Brief update and prayer request.
It's been a fairly sorry weekend. Family issues. Medical issues. So not cool.
For the past couple of weeks, I've noticed a few irregularities in Superman -- he's been really thirsty and often gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. Friday night he got up three or four times and was extremely thirsty and had to go to the bathroom each time. We knew something wasn't right.
My mom, who has Type II diabetes, tested him first at 11 a.m. Saturday. His blood sugar was 247.
The normal is 80-120.
We tested it again at his grandmother's house around 3:30 p.m. Results? 309. Our friend Rebecca's father is a doctor, and thank God, he was able to help us. He insisted that we come over to his house and let him check it. At 6:30 p.m., it was 327.
Needless to say, the good doc set us up with some appointments tomorrow morning.
Please keep Superman in your prayers; he's been so stable and calm through this (I, on the other hand, have been totally neurotic -- lovely), and I'm just hoping that Saturday's results were either a fluke or this is something he can fix over time with diet and exercise.
I do have really fun news about our book, but I kinda want to save it for its own post, so I'll keep it for a post later this week. =)
