I didn’t do any more ‘day in the life posts’ because we got too busy.

Sorry. I did intend to do more ‘Day in the Life’ kind of posts but things just got so busy I didn’t post at all! I wanted to post about St Joseph the Worker, especially in light of the Review and the Government attitude toward children-but I didn’t get around to that either.

Surfice it to say that last week we met up with other home ed families and studied insects for Spring, and Egypt from Story of the World. Then there was a trip to the library and a visit to a dear friend who is now 84 and not too well these days. We have a get together with a home ed family this afternoon to celebrate a birthday and we’re off to another family tomorrow for the Bank Holiday.

I will try and formulate a moderately coherant blog entry over the next couple of days.

In the meantime keep our Josh in your prayers. He is facing some challenges which I will blog about soon.

  1. Hi!
    Thanks for your messages on my blog, and about josh’s symptoms.
    Well, as I’m sure you’ve thought already yourself, both his symptoms and his urine dipstick do seem to point strongly towards type 1 diabetes (some proteinuria can also be normal in diabetes)
    To be honest, I’m not sure whether they would want to keep him as an in-patient. I know that they definitly do keep newly diagnosed paediatrics (under-16s) as in-patients, but not so sure on adults. It might depend on
    – whether your GP practice has a well-trained diabetic nurse who can deal with his insulin doses etc (if needed)
    – what his blood glucose levels are

    …..but be prepared that they might, for a night or two initially to get his blood levels under control and start him on an insulin regimen if needed!! Initially getting the right insulin doses can be a bit tricky and some trial and error is usually involved, so being an in-patient might be preferred.

    But yes, tell him he DEFINITLY needs to go to the doc on Tuesday! If might not be diabetes at all! But he needs to have a blood test and a more detailed history and physical examination.

    Best wishes
    Do let me know how it goes
    Will pray for him.

    God Bless

  2. Prayers ascend for Josh! Hope you have a great Bank Holiday!

  3. Prayers for Josh and for you all.

    O, Mary, conceived without sin,
    pray for us who have recourse to thee.

  4. Sweetie, i know you have a busy life going on there but i was wondering if you could recommend a book on distributism….something with as few ‘big words’ in it as possible. LOL! I want to expand my knowledge of distributism but don;t want to waste money on lofty books about it, if you know what i mean.

    No rush.

    No pressure.

    Hope your son is okay 🙂
