Well... today was going great, I was at my friends lake house and having tons of fun. Then it came time to come home. My phone was dead on the way home so I had no idea of the voicemail that awaited me when I arrived and set it to charge.

I listened to the voicemail and on it my sister Rebecca (Recovering alcoholic and drug abuser) was explaining that she needed someone to talk to and that she was buzzed. She then proceeded to explain why she was of her current state. My niece Chloe (11 years of age) was rushed to the hospital yesterday due to vomiting and passing out. Her father (very good father at that) when taking her to the hospital to see the pediatrician, found out first. The pediatrician sent them to the ER at a larger hospital and on his arrival at the larger hospital found out that his daughter (my niece) has type one diabetes. :cry:

Her blood sugar level was over 900. It is suppose to be around 100... "She was minutes away from death," the doctors said.

Apparently she is doing better and is starting to be able to eat... but her sugar level is still very high and she is still very weak. It is at around 500 now and she needs prayer that her sugar level will go back to normal and for her recovery. Chloe's life is already very difficult (with my Rebecca and her husband being divorced, Chloe having emotional problems and some more things that I do not wish to put forth at this time) and she doesn't need this. She's always been a fragile child...

I also found out that my girlfriends pet died after having it for 3 years and she's also distraught.

If you all could pray for Chloe and her recovery, Rebecca and her drinking/drug abuse problem and that she doesn't get back into it, and for me that I don't lose it tomorrow when I go to visit her, I would be much obliged.

Thank you everyone.

U have my thoughts and prayers. My first cousin's name is also Rebecca ( though she goes by her first name). She has struggled with drugs/drinking since she was 13. So I know what ur going through just know that everything happens for a reason and all things work out in the end. Please wish them the best of luck and know they are in my prayers.

You and your niece be in my prayers tonight. And I don't know if you would find comfort in the Bible, but if you want some good word to read when you're down, read Psalms. Especially the early chapters. They've gotten me through this first week of school.

Yeah, my sister has been going through it since she was 17 and had an abusive boyfriend that would choke her, knock her out, rape her and force her to do things she didn't want. (She is now 32 and still going through the drug problems and problems with boyfriends)

Thank you everyone.

Update on Chloe.

She is down to 150 now (from 999) blood sugar count and is feeling a little better. She can talk now but is still weak. She'll be discharged tomorrow.

I've been talking to my diabetic friends and they've never heard of numbers that high living. She's a miracle child... someone up there wants her to live.

The lord does things that doesn't seem fair, but remember it's all for a reason and the lord has a certain plan that we can't question. My prayers are with your family at your time of need. God Bless.
