Anxious wait?

Since I last posted I have had a couple of conversations with a Dr at the Diabetes Centre. It seems that F's diabetes might be able to be treated with oral drugs instead of a life of needles.
I have done heaps of research about the KCJ11 mutation that she has. I'm so glad for my studies, both have been very handy for this research.
Now we have wait to do the transition. The Dr's only wanted discuss options in December but I wanted to make a move earlier. Now that they have agreed I got nervous.
So we covet your prayers as we wait and then that the transition goes well and works.

Different direction

Well, life has taken a little bit of a different direction since I first posted here. My youngest DD was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes 2 days before 9 m.o. So lots of updates here will reflect our life with diabetes.

Today, her diagnosis was changed slightly. I had pushed for some genetic testing because of her early onset of symptoms. I was given the results today. She most likely has a form of Permanent Neonatal Diabetes Mellitus. I am trying to get my head around this information, even though I suspected it.

I now feel like I need to find out ALL about this type of diabetes right now!
