    We need your prayers.......UPDATE pg.5

    We just returned from a fun-filled holiday trip to Chicago and our oldest daughter has been drinking everything in sight today. I checked her finger and she was 289 - rechecked, 389, rechecked-394, I called the Endo and he said she should come to the ER today. Her blood ketones were negative (0.0) so we are holding off until we can open presents. Santa is going to come tonight, we told the kids. Today is also her 14th birthday. I'm so bummed and scared out of my mind right now. Just needed to vent.......

    Oh Cristy---I'm no expert but this is not good news. If it is d---good for catching it before ketones. Why is it that this happens during the holidays? Keep us up to date. I am thinking of you and your family.

    I am so sorry your family is facing this on Christmas (or any day for that matter). I will say prayers for you all.

    Praying for you, and hoping everything works out. *hugs* I have so much respect for the parents who help make things easier for their kids with D, and I'll be thinking of your family today.

    I'm so, so sorry. Life can be so unfair. It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job keeping her b-day and Christmas special for her.

    I'm sorry, I know this will weigh heavily on your mind. :(
    If I were in your shoes, I'd be doing the same thing. You know the warning signs, keep up with the ketone testing, keep her hydrated, and my heart goes out to you- hoping for a fluke. Prayers coming your way! :cwds:

    Oh my goodness. As I read your post I sighed and said "oh no". This is what we all fear and know is possible but pray it won't happen. I really and truly pray this is NOT D but we all know the signs...I pray it's just a fluke. I do believe in miracles and we sure could use a CHRISTMAS miracle....some positive news would be nice.

    I am so, so sorry. My thoughts are with you and your family. What terrible, awful timing...as if there's any good time for these kinds of worries, but Christmas Eve and birthday??? Truly heartbreaking. Let us know how things go.

    Just checked in the wish everyone a Merry Christmas and saw this! So sorry to hear of it and the timing of course is rotten. But you have to believe that YOU are a blessing to your daughter. You are on top of things and I know you will not let anything spiral into ketones! Let her have her Christmas Eve and birthday but just keep hydrating and checking every couple of hours. Maybe it is just a bug? Let's hope and pray that it is.

    God bless you and yours.

    Hopefully you caught it early so that she will not need to be hospitalized. Praying for you.

    What a sad thing to happen on her birthday and Christmas. I'm sure you will help her through it all. Hopefully she will not have to stay in the hospital.
