I would like to share something with you all.I posted PRAY earlier because I know first hand that God can and will move. I know this is a diabetes site but this is a testimony of God taking care of my daughter. She has Type one and with one there are so many factors to consider and also dealing with a 10 year old if she laughs real hard if she runs too long if she is sad all this reacts with her bloodsugar.About a year ago she went to bed with a good bloodsugar level(she doesn't go to bed unless above 150) well, she woke up before me and her nana was having coffee at the table and my husband she walked through the room stopped and said her back itched her nana scratched it and she went to turn on the T.V. in the next minute her nana looked at her and she was unconcious shaking on the floor in a full seizure they screamed for me and when I walked in all I could think was she was gone from me her lips were blue there was no response I ran for her meter and her bs was 11 we had 911 on the phone but it would take them 20 minutes to get here so i grabbed the sugar bowl and rubbed it inside her mouth and started praying I don't even know what I said I only know I prayed louder and more earnestly than I ever had I didn't want to let her go.Well about three minutes later she started throwing up and woke up her bs was 125!!! I can't tell you how thankful we were that day. She doesn't remember any of it and I'm glad for that. They said her blood sugar dropped during the night from playing hard that afternoon and by the time she went from her room to the den it was too low.She stayed in the hospital a week and when she came home I couln't sleep for keeping a check on her bs. That truly was the scariest day of my life and the feelings of thinking I didn't catch that low before it went so far was overwhelming.God was here in a way I've never felt and He gave me comfort in my inadequate feelings about myself and He gave me back my little girl that morning and my heart is broke tonight for this mother waiting for her son to come around I can't imagine what she's feeling but I can pray. There is no such thing as too much prayer and there is NOTHING too hard or too far away for my Jesus to touch.

I so believe in the power of prayer. God was absolutely there with you and your daughter as you have said you felt his presence. Seems in our darkest hours, He is always with us. I pray for God's love to surround you and your precious daughter. I can not even imagine how you stood up through all of this, but I know, God gave you the strength and knowledge how to help your daughter.

It's truly amazing how the Creator listens to us all. There most certainly was a Guardian Angel there that day and guiding your attention. You may want to test her bg during the night once in awhile especially if she has played alot the day before or has been especially excited or active. That is what they did for me when I first was diagnosed in1990, and I often check to make sure that they are ok for me to go to sleep with. I prefer mine to be 175 or higher, not reccommended, but if it works, I'm safer.
