My two littlest and I spent most of yesterday at Summa Hospital in Akron. My bride, Michelle, Is expecting in August and had been admitted to stabilize her blood sugar; she has developed diabetes and they need to find a regimen that will keep her symptoms manageable. She was supposed to only be in the hospital for 24 hours, but when I talked to her this morning she reports that they have not been successful and she may be in longer.
I have taken off work -thank God for paid sick leave, fruit of the sacrifices of organized Labor- and have the rare occasion to try and keep on top of the household, which always makes me appreciate all Michelle does. This would have been infinitely more difficult were it not for the fact that our two year old, Will, is such a good-natured little man; all this and a fussy kid would be harrowing.
Pray that the doctors are able to stabilize my bride’s diabetes, that she have a smooth delivery with a healthy baby, and that she – and I – are able to endure whatever ordeal may come.
Thanks. (And if blog posts are rare or nonexistent in the near future, you know why)…
