Thanks for posting. It seems like you and your wife are keeping level-headed about this whole thing, which is great.

I'm a Type I (have been since age 9), and must reconfirm that your approach is absolutely correct. When they're so small, they can't tell you that they feel funny -- so preventing major lows is key. Soon -- though it may seem like ages away -- she'll be able to tell you how she's feeling and monitor herself more, not that it'll make it at all easier on you.

Please let me know if you have any questions about Type I. Age 9 seems so very long ago, but I remember handling my diabetes as a child and perhaps have some good tips. Perhaps. :)
