More sickness

Just a quick update.  We have more sickness here.

Isaiah threw up in the night.  He says he feels fine. 

Joshua has diarrhea which began this morning.  His blood sugars are high which is typical (so far) in the morning.  He has no ketones (not dehydrated).  His stomach hurts.  I'm trying to get him  to eat some toast and drink pedialyte. 

Thank you for praying for him.  I'll update as I can.  We are hoping and praying that this passes quickly and that nobody else gets sick.

UPDATE:  Sunday afternoon - Joshua is feeling better and has been able to eat.  This is an odd bug he has, but thankfully isn't lasting too long.  Thank you for your hugs and prayers.  We are hoping this is the end of the sickies for awhile here!




  1. it must be so hard trying to figure out diabetes and facing sickness at the same time.

    You are always in our prayers.

  2. Just caught up with your new journey.

    Oh Boy!

    Sending you lots of love.

    Love Leanne

  3. We're keeping you in our prayers. I have a local friend from our church who has a 9 year old son with Type I diabetes, and I sent her a link to your blog. Her name is Robin S if she happens to contact you. He's had it for a couple of years now. Blessings & prayers!



  4. Hi, I am not sure how I found your blog--I think I was googleing the activity bags...

    Regarding stomach flu, one word: Probiotics. We have tested this out as a family. Kefir will keep the healthy people well. Probably any good probiotic with lots of healthy bacteria will do... We like Kefir... Use it for 5-7 days.

    God bless,


  5. Thank you friends for your hugs, prayers and understanding.

    Lisa - thank you for the info on Kefir. We have not tried that and I'll have to look into it. We did get some probiotics to use this time. I appreciate the suggestion!!




I love hearing from friends!!! Thank you for taking time to leave a comment!
