I've got a very bad feeling about this . . .

My parents are in town today because my dad had a doctor's appointment this morning. He had bloodwork scheduled at 7:30, then his regular appt at 8:30 and they were going to head over here once they were done. I was thinking it was strange that it was almost 10 and I hadn't heard from them when my mom called. She said that my dad has to have more bloodwork done and that they have to learn how to give my dad insulin shots as a result of his original bloodwork. This can't be a good thing because its the first time in the 15 years that he has had diabetes that he has been dependant on shots instead of just diet/exercise/pills. Mom said that they may be at the hospital all day.

I have a bad feeling about this. If there is something really wrong I don't know that I can handle it. We had the whole cancer scare with him a few months back. I've learned to deal with his Parkingsons, but I can't take much more happening to him.

I hope I'm just over-reacting. I wish I could call and talk to my sister about this, but she would just freak out ~ she's not a good support system in times like these. I wish I had Matt.

I'm sorry to hear it as well...
Diabetes gets tough sometimes, but it is managable with the right education and support.
I'll pray for him and your family as well!
