I wanted to update everyone on how things have been in the past 2 months since we got Max, my son's diabetic alert dog. I felt confident that we would love our new dog, but had no idea that Max would be so invaluable after only a short time. Max sleeps right next to my 5 year old son and wakes me like clockwork to check Graham's sugar. Max woke me this morning at 2am by whining and acting unsettled. When I checked my son his sugar was 44mg/dl. After taking the measures to get my sons sugar back up to 150, I rewarded Max as I cried with relief at what had just happened. We all settled in and went back to sleep when Max started whining and acting unsettled again at 4:30am. I tried to get the dog to go back to sleep and not wake the kids but he was so persistant that again I checked my son. I felt confident that the sugar if anything would be a little high since I had corrected the low only 2 hours prior. Meter read blood sugar 48mg/dl, YEAH MAX!! For any parent out there that has a child that can't feel "lows" I urge you to look into a fur friend to help your child. The breeder and trainer we found in Warren Retrievers is second to none. The quality of the puppy they placed with us top notch. I still sleep lightly worring about Graham's sugar but relax some knowing that Max is right there with him.
