Two sick kids at Sick Kids

So tomorrow we will have 2 sick kids at Sick Kids hospital. Remember how I said that Sarah had been drinking lots? Well I took her to a walk-in clinic today and they pricked her finger to check her blood sugar levels and they were so high the monitor wouldn’t read it. The dr was so kind and said the best place for her was Sick Kids and wanted me to take her to the emerg there. So after giving Sarah and I hugs (she did!!) off we went.

And there after doing some test on her, the dr came in and told me that Sarah has type 1 diabetes. My beautiful sweet Sarah. Never in a million years would I have imagined this.

And we feel like we’ve been hit by a Mac Truck… I took Sarah in today to rule diabetes out – not get a diagnosis!!!

Jason said to me tonight that God never gives you more than you can handle – and isn’t it crazy what you can handle? But I’m not so sure I am handling this.

So I went back and read my post from the other night to remind myself that the danger of all dangers would be to lose trust and confidence in the mercy of God. And God must have been trying to prepare me because I had read this verse this morning…

2 Corinthians 4:8
We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair, persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

And its true. This diagnosis for Sarah hurts and it doesn’t make sense and we hate it – but I know we are not forsaken.

To God be the glory.
