Hi! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I've been kind of busy. Today I would like to tell you about my trip to Alabama. Just this Sunday mom and I arrived in Huntsville Alabama to see my nana and papa. It was an especially long trip because we didn't get there by plane or jet,we got there by car. We had to go through lots of states like Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, Virginia, and Tennessee. And finally we got to Alabama. But driving to Alabama is such a long trip we needed to stop at a hotel in VA. Long story short never stay at Howard Jonson. Every time I checked my BG in the car it was always in the 300's and mom had to give me extra insilin. That's because when I am not active my BG rises. Well I have to go now,but check back soon for a new post about whats happening in Alabama. Bye!
a new arrival!
Thursday the 11th 2013 a very special event took place! My new baby cousin was just born! Her name is Layla, Layla Jeanne Keiser. Layla is home from the hospital. And in this picture is my first time seeing and holding her. Also in this picture is my other cousin Kelsie who just became a big sister. Kelsie also has T1D. And tomorrow I am speaking about diabetes at a golf tournament. Lots of professional golfers will be attending. Please check every Sunday for a new post.
Hi, my name is Kaelyn and I'm 9 years old. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on February 4, 2010. It all started when I was drinking and using the bathroom way too much. My mom took me to the pediatrician and the doctor gave me a urine test to check my glucose levels. A few days later the doctor called and told my mom to bring me to the hospital right away. There I found out that I had Type 1 Diabetes. That's how it all began. I stayed in the hospital until I could learn about how to take care of myself and my mommy had to give me 4 shots a day!!! I learned in 2 days how to check my own sugar by pricking my finger and testing my blood with a glucose meter. Since then, I have learned so much and have met so many other kids with T1D. Life with diabetes isn't always easy but I have learned to deal with this and that it will not stop me from doing anything I want!
My name is Kaelyn. I am 10. This is my story living with T1D.
