I almost lost my daughter this past April to type I diabetes. What I thought was a simple virus ended up being Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA). This almost took her life, she was touch and go for the first 36 hours in the hospital. After four days in CCU and four days in TCU she was sent home with very little information on medication administration and maintenance. After personal strife, she is now on an insulin pump that maintains her fairly well. Although she does as she is told, her blood glucose goes up in the evening and drops dramatically during the day while she is working. It has dropped as low as 41 and that is very dangerous. Low glucose levels can cause seizures, coma and death. We have the opportunity to obtain a diabetic alert dog that will be at her side at all times. He is trained to know if her glucose is high or low and will notify her to check her levels. These dogs are trained to alert before the numbers get to a dangerous level. They are very expensive as are her diabetic supplies. We are looking for donations to help us get this dog that can help her live a longer, healthier, more productive life. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless.
