    Cell phone was located under the Firehawk roller coaster... They are mailing/shipping it back to us. I put the shipping cost on my credit card. I guess we'll see if the phone works when it arrives...

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Over the weekend, Harley fine-tuned the fancy new trick he'd been working on for three days... My five month old puppy is way ahead of the learning curve if I do say so myself...

Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser and Prayers Needed for a Wonderful Family...

Saturday, May 15, 2010

This morning our local hospital had a fundraiser in conjunction with a blood screening. It benefited the family of a man that I work with so we trekked over to partake of the pancakes and sausages and make our contribution. The gentleman that I work with is a truly good-hearted person, and even in the face of adversity, he keeps soldiering on. The heart-breaking and struggle that the family currently faces involves their baby... An eighteen month old little girl. She was diagnosed about 2.5 months ago with a brain tumor. To say it was shocking would be an understatement. I can only pray that they make it through this medical struggle and that God continues to watch over the family and bring them peace through the trials they face... Financial, medical, and otherwise. I know they would appreciate any and all prayers, and I know my SparkFriends are some of the best at offering their heartfelt prayers.

    I will pray for this young child and her family for God to shine his grace on them to get them through this trying time in their lives. The power of prayer is amazing. My own family went through a stressful time ten years ago when my two year old nephew was diagnosed with a.l.l. leukemia and had his first dose of chemo on his 2nd birthday. Fortunately God showered his Grace upon my sisters' young son, and after two years of chemo,radiation and multiple admissions from being neutopenic (which placed his young his life in jepody if he even caught a common cold) he was finally in remission. Two more years later, having stayed in remission without a relapse the doctors' stated he was fortunate to be cured!!(Praise God !!)My nephew was fortunate to have many people (many unknown to us -to this day ) praying for my nephew through a prayer chain at churches through-out the U.S. Of all the children in his control group at Dana-Farber in Boston- Only one other child besides my nephew survived.... Today he is 13 years old in excellent health.. so there is hope in faith and prayer !! so folks please join in prayer for this child.

VERY SCARY NIGHT!

Friday, March 19, 2010

So I went to dinner with dear Momma at Bob Evans. I had a meal that I've vetted and had in the past. It's within my carb-restricted diet guidelines. I ate 95% of the meal, and then I dropped Momma off at home. Momma thought I was acting weird, but I insisted that nothing was wrong. I didn't think that anything was... That maybe should have been my first sign. I told Momma I was going home, but I had to stop at Giant Eagle to grab a few things on the way. I got about three aisles through the store, and I felt VERY out of sorts. It felt like my whole body was flying apart again. I felt like I needed to go to the bathroom, my mouth felt like a metal can inside, my heart was beating out of my chest, and I couldn't get my brain to get my feet to move. I was shaking. I checked my sugar. THANK GOD I had my whole purse in the buggy. It was 44. I pushed the buggy to a point in the store while hitting dial and waited as I shuffled until I saw that it finally connected... This store is cell hell... It's a complete dead zone. Momma answered when it finally rang through. She said she and Ken were coming after me. I thought about just sitting down on the floor in the middle of the store. I didn't think I had enough strength to go any further, but I told her I was going to go to the checkout. I think the checkout girl thought I was a complete crackpot. I couldn't perform the simplest task with ease. I was awkward handing over my Giant Eagle card and trying to use the debit machine to pay. Finally, I was on my way out and headed to the car. Momma called again to say they were almost there and see how I was doing. I told her I was going to crawl into the car. Momma and Ken arrived just moments after I got myself inside. They both checked me over and insisted that I was cold and clammy to touch. We already know the hospital is just going to pump me full of sugar so we took care of that ourselves. Approximately 40 minutes later, my head was throbbing, but my sugar was 120. I had (TOTALLY VIOLATING THE DOCTOR'S ORDERS) allowed myself 12 oz. of my favorite Tropicana Homestyle OJ. I am going to monitor it over the next few hours and go to bed... Feeling like crud, but glad to be ALIVE and not in a coma!

