My Week of Life


This has been a long week for me. My son, Joey(15) was admitted Sunday evening to the hospital. They put him in ICU. He is a type 1 diabetic and went into DKA. He had been sick, with a bug for about 18 hrs. I tried keeping fluids in him and giving him his insulin. But, it did not help. He got dehydrated and was about an hour away from going into a coma. We could not take him to Vanderbilt, due to all the flooding in Tennessee. He was in the ICU until yesterday afternoon. Praise God he is better! This picture was taken on his second day. He looked so much better than when they admitted him.

So, I have not been shopping or looking at any deals this week. I will try to get back to normal on Monday. I have a ton of cleaning to do...:)
