This makes me sad. DD#4 F has diabetes and that means testing her BGL at least 4 times every day. That makes me sad enough.
She is 20 months old and not really talking. She has a few words that she says sometimes. Mama, Dada, Nana (Banana, not her Nana) and Ella (a family friend). Last night she said "inger". Now the only reason I know it was susposed to mean something is that she had just crawled up into her highchair, put on the table and then stuck out her pointer finger and said "inger" because she knows she has to get tested before she gets her dinner.
Now I am making myself cry. I know we have it a lot better than others with diabetes because it is Neonatal diabetes rather than Type 1 and she has responded to oral medication and some mutations don't but I really didn't want one of my little girls first words to be about testing her BGL.
Another friend whose little boy has diabetes too posted about him being able to say "test" and now DD#4 is nearly able to do the same.
