I normally try to keep my blog free of too much personal "junk." But I would like to share a "Praise The Lord!" With all of you. My mom was diagnosed a type 2 diabetic in January 2015. We've been working with a couple doctors to get her high blood sugar under control. We found an awesome doctor (who "happens" to be the dad of my good friend who I met on a modest fashion website). He put her on a new medication to see if that would help her blood sugars come down. It worked awesome for about 3 days. Then she started having back pain, really bad, a sore throat, etc. It escalated to where she vomited and was walking around like she was drunk! The doctor asked us to come in so he could check her out. During our visit he sent us to the ER, turns out it wasn't the medication causing the problems. She was experiencing something called ketoacidosis, which if you're interested you can Google it, as it's hard to explain. Basically it's the next step before you go into diabetic acoma! Her blood sugar was very high (512!) and she has a virus. It was brought on by a combination of things; the virus, she was feeling nauseous so she stopped eating, drinking and taking her meds.
She was on an IV with insulin for two days. She's home now and I'm so grateful!
My point in sharing all this, is that God is a merciful father. I'm so grateful for wise doctors, even for the insulin she has to be on now. Because she's alive. I know she wouldn't be alive today if God hadn't orchestrated everything perfectly to get her to the ER in time. Thank you Jesus for my mama, thank you for doctors, for insulin, but most of all for your mercies.
I can tell you right now, it's easy to say "Trust God," when you're not in a situation when that's all you can do. You can believe and have faith that He will take care of you, no matter what.
