Tomas' endocrinologist started the fasting test at 2pm. His sugars are being tested every hour. So far: 94-83-71-64. When he hits 60 the lab is called up to verify and when he hits 50 tons of tests are done, rescue sugar is administered and then we are done, and just have to wait for the results. The doctor authorized fasting up to 15 hours if needed, but it looks like he may hit 50 soon. It will be nice to get this over with, he has been lethargic and sleepy for the last 2 hours. Update: While I was typing another draw - 54!! We're almost done!
He has an IV in his arm, and they started another one in his other arm but it didn't take so he now has a third in his ankle. One is for rescue meds and the other it for drawing labs. Unfortunately neither one is drawing back blood. Stuff can go in, but not out. So he is still being stuck for the lab draws, not to mention the glucose tests.

I read this a few days ago in one of my kid's school books as I was preparing for the new school year (set to start Monday!!). God is so good, I read it, liked it and tucked it away, not knowing I would need it just a few days later.
2 Corinthians 12: "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness." I will rather boast most gladly of my weaknesses, in order that the power of Christ may dwell with me. Therefore, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and constraints, for the sake of Christ; for when I am weak, then I am strong.  


  1. God has blessed you, blessed you with a strength that is unbelievable. You may not be able to see it in yourself, but I can!

    Kisses to Tomas!! Prayers, always!

  2. Praying tonight for you all!
    We start Monday, too!


  3. Praying for a strong mama to soothe her poor little guy as you both endure this hospital stay.
