Philip trying to recover from DKA Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Philip's Story of DKA 

2:57am. Headed to the hospital thinking Philip is completely dehydrated. This is not an attention thing. This is to notify all that I may not be in in the morning at work. I’ll keep you guys and everyone else in the know when we know. Again, I think dehydration is what we are looking at but can’t help him if he can’t keep anything down.

Mom: So quickly! We caught him early in diagnosis, and he was never in DKA before... He was fine yesterday morning, started going downhill at lunch, we thought it was just a tummy bug (which may have brought on the DKA)... Chris noticed his breathing was weird, and he was cold, so we came in. Good Dad

Dad: So, an update.. we have been moved from ER to PICU. When we got here his numbers both sugar and protein were bad. His temperature was 93.something and honestly, without telling us at first they were pretty worried about the little guy. Going forward from here it’s more IV and things to help remove the proteins from his body. We are going to have a meeting with the doctor and nurses. All and all it’s looking ok but until all of his numbers are back down in the normal range. Too much fluid in the brain and many other things to watch for the next several hours.

Ok, an update to the update. We will be here for at least the next 24 hours. If everything goes well we can leave tomorrow morning.

Dad: You can see he is breathing very hard and that’s actually a good thing. It’s his body fighting out the built-up gases from his organs. Sugar update is we finally have him around 380. He spiked around 720 so we are getting there. We are looking for that magic race of between 80 and 120 but have to take it very slowly or increase the risk of a cerebral edema. 

Chris, Thank you for allowing Drive for Diabetes Awareness, INC Non-Profit Charity to share your personal dealings with this terrible disease. We will continue to support all diabetics.

 Phillip we got your back www.CheckDontGuess.org
