Holy Moly, I have wonderful friends. Seriously, today was filled with dinner offers, phone calls, flowers, friends stopping by to see how we are, and e-mails galore.
I feel loved. And I feel like my little Enna bug is loved. Which makes my heart feel happy and full.
Last night was seriously emotional for us. And we came home feeling heart broken, and worried. The Doctors and Nurses in the ER made it seem like diabetes was her diagnosis, and that was the only answer.
This morning we took her to her regular doctor, and they did a finger prick to check her levels after a night of fasting.
And they were completely normal.
Then this afternoon they did another finger prick to check something else. (poor kid).
And they also were completely normal.
Which has all of us completely confused. Her pediatrician was very happy with these results, but also confused with the results because they are completely opposite from the results we got at the ER. They explained that there can always be errors in the tests, and something could have been in her system to make her blood sugar skyrocket so much Sunday. (And no, she wasn't eating sugar all morning...)
He said that she definitely needs to be watched closely. She needs to have her urine tested again on Monday and we will go from there.
We are feeling so much better about things today, and much less stressed. We are still worried and antsy to figure out exactly what is going on with her. We just want to know what we are dealing with so we can make sure she is healthy.
I can't express how thankful I am for the many friends we have who have helped us out today, and who care for our kiddos so much. It's very humbling. Thank you.
I will make sure to update again on Monday when we learn a little more. I'm really praying hard this week that this is just a fluke thing, and Monday will be a great day! And I'm cursing the Doctors who had us scared to death yesterday...
I know, I know they were just doing their job, but still, they had us FREAKED out.
Thanks again friends. Hugs to all.
