J Update!

I am completely overwhelmed. When I read the responses to my plea from my last post, I was bowled over by the love and compassion.

I have friends checking up on us right and left, and I can’t tell you how good it feels to know that so many angels got my back.

I finally have an update about J.

He didn’t call yesterday, so my husband ventured out to camp to check up on him today.

He found him huddled in a large tent area playing games with his friends. He was elated to see Ryan, apparently because it broke some of the monotony.

J says they have been imprisoned for the past few days. They haven’t been able to do any of the planned activities because of the crazy rain. He says they have been completely bored.


Ryan asked if he wanted to go home, and he said, “Yes, but I’m not going to. If it were because I was having problems with my sugars, then it would be ok. But it doesn’t seem fair just to leave because I am bored.”

Hello awesomeness.

Speaking of numbers…

Ryan says that his numbers have been PHENOMENAL! He actually used the word phenomenal over and over again. He said there were a couple lows…one 55 on the first day, one in the seventies and one in the eighties, but otherwise every gosh dang number has been in the 100’s. He has been checking his BG AT LEAST 5 times a day, and is on track to earn that 50 bucks I promised him.

Could it be that he is just so much better than me at taking care of his body?

Or do his numbers show that it is a proven fact that prayer works?

I have no doubt that his success, although greatly attributed to his amazing self, also have something to do with the prayers and good thoughts that YOU, my friends, have sent my way.

He will be home tomorrow. I’m going to make it a point to sleep like a rock tonight. Not only for me, but for J too. He deserves a mom that can trust him after he has put in the hard work. I trust that he will continue to take good care of himself until tomorrow. I’m talking the talk, and now it’s time to walk the walk. I’m officially done worrying about 6th grade camp.

I’m not done over reacting and worrying all together…not by a long shot. But I feel confident that J’s got this.

Calling All Prayers.

Some of you who know me, know that there have been a few times that J has gone away over night this year, and I kinda freaked out about it. Some of those times in particular, I did a really GREAT job of pretending I was fine…but inside my gut was jello waiting for my guy to get home safe. I’ve done a lot of internal freaking out this year..A LOT.

Those times have NOTHING on today.

Because I’m WAY PAST freaking out people. I am miles past freaking out…freaking out is a kiddie ride at the fair right now…a total cake walk…

Where I am right now is not pretty.

I left J in a downpour of rain, standing in 3 inches of six grade camp. 45 minutes away.

Six grade camp, that is 45 minutes away that lasts FOUR DAYS.

I think I’ve covered all my bases.

I have his monitor clipped to his belt loop.

I have snacks everywhere…of which I hope no bears come into his cabin to eat…his cabin that has no windows…

I have fast acting sugar in his pocket.

I have an alarm clock for the councilor that is sleeping in his “cabin.” So he can do a 2:00am check.

I promised his friends some kind of reward if they reminded him to check, at which time 2 of his friends set their alarms for 2:00am.

I have extra everything packed, including batteries in case his pump battery goes low.

I have bribed J to check his sugar 5x a day…for if he does, he gets 50 bucks.

I have everything covered…except my peace of mind.

I left him there, and I lost it. I cried all the way home…I sit here a raccoon.

(Hello! Can you say, "Drama Queen.")

That is where you come in…

I need a favor. A real honest to gosh favor.

If you are the praying type…and I know most of us spend A LOT of time on our knees…so if you are the kind of person who prays…

Please, could you say a prayer for J?

Pray that he remembers to check…that he will feel his lows…that he will be safe. And maybe throw in a little peace of mind for me?

I’m asking because know that prayer works. Our prayers are heard! So please…can you take just a minute to say a little prayer for me?

And if you aren’t the praying type…good thoughts would help too. I’ll gratefully accept whatever you send our way.

Thanks guys. I know I'm being a complete dopus about all this…I just know that right now I can’t do this on my own. I need a little extra help from my guardian angels on this one.

Lucky for me…I have a bunch of angels that read my blog.
