Camp Day 4

When Matthew started camp, I listed some prayer requests. Here is the update:
  • I wanted Matthew to have a great time at camp! He has LOVED it!
  • I wanted his blood sugar to stay in range. As of today, his BS has been great. He only had 1 low at camp and no highs. (Overnights have been tricky. All the added exercise has made him drop significantly at night. But I adjusted his insulin, checked about every 2 hours and did juice. It all worked out.)
  • I was hoping Matthew would meet a good buddy with he same values. He's actually met several kids and that he'll love seeing again next year.
  • You know I wanted Matthew to get brave enough to give himself a shot. At the time of writing this, he's done THREE shots! I told him we should set a summer goal. Maybe he could give himself 1 shot a day, or 1 every other day. He chose doing 1 shot every day. W.O.W.
  • Finally....I was hoping he would be inspired by his CIT (counselor-in-training). Matthew says when he's a teenager he wants to be a CIT and then be a counselor one day! Awesome!

God answered every prayer better than I could have dreamed! He also gave me such peace. I never worried about his safety at all. That has been such a blessing.

Camp rocks!

Wow! I am so proud of you both!! Just being able to let him go at such an early stage in the diagnosis is a real accomplishment for you Tracy. You should be so proud. Also, Matthew - WOW, WOW, WOW!!! Giving yourself a shot is amazing, I bet it's something your mom has NEVER done before. You have shown that you can do ANYTHING you want - there are no obstacles for you. And being a camp counselor is a great goal - Duncan wants to do the same thing at his bible camp. Yea!!
