Poor little Daniel has the worst of it now. He has been sick for several days now and today was a rough one for him. I'm hoping that tonight will be a turning point for him. He felt well enough to play a couple of games of Candyland with me - and beat me both times. He has been able to eat some, but not keeping much in. We are all ready for this bug to be gone!
Thankfully everyone else is feeling well. The other kids and I just did a lot of reading and some cleaning. We are reading a really good book right now. It's entitled The Mysterious Benedict Society. It's a mystery involving children and a plot to change the world. I love that it is engaging for my children from 7 to 16! I'm really enjoying it too!
Joshua walked in and said he feels funny - his head and his stomach. Wants his blood sugar checked. He is really good about asking for this when he isn't feeling well. He, unfortunately, has had too much practice between the sickness and the many lows.
I had told him that he would be fine as he just had a snack recently and a shot of insulin. I don't mind checking though whenever he feels it is needed (or wanted). This is a lot for him to learn. Being attentive to his body and the changes it is going through. He is doing such a good job of it all too.
His blood sugars are fine, but he wants me to go up with him. More tomorrow.
Thank you for your prayers.
