INTRODUCTION – Attention-getter: On the morning of February 3rd, 2010 I woke up not feeling well, my mother made me a doctor’s appointment with my family doctor. I arrived at my family doctor and she called my name to come back into the room where she would see what was wrong, she told me I had a sinus infection and prescribed an antibiotic for me to begin taking. Later that day I began to feel worse, I started vomiting, could not eat anything only wanting something to drink. About this time, I was urinating about every 15-20 minutes. As the day went on I felt worse and worse, about 11pm that night my dad tried to get me to eat some oatmeal before going to sleep and I refused, I only wanted a drink. By 11:30pm I began urinating every 3-5 mins and my mother didn’t believe me, so she wanted me to pee in a cup which she gave me a red solo cup I was overflowing every 3-5mins. By 12am on Feb. 4th I am now at Northern Hospital in Mount Airy with IV’s and doctors running every test they could think of. Approximately 30 minutes passed and the doctor came in the room an asked if I had ever had any problems with my blood sugars my parents replied “no, not that we know of” the doctor then began to continue by saying we already have an ambulance in route from Brenner’s, our blood sugar meter only runs to 900 and hers is way over that. It didn’t feel like 10 minutes had passed an I was in the back of the ambulance headed down 52 to Brenner’s Children’s Hospital. When I arrived, they had a room in ICU ready for me, my blood sugar was 1100 when I arrived. They told my parents I was comatose and had a good chance of having brain damage when I awoke. I spent 4 days in ICU, 3 days in a regular room. On Feb. 10th I was released from the hospital and came home on 8 insulin shots a day. Then 6 months later I received my 1st insulin pump.
