9:25pm update: The throwing up stopped long ago, but both sickies still have fevers and stomach pains. Grace’s blood sugar and ketones have both come down – praise the Lord! Praying that they’ll have a restful night and be completely healed by morning. Oh, and really really selfishly praying that no one else gets it – no sign of that yet.
10:30am update: Grace’s blood sugar has come down, but her ketones have gotten larger. Both she and Luke are still feeling really miserable. If G’s ketones continue to rise, we will have to abandon the pump and give shots with syringes – hoping to avoid that!
Having the stomach bug is no fun for anyone, and it gets a little more complicated when a Type 1 diabetic gets it. Sadly for us, both Luke and Grace woke up in the night throwing up.
Luke was low and had to keep some juice down long enough for his body to use the sugar to bring him back to the land of the living. He’s kind of teetering on the edge of low, so if you’d pray for his sugars to regulate, that would be great.
Gracie’s blood sugar was actually high (corrected via her pump), and she has no ketones for now, which is good.
They’re both resting for now. Will you pray with me for a quick recovery without complication?
And I’m praying, too, that this illness doesn’t make its rounds through the four of us who are left. 🙂
