But my son did not get one. He meant to but something constantly came up causing him to not get around to it.
So now I'm worried. Type 1 Diabetics are immune-compromised so they can easily catch whatever virus they happen to be near.
They also become much sicker than someone without this problem.
I am in contact with many parents of type 1 diabetics. I have seen pictures of far too many T1D s in hospital beds from DKA after they contracted the flu this season. So far Devin has avoided being in the hospital other than the Emergency Departments for relatively minor childhood accidents.
He started having symptoms of the flu today. Time will tell.
