    Hey guys, quick prayer for Jason “Donner”. He is in Winber Hospital in critical care. His diabetes is acting up and caused his organs to begin to shut down along with a lung infection. Really dehydrated. All of his organs are ok except for his kidneys which took the brunt of things and are working at a very low level. Hopefully with the rehydration the Dr’s are hoping they will start to function right. I just got off the phone with him and I hope I am passing along this message right. Just thought I would let you guys know. He would do the same for me Im sure.

    Thank you for the thoughts and prayers{#emotions_dlg.mathews_hugs}
    I got whats called DKA which diabetics can get. I had never had nor heard of it before. I thought I was just under the weather a little with a stomach flu or something and left it go much longer than I should have. It dehydrates you and I left it go to the point that it was shutting down my organs, with my kidneys taking the blunt of it.
    I was told that I was going to be in the hospital alot longer but my body responded well to the treatment. 8 bags of IV along with many other drugs, so they released me yesterday. All my organs were normal except my kidneys which did improve enough to be in the safe range so I will be gtting test done every week for a while.
    I guess its time to quit being so darn stubborn with certain things.
