a different sort of weekend


(my brother johnny, my mom + my sister becca)

this weekend my brother, who has had type 1 diabetes since he was 13, was taken to the er because of a severe diabetic reaction called diabetic ketoacidosis. he has been in the icu since saturday, but he is now stabilized and is recovering. hopefully he will get out of the icu soon and be released. 

grateful for so much, 
including that he just got a new job which gave him new insurance this month,
 and that his friend could tell something was wrong with him, 
and that she called his roommate who took him to the hospital.

looking forward to him being healthy & home.
