Pray for my daughter
« on: July 31, 2006, 04:24:23 PM »

Hi Everyone,

I just got word from my wife who took my daughter to the doctor to have her blood sugar tested.  The meter would not register, because her level was so high.  They just said it was over 600.  My wife is now taking her to her pediatrician.  Please be in prayer for Anna, she is only 5 yrs old, and I do not think she fully understands what is going on. 

They did not say she is diabetic, but she has been drinking over a half a gallon of milk per day.  Always being thirsty is a sign of diabetes. 

Your Brother in Christ,
Brian

Brian,

Your family will be in my prayers. Brother, it is far more difficult to see our children and loved ones go through these things than to experience them ourselves, kids are very resiliant though.

You may be aware that Craig is going through this exact same thing with his (edited) son.

His Peace to you and yours,

Joe

Brian,

Your family will be in my prayers. Brother, it is far more difficult to see our children and loved ones go through these things than to experience them ourselves, kids are very resiliant though.

You may be aware that Craig is going through this exact same thing with his 10 year old son.

His Peace to you and yours,

Joe   

15yr old ;)

This will be hard for you all, we need to be praying for God to strengthen you through this.

Craig,

My apology to your son, he would likely want to give me a boot for that slip,

Thank you everyone.  Anna has an appointment first thing in the morning with an Endocrinologist.  We'll have to wait and see how it goes.

Hey Bobby,

Here I am still waiting for word about Anna.  She is still with the Endocrinologist.  I will certainly keep you all informed.

We lift up our eyes to You O lord, our Refuge and Strength. Trusting in Your promises we know that you are Faithful, You will give this family  the strength they need and the help that is necessary.

Today let Your mercies overwhelm our worries. Give us a humble dependence on your gracious will and grant us the grace to understand this illness. Purify or faith during these days so we can gain a keener sense of values and deeper appreciation of the blessings that surround us.

Beloved

Thank you for thinking of us.  We finally got her sugar levels down, and she's back to her normal self.  I gave her a shot last night for the first time.  She doesn't even flinch.  What a trooper she is.  I was talking to Vicky about the extra cost for special foods, and she said, 'God will provide.  It's not like we're asking for a boat.'  I had to laugh, but then I realized that she was exhibiting a faith that I was not showing at that time.  God sure knows how to teach. 

Love to All and Thanks,
Brian

Thank you Bobby.  You always know what to say.   :)

Anna's blood sugar was down to 192 today.  She was so happy because she was going to a pool party, and of course, because she didn't have to have a shot.  Thanx to all.
