100 Days Project

Sarah: Our New Normal

My two-year-old has just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. It's made a massive impact on our lives, but already, things which just a few weeks ago would have seemed extraordinary are becoming ordinary. Our new normal. For 100 days I'm going to take a photo of life with a diabetic toddler.

Day 5:

Blood sugar reading

We have to check the blood sugar levels before we go to bed so we know if he's likely to go low overnight. 6.7 is a bit lower than usual so we'll need to check again in a couple of hours. There's a lot of broken sleep for parents of a type 1 toddler.
