Family Emergency

I just wanted to let you know that there might be a delay in new postings this week. We are in the hospital with my five year old daughter, Ashley, who has just been diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. We are getting her blood sugar under control and stabilized and hope to be out soon! We caught it early before any damage was done so we are staying hopeful to manage it quickly.
Check back later this week for some new projects! If you have purchased projects and have any problems or questions I will try to get back to you as soon as possible, please bear with the delay!
If anyone has gone through this diagnosis with a small child any advice is more then welcome! All of the necessary insulin shots and finger pricks are pretty tough. Thanks!

My step-daughter was 6 years old when she was diagnosed. Please feel free to e-mail me to chat. Saying prayers for you and your family. It's hard at that age, but manageable.

Sending good thoughts your direction.

I am confident you will take a bit of your AWESOME creativity and use it to come up with solutions to handle the problems or issues that crop up due to your daughter's health problem.

We will still be here waiting when you have time to create with paper again.

Hugs to your entire family

I just read your post. I pray you and your daughter find the very best support and advice you need to adjust to your daughter's diabetes. Hang in there, you'll get the handle on finger sticks and insulin shots. I'll be praying for you guys and checking back to see how it's going.

My nephew was diagnosed with diabetes at about that same age - he is now in his 30's and looks healthy as a horse :-) There is so much more that can be done in treating diabetes now than there was even 25 years ago. Praying for you and your daughter.

It is hard finding out things like this! I know from experience. I was diagnosed two years ago. Our friend has a little boy at the age 0f 1 and they did alot of testing. He is now on a pump which they enter exactly what he eats and drinks and not as much poking! Thoughts and prayers with your family!

Lynn my daughter was diagnosed at age 7 (5 years ago) and I know what a big shock and adjustment it is. It is a lot to take in and a whole new routine to get used to, but believe me it does eventually get easier. DD is now on an insulin pump and loving it so you have that opportunity too. If you want to chat feel free to contact me and I wish you all the best as you adjust to this. Will be thinking of you.
