Lilly Update

Good Morning this is Jenny, with an update from Elise...
After being air-lifted to Scottish Rite Hospital Lilly was admitted into ICU with a blood sugar level of over 900. Cory and Elise were informed that Lilly's case of type 1 Diabetes is severe, through the night they were able to administer insulin intravenously, and as of 10:30 this morning Lilly's blood sugar is at 143. This is reason to praise, Lilly is regaining her coloring and Elise said her cheeks were getting their rosy glow back. Lilly will remain in ICU until all of her levels are stabilized, then be transferred to a regular room...
** Note from me, I would really like to be able to bless the family with special love, my mind is swirling with ideas, would anyone be interested in making a care package for them. I am thinking of small handmade items, children's diabetic books, and cookbooks, etc. we can send their way. If you have any ideas or would like to help email me at jennygilley (at) hotmail (dot) com
You can also reach me at my blog. I will posting ideas and details as they come to me.

I just read your blog (Jen) and came over to let them know I am keeping Lilly in my heart and prayers. What a scary time in her young life. Thank goodness they got the blood sugar levels back down.♥

I can understand the familys pain and being scared. My Fiance has Type 1 Diabeties. Recently they have gotten pretty scarey.. he has had several seizers on me and its horrible because there's no response! I hope someday there will be a cure for this! Keep them in my prayers
