Type 1 Diabetes and Ian

This week's lesson: Type 1 Diabetes and Ian

Location: Spokane's Sacred Heart Hospital and home

This Tuesday found Ian at Sacred Heart's Emergency Room with a very high blood sugar level of 600. From there, he spent 2 days on the 7th floor, getting excellent treatment (and no sleep!) and learning how to deal with insulin injections and food choices. We were glad when he got to come home and we all had a good night's sleep!

I'm proud to say that he is adjusting well, even looking up recipes that look tempting to try. We're all eating healthier and I think it's going to be an even healthier lifestyle change for us.

Thanks for continuing to pray for him and for your support of our family!
