Zachary

A Zachary update.

Continue to keep Zachary in prayer. We think the source of his 'stomach flu' is really elevated ketones because of his diabetes. It's a catch 22, since he needs to get carbs and fluids in him in order to receive insulin which in turn reduces the ketones. Ketones we have learned can cause severe stomach pain and vomiting.

He has vomited again, and most likely will take him to the ER at the suggestion of the endocrinologist nurse. Of course, now that he has thrown up, he feels better, but he needs fluids to also prevent dehydration.

The nurse suggests we go, so off we go to Community. We don't need you to come, the best thing you can do is pray.

Thanks!
