same time, same phone call… Cam’s back home and asked why this is happening again. He said, “why can’t we go back to 5 units of Lantus? It was fine then.”
I explained that his blood sugar going up tells us we need MORE insulin, not less. 5 was fine then, but not now. Honeymoon’s not quite over like we thought. He goes, “My pancreas is still working some?!? Somebody, call a medic, my pancreas needs help!” We laughed and I told him I wish more than anything that they already knew how to stop it from getting worse and just keep it here. He asked, “Have doctors found a cure for any other diseases yet?” It never occurred to me that a child wouldn’t realize that studying and curing diseases wasn’t something new. I told him that I believe that there will be a cure soon and that I think it’s likely to be while he’s still here and needing it. He agreed with a smile. Hope is huge.
