My son was diagnosed on August 23, 2010 with Type 1 Diabetes. He was 6 years old and my daughter was 8. I was 42–now I am 102! Well, I feel like that some days! Type 1 Diabetes must be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. No time off for good behavior! This blog will let you take a trip with us on the Type 1 Diabetes Train!
