The question I’m asking myself is why am I worried. I know kate/we can handle it if she has gestational diabetes. We can also handle if Coconut is ever diagnosed with diabetes. The thing is I worry about it a lot more then I should. I mean everything I write on this website are truth and not cleaned up in any way to make things sound better then they actually are.
All i I know is living with diabetes, I know that I love it and I know that I can handle everything it throws at me. Out of range blood sugars in the middle of the nightor the run down feeling after a night of lower then average blood sugars. I know that I can handle all of it, I can tell my parents and Kate not to worry because I’m in control. They still worry and I can’t change that, they worry when I’m asleep or alone in Atlanta.
Again its life, Coconut will be dealing with stuff like that even if he doesn’t have diabetes. He will be fine, I’m just worried because all I know is life with diabetes. I don’t know how to care for someone with diabetes, I know how to motivate them and help them take control of their diabetes but not when it comes to a son or daughter. At the end of all of this all I can is that I have the best support group to help kate and I if Coconut has diabetes. The diabetes community is amazing and has the best caregivers ever. I know that I can always turn to them for help if we need it!!
In closing Coconut has been passing everything with flying colors so far and is a very healthy boy!! He will have a real name in a week, Coconut is a great name picked by Minnie and Sharky. Coconut will be his stage name!
