lived with diabetes since she was 4... it can be tough, but it is manageable.

Amy said...

I've never commented before but my dd was diagnosed with diabetes at age 5. She's 8 now. It's amazingly overwhelming at first but it will get better. We did shots about 6 months and then she got an insulin pump. Life was much better after that. You are welcome to email me if there's anything I can do to help!

Oh Rose Ann, I'm so sorry about your little one, but I'm glad to read from the comments above that it is not the end of the world. I'm sending good thoughts your way.

Hi Rose Ann, Well wishes to your son. It's an adjustment for everyone but can be managed. My dad had diabetes. Hopefully he'll be home soon. Dottie

Hugs Rose Ann! I agree with those who have said that the most difficult time is the beginning. Our nephew was diagnosed with diabetes when he was 3 and my SIL speaks openly about her experience. I just wanted you to know I am thinking of you.

Melissa said...

Oh dear! Hugs and prayers to you my friend!

Many Blessings,
M.

Oh, Rose Ann. Sending you prayers and hugs. These are the hard moments of life, but you'll figure it out and manage it well, of that I am sure. I'm thinking of you and your beloved little boy, my sweet friend. (((Rose Ann)))

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, Rose Ann! You sound so cool and in control, and you have to be, of course, but I know this must be a very difficult and trying time for you and your son. I have a friend who just went through this with her son. It was scary at first, but it has become routine now. I don't think a mother ever quits worrying about her children. I'm sending you the biggest hugs. I'm so sorry for your worry and distress. Take care, please.

I can completely relate. My daughter was dianosed 5 years ago, just days after her 12 birthday and days before entering middle school. It was quite an adjustment. Hang in there!

Susie said...

Oh Rose! Sending you and your family a big cyber hug. Anything like this can be scary.

Dawn Easton said...

Oh goodness, glad they figured out what was wrong and hope they get him all figured out soon! I'll be thinking of you all!!!

Hi Rose Ann, I know your little guy will be fine. How scary it must be for all of you though. Keep us posted, please. I love the cards the children made, and your train made of the dp! In my thoughts and prayers!

Sending hugs and good thoughts to you and your son. I know things probably seem overwhelming- so much new information and lifestyle changes for you son, but it is doable and they are advancing treatment everyday.

Oh Rose Ann!!! I'm so sorry!!! It's crazy how many people have that now. My brother in law got adult onset and is now on the pump. If there's anything I can do please let me know!!!

Juliana said...

I am just now catching up with my google reader....
...I will add ds (and you) to my prayer list. I am sure you will have a season of adjustment ahead of you.

(((Hugs)))

Joan Ervin said...

OMG, Rose Ann...I am so sorry to hear about your DS's diagnosis. He will have a new and different adventure ahead of him but with you and your wonderful family to support him, the road will be much easier!!! Many prayers will be sent your way...

eggette said...

RoseAnn, just came across your blog and I have to tell you that I know exactly what you're going through. Our daughter was diagnosed at age 4 1/2 and now she is married with two children, wears an insulin pump, for better control and has always done wonderfully!! If you have any questions about anything, please do not hesitate to email me and I will try to answer them!! {{Hugs}}

Julie Masse said...

OH my goodness - I'm just catching up tonight . . . hope things are improving and you all are adjusting well!! We'll keep him in our prayers for sure!!

Nancy ~ Inkcicles said...

That's some news and a lot to take in for you all. Your family will be in my prayers tonight.

Hugs,

Rose Ann I am so sorry I'm wayyy behind on my blogging (AGAIN!) and just read this - great big hugs to you and Lance! It must be a little scary for all of you, but it sounds like you are being smart and doing what you need to do. I wish you all, all the best!!

shel9999 said...

Oh my gosh, Rose Ann. It's been far too long since I've had a chance to catch up on blogs. Big hugs to you and your son! I'm so glad the doctors know what is wrong so that now he can get the proper treatment. I can only imagine how hard this has been. Big, big hugs (again)!
