I am new to this forum and not even sure how to use everything correctly yet, but wanted to introduce myself. My name is Monica, I am a caregiver to my 4 yr old son John, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 23 months. We've just passed our 2 yr anniversary with diabetes and it's taken that long for it to become a "normal" part of our life. I still stress about it, but not like I did when it was new. He's currently still on injections of Lantus and Humalog. I want to get him the new smaller Omnipod but it's still waiting on FDA approval, last I heard. We have an awesome medical team of a pediatric endocrinologist & her nurse, also a fantastic pediatrician who does family practice the old fashioned way, so she's actually also my doctor as well as my other kids' too. We live in northeast PA and I'm always looking for other families to connect with.
