Today was Alec's diabetic check-up (he goes once every 3 months), and the results were not good.
His A1C's (the average level of sugar in his blood over a period of 3 months) were sky-high, yet his records show that we had some good management at home and at school. Coupled with some persistent symptoms, the doctors and I agree that his Thyroid is acting up again.
He has not been well. It's time for us to treat his Hyperthyroidism with radio-active iodine....killing the gland so that it can no longer negatively affect his diabetic care. This is the logical next step for him, and he'll feel a whole bunch better once he's done.
My mind understands this, but my heart is breaking in two. This treatment will completely kill off a part of his body. He will depend on a pill (as well as insulin) for the rest of his life....just to function normally.
I cannot ask God the question, "why Alec?"
....I know that His answer is, "Because I see around the corner of this trial, and you all will come out stronger."
God knew this was coming, and He knows the rest of Alec's story. Please pray that I will find Peace and rest in it during this storm.