THANKS TO MOMMA AND KEN!!!

    yowzias..i know that feeling for sure and people tell you take care of it but it's upon you before you know what is happening because the brain is trying to care for you and it doesn't have what it needs and it is just trying to survive at that point and screaming at you as the systems shut down..most of mine are bad enough that it takes several days of just hanging out to get back in the gist of things again..me i would have sat down in the floor for sure not caring about what people thought and i did just that last week and was totally shocked that it fell out (usually that happens at night when i'm sleeping) so hang in there and get thee to a doc (as i know your mom will make sure of that!!) hugs the lady mary

    I was hypoglycemic and the problem was that my doctor had no clue that restricting my carbs was what was causing the imbalance. Too much protein can cause that. I don't know what's available in the PA area, but I'll be happy to call my cousin's and find a good prediabetic doctor for you to look into seeing. MOST doctors don't know jack about hypoglycemia. A GOOD whole foods specialist or a nutrionist will be able to tell you how to balance that for you. If you BL is that low, keep your glucose pills or some OJ near by. 12oz of OJ was probably more than you needed if it shot you up that high. I'll see if I can find the information the doctor gave me and I'll send it on.

In the mean time, my prayers are with you. BE CAREFUL! and just to ditto what everyone else said, if you are in a store shopping when that happens again, LET SOMEONE KNOW!!! In CA, most major shopping areas have people who are first responder trained and can help you immediately while you are waiting for help to arrive.

    he worse part of lows for me is that I am already into a full blow one before I actually realize it.

I agree with what has already been said. Next time please just tell the cashier that you are diabetic and going into distress. Most people would be more than willing to get you a chair while you wait for your mother & Ken.

Take care of yourself. You deserve it!

MOMMA_BEAR_69 3/20/2010 10:52PM

    Chelle, You know that Ken and I are here for you ALWAYS!!! I just wish the doctors were more on the ball when it comes to hypoglycemia. One would think that a endocrinologist should know how to deal with that and work better with you. For them to tell you not to eat anything for two hours not matter what your blood sugars are is ridiculous!!!! It is entirely possible to go into a coma, convulsions, wreck your car, or die from such very low blood sugars. You remember during that crazy test how you felt when your sugars were 43...you didn't know who your were, where you were or anything and you were in the doctor's office. Be sure to keep those glucose tabs with you 100% of the time. Orange juice won't hurt you but that just shoots your sugar up to come down again. Be careful!!!
Know that I love you always and am here for you, dear child of my mine.
Blessings, love and hugs,
Mom

Wish I could help you find a better doctor...maybe ask J who she goes to...or anyone you know who is diabetic. Just for a idea of another doctor unless you want to go down town Pittsburgh to the endo group there.

    Thank goodness you were ok. I carry glucose tablets in my purse just in case when I am out shopping. They are easy to pop in my mouth and seem to work really fast. Perhaps you are restricting your carbs too much. Are you an insulin user? Perhaps your insulin needs adjusted. Be careful out there! emoticon

NELLIEC 3/19/2010 11:32PM

    Well, I think that if your sugar got that low, perhaps your carbs are too restricted! And you can hardly be violating doctor's orders if you were saving your life!!! Tell the doctor what happened, and if he throws a hissy fit, get another doctor who has more sense!

    God was watching over you and gave you the cell service you needed to call. But you should have just told some one at checkout what was going on and just sit in the store. You could have passed out as you were walking to your car and no one would have known what was wrong. Please next time just stay put and ask for help where ever you are at.

God Bless

I Cheated!!!

Monday, March 08, 2010

So Sunday was a fellowship after church... We had a birthday and a baptism to celebrate. I was VERY good on Saturday at the birthday party we attended and actually came in under 30 g carbs for my meal, but Sunday I decided to give myself a little more room. I ended up eating:

1 chicken drumstick (skin, no breading)
1/4 cp. penne with spaghetti sauce
1 small wheat dinner roll
1 cp. salad with light catalina
1/4 piece of center piece of white birthday cake (so no icing on sides just on top... two bites worth of cake... HONESTLY!)

The meal came in at 41 g carbs. So I was definitely over 30, but I think I could have done worse.

I was right back on the wagon today. I guess we'll forge ahead for the week and see what happens... I am STILL waiting on the results of my thyroid test.
