31...What a horrible number. I tend to hate any number under 70 or over 250. For all of you Type 1 mommies, you know what I'm talking about. Avery hit 31 tonight.. the lowest he's been since we found out he had diabetes. It was scary for so many reasons but the the worst thing about it was that it happened so fast! He was running around and playing and then literally no more then 20 seconds later he was on his hands and knees and then down on his belly. I looked over at him thinking he might just be playing. He looked up at me and gave me the saddest little face. I hurried and checked him and then his eyes started rolling back into his head. My dad scooped him up and ran him to the kitchen. He was coherent and was able to drink some juice. Within about a minute he was back to normal.
Some days you get a little too used to the schedule you have with a diabetic child and then something like this happens and its like that 1st week of their diagnoses is starting all over again. I take advantage of the good days. I shouldn't. But at the same time while i hate it when these scary moments happen, its nice when its over because I know we can get through it. Avery was OK, i was OK, everything ended up being OK. Hes had diabetes for 6 months now and its still very, very new. I'm pretty sure it will still be very new for a long, long time. So until the day comes (and we all know it will) when they find a cure, we'll take the good days and be grateful and the bad days and be grateful. As hard as diabetes can be on my little man and our family, i know that things could be worse. Today was a bad day.. but its so small compared to our good ones! I know things will get better. I know things will get easier. Diabetes is journey that I never thought we would be on, but we're here and we're in it for life! I know Avery can do it and I hope i can do it ;) Its amazing to see all these other kids, families and mommies going through the same thing. We can all get through the hard days!! Thank you for all the wonderful comments! I hope i can get to know each and every one of you..
