Please pray for Lilly

My little girl just got taken by ambulance to the ER. She has lost a lot of weight lately and just Monday was throwing up a lot. Took her to the doctor Tuesday and they didn't address the weight loss{she weighs 30 pounds-so does Fisher, who isn't yet 2}, drinking and peeing a lot, just made her an appointment for this Friday for her 5 year well check as well as possibly running tests. She hasn't eaten since Monday and has gotten very lethargic and not super responsive in the past couple hours. Then she was leaning up against the wall to walk to the bathroom. The paramedics came and got her and Cory is riding with her to the hospital. I spoke with him a few minutes ago and so far her blood sugar is really high, diabetic high. This is somewhat what we were thinking since she's lost so much weight, and yet drinking tons of water and pottying a lot.
If y'all would just pray for Lilly, the doctors seeing her, and us we would appreciate it.

***Spoke with Cory, he said the paramedics pricked Lilly's finger and used a little test meter thing and her blood sugar was over 400. Also they got her oxygen levels up to 99%. They were in the mid nineties. I'll keep y'all posted.
***Update...Lilly's blood sugar is over 500. I am sure she will have/has type 1 diabetes. Read this article. Exactly like Lilly's symptoms. If her stupid pediatrician had tested her the other day when I brought it up, we would not be here right this very moment. A day earlier, but a day earlier would have been better.
***As of 9:40, Lilly is still lethargic, they are going to be giving her insulin and air-lifting her to Scottish Rite, a children's hospital.
***Just spoke with Cory, Lilly is at Scottish Rite in ICU. She will probably be there for 3 days to a week and a half. On the way, in the plane, her blood sugar spiked to as high as 700 or more{the chopper's meter topped out at 700}. The insulin should stabilize Lilly and she will be on insulin and given an iv{which she wasn't happy about}. So long as Lilly doesn't try to pull the iv out and doesn't freak out, she will be able to stay awake, otherwise, she may be given sedatives and a tube down her throat. I am praying that doesn't happen.
***It is now 11:33 and I just got off the phone with Cory. He said that the doctor said Lilly is going to be okay. The doctor says that she has Type 1 diabetes{which my Mom is NOT accepting, that Lilly was healed at the cross 2000 years ago} and we have a lot of learning and dealing. Lilly will be in the ICU for at least one more day and in the hospital up to 3 or so days. She will have to have insulin shots five times a day for a long time. A diet overhaul is coming. Lots of changes. Apparently, Lilly is one of the younger children to have Type 1, as it is more commonly found around puberty.

Praying and crying for your road ahead. I know as my mom is a Type I. Please call me if you need a shoulder to cry or lean on. I know you'll have to do the shots for a while till you get things down but hopefully they will let her switch to a pump soon. It has done wonders for my mom.

Wow Elise!
I will be praying for Lily. I can't believe her weight...Noelle weighs 26 pounds and she is 14 months! I think it's time to switch her doctor. That is crazy he didn't do tests on her!
I will be praying the same prayer as your mom...We rebuke this diabetic prognosis in Jesus name! We pray healing into every cell of Lily's body in Jesus name! Amen.
