"And you shall call his name Jesus..."

« on: January 02, 2004, 03:14:50 PM »

Compared to some of the other requests here, this seems kinda silly, but if you could spare some prayers for me, I would appreciate it.  My doctor called me a while ago and told me I need to have some blood work done while fasting because, when he did some blood work on me when I went to get seen for the flu, while everything else is within normal limits, my blood sugar was a bit high.  Since I've never really had problems with that before, and since I don't think I lead a lifestyle conducive to such problems, I'm hoping it was just a momentary spike while I had my 103 temp.  But I would hate for it to be diabetes or something, it seems to be a rather annoying health problem to have.  Prayers please.

The Mor has spoken. Let his word endure unto the ages of ages.

Please, James, tell us more about women!

oh of course Prayers, Phil.

Hopefully this will cheer you up - blood sugars can go crazy when fighting infection - so try not to worry too much

Prayers.  As one with diabetes it can be a pain but it is not that bad.  It does require modifying the traditonal fasts a bit.

Dear Phil:

As a recently diagnosed Type 2 diabetic, I share your concerns.

This illness is , indeed, THAT annoying to have with all the self-testing kits and the corresponding pills to swallow at least twice daily!

Don't you worry though, Type 2 apparently afflicts only us, the seniors!

Better to be safe then sorry, you are on my prayer list.

I worry about that, too, since diabetes runs in my dad's family.
