First, count on it, prayers are on the way... (+) to you and all of your family. The Lord is taking care of you.. in His way. Second, glad that you went to ER and let them do their magic. Being sick and in the hospital sucks.. and getting that kind of news doesn't much help improve the mood. However, the good news does.
Here is some more good news. Type II Diabetes can be maintained and in many cases not only controlled but the severity can be reduced greatly to almost pre-diagnosis levels. Getting plenty of good cardio excercise, watching sugar intake, eating healthy - I mean healthy.. lots of veggies and such, and (this was excruciating for me -- giving up stuff like TeeWurst, Brats and other German Delicacies was brutal, but I am now obtaining 10% or less fat products -- which is excellent), paying lots of attention to what goes into our foods can be very helpful. I like many have gone from large doses of Metformin and similar diabetic drugs to maintaining my Type II via Diet and Excercise. Best thing I ever did.. plus of course.. quit smoking.. that helped a lot. Also for me, I began losing my addiction to desserts about 10 years ago as a side effect of many of my meds, and that was a bonus and helped me lose 50 lbs and keep it off.

I am proud to have met many of you and look forward to meeting more in the future, thanks for letting me ramble.
Totally understand.. ain't this just the greatest
This forum has helped me through so much, and I know it will be of help to you also. It is all about the people ... and how we interact. A really big family.. with tons of cousins we haven't all met in person yet
