A Big Big Thank You

I want to extend a big, big thank you to the folks at 911, the rescue squad from Gainesville and my next door neighbors, Alan and Leah, who helped me in the wee hours of Sunday morning when I discovered that Jack had slipped into a diabetic coma. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I will spare you all the details but simply state that the injection of glucose that the rescue team gave him brought him around and by mid morning he was returning to normal. Of course, I wasn't. That was when I realized how serious this was and went from an adrenalin rushed woman to an adrenalin zapped dishrag. But as the line goes, all is well that ends well and we are both back to our perky selves once more so we went over and played with our grandson, Baby Jack. I took some photos of him doing a little stomp dance. I will post them tomorrow.

Oh Joann, I can't even imagine how frightening that must have been. I'm so glad everything is okay now.

Yes Amen to 911 and their quick response. My husband has had some major heart problems, and I do thank 911 for all they did. He's doing great now after 5 bypasses, a stint and a pace maker...but he's still ticking!! PTL.

That has to be one of the most scary events ever. How did you happen to notice he has slipped into the coma? That was the miracle. You discovered it. Just from reading it sounds like you two were in bed and asleep and then for some reason you woke up and found him in the coma.

I am happy for both of you that it worked out OK.

Joan: Send my best to Jack amd I do hope he gets this under control. This is a dangerous problem to work through.

I'm happy to hear that Jack is fine now. I'm sure that was very scary.
