Another Reminder of Time Slipping Away

Dear Friends, Thank you for understanding me! I have a terrible time with time!

Another reminder last night of precious time not spent with those who really mean the most to us. My daughter, Kimberli, is back in the hospital. For those of you who don't know Kim's circumstances, a brief explanation: Kimberli is a Type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetic. Kimberli is what is known as a 'brittle' diabetic, there is no controlling her sugar levels; not by her, her specialists, or her hospital. Kim has neuropathy problems with her skin, her stomach, her intestines, her pancreas, her liver, and now possibly her eyes. Because of diabetes she cannot control her bowel movements, feel the temperature of water when she showers or prepares the tub for her little boy, digest her food in a timely manner, control her blood pressure, or see without dark sunglasses. Yesterday she went into what is called keto-acidosis and is a dangerous condition for a diabetic. She was having chest pains and was very weak; the ER doctors think she might have had a heart attack. They are running periodic test to map the tell tale signs in her blood. She is so vulnerable. She is only 39 years old and the mother of two. Please include her on your prayer list; I want much more time with her. Thank you.

Kim with my dad in March of this year.

Dearest Liv,
I will be praying for her from now on...I am so sorry for your scary time right now with her! It is so tough when your kids are in pain and there is nothing you can do except get on your knees and pray.
Bless you and Kim,

Oh Liv, How did I miss this posting about your precious daughter? I've been so caught up in trying to keep my life together that I haven't gotten to read or comment on blogs. xoRachel
