Every time Max goes to a friend's for a sleepover, he always ends his night with a FaceTime call to me. I just love it! It doesn't matter if it's midnight or 10 pm, he'll call and tell me goodnight. It's just so sweet and I know he won't want to do that much longer. He helped serve communion at church this weekend and I was just so proud of him. 😍

Sweet Greer came in my room early this morning for a little snuggle time. She told me sometimes at school her head hurts and her tummy hurts. I asked her if she's afraid she has diabetes. She said yes and started crying😢. I reassured her...reminding her of this weekend when we made everyone prick their finger and check their blood sugar. Today is Atticus first day back at school. He was ready this morning. He's nervous and a little scared. It's so hard to see him having to grow up overnight.

Waiting on lab results. If levels are better, we'll head to the diabetes center for a full day of diabetes school. Atticus is feeling better and looking better and so ready to get out of here. I, on the other hand, don't want us to leave until his body is ready...I don't want to be back in the ER tomorrow.

On Tuesday, Max was able to stay home one more day with Atticus and Greer and I was planning on taking off and staying with then for the next few. Greer ear was still really oozing, so we thought another day would be good for her to be at home. Max texted me at 11 that Atticus was complaining of ear pain. So we scheduled an appointment for him at 1:30. The doctor confirmed the ear infection and prescribed antibiotics. I texted this to Max while they were there:
vomit into our room. That began the every 30 minutes of throwing up for the rest of the night. Greer woke up around 1 am and told me her "ear was sweating". Her eardrum had ruptured. After a long sleepless night, I got Greer to doc, got antibiotics and drops for the ruptured eardrum and left Max III, Atticus & Greer at home for the day while I went to work. Atticus finally stopped throwing up around 7 pm Monday night. He was peeing every few hours so I thought he wasn't dehydrated and he was just going through the flu process.
Here we are. He still in diabetic ketoacidosis. They were hoping he'd be out of it by now. But his levels have stopped going up-specifically his bicarbonate. It's gone from 5 to 14, which is good, but we need it at 22. He's been at 14 for the past 6 hours. Praying the levels will start moving again. It was a long night with lots of pokes and blood draws. We are exhausted. His ear is hurting from the ear infection and they are finally going to give him the antibiotics for that in half an hour.
