Mattisin’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one.

My Story is the introduction to our CaringBridge site.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

My sweet Mattie was diagnosed w/Type 1 Diabetes in July of 2004. Mattie has always been calm and content chillin by herself or shopping w/mommy.. She visited her dad that summer in Las Vegas and he told me that she was going to the bathroom a lot. I picked Mattie up 1am and when we got home between 1-6 am she had gone to the bathroom 23 times and got no sleep. She ate 4 bowls of cereal and still was hungry her eyes were saggy and she was very lathargic. I took her to Wee Care and they had us do some blood tests. A couple hours later they told me I had 1 hour to get her to Primary Childrend Hospital.

When we got there they already had a room for her, they rushed us up there and started putting IV's in Mattie, I had no idea what, who,when,why. I grabbed the nurse and asked her why she said Mattie had Type 1 diabetes, and I told the nurse to give her a pill and the nurse laughed and cried w/me.

That is when I said " My daughter has what?" My family and I stayed with her for a week and had a bunch of training on food and shots.

A year after that Mattie was diagnosed w/epilepsy and we still have not yet figured out why she is have these seizures. She is currently taking medication to control them.
