Leaving The Hospital on Wednesday. We thank the Rady Children’s staff who were so great to us.
Like Father. Like Son. In This together!
We are so grateful we were able to go home on Wednesday evening. We are home and adjusting to a new normal. I am so proud of Elijah. He literally has not complained one time about taking four shots a day and getting his finger pricked at least 4 and sometimes more each day.
He even played basketball on Thursday night for the tryouts on a competitive basketball team he plays for. He did a great job and is making progress. The doctors gave him permission and we want him to get back to being as normal as possible. The last thing we ever want is for him to feel he can’t do certain things.
His blood sugar dropped very low around midnight last night and we were up late checking his blood sugar levels multiple times and getting him to take certain things to raise his levels. He vomited and became very pale. Of course, we panicked, called the doctor, and did everything else we knew to do. Thankfully, it all evened out. We know it’s going to take time finding a healthy balance and what he needs to keep everything at a healthy level.
Thank you again for everyone who has prayed and encouraged us. We are grateful for each of you.
We know God is going to use this to build something great in and through Elijah. God is teaching us a lot through it all.
We see His hand in so much that we’ve had to walk through already and we are so grateful for His love and grace each day!
Living In His Grace,
Kevin & Susan
