I just found out that Sydney, who will be 5 next week, has been diagnosed with juvenile diabetes.
She's okay, and thank GOD for mother's intuition, because that is the only thing that kept something really serious from happening. Jennifer really can't place her finger on what "told" her something was wrong, but she acted on her suspicions and they were proven true.
Sydney's Dad, is diabetic as well, so they used his glucometer to test her sugar on Sunday night, and it was off the scale. Off to the hospital they went. She's now on 4 insulin shots a day, regular blood sugar tests, and of course, a modified diet.
Please just say a prayer for them if you have a moment. I can't imagine how to explain something like this to a little girl who is so...well, so little. She's a sweetheart too, Landon's little "mommy" whenever we're out playing with the neighborhood crew.
Please remember Mommys and Daddys, that little nagging voice that's there in the back of your head...it's there for a reason.
Always follow your gut when it comes to your children.
That's my PSA for the day.
