The beginning

Lots more learning and then we go home!

Last night was a much better night in the sleep department. Being detached from all things beeping and tangling, Luke could move around freely. I’m sure being utterly exhausted didn’t have anything to do with it. Today was another day of learning and visiting. We learned a bunch of math. We learned what is good… Continue reading Lots more learning and then we go home!

The beginning

It’s a new day…

June 14, 2015 I hadn’t mentioned it in any of my previous, but Luke wasn’t allowed to eat once he was diagnosed as T1. He basically hadn’t eaten anything since June 10th. It didn’t bother him until he was hydrated & insulated (ha ha… see what I did there?). Most of Saturday he was STARVING.… Continue reading It’s a new day…

Nighttime at the hospital isn’t fun.

June 13, 2015, Part 5 Do you know when everything has settled down and quiet, your mind sometimes doesn’t settle down and get quiet? Sometimes it goes into overdrive. It’s nearly impossible to get quality rest when your son is laying in a hospital bed next to you. Especially when, just 12 hours earlier, he… Continue reading Nighttime at the hospital isn’t fun.

The beginning

Admitted.

June 13, 2015, Part 4 They wheeled us right into our room and got Luke settled into his bed. The next hour or so was pure craziness. I had a nurse asking questions for her records.

The beginning

First ambulance ride.

June 13, 2015, Part 3 We waited quite awhile for the ambulance to arrive to transfer us. When they finally arrived, they had to strap Luke on the gurney to keep him from escaping, er, I mean rolling off. Only one of us could ride in the ambulance with him. Luke and I shared our… Continue reading First ambulance ride.

The beginning

Off to the emergency room.

June 13, 2015, Part 2 I immediately called Joel when we left the clinic and got in the car. He was getting ready to do some projects around the house and had left his phone in the house. I called him repeatedly and left text messages, but he wasn’t answering. I had to talk to… Continue reading Off to the emergency room.

The beginning

To the doctor we go.

June 13, 2015, Part 1 Luke woke up feeling worse than he ever has. His skin is gray. His cheeks sunken in. I have never been so worried about him in my life. I called and got him an appointment at 9:00 a.m. When it was time to leave, I had him take along a… Continue reading To the doctor we go.
