Please enjoy these photos taken by a fellow Type 1 diabetic Jenny Ringholz~She is very talented...we cannot say THANK YOU ENOUGH for your support, love, prayers and well wishes. Avii has alerted to ALL of Jaxon's Low Blood Sugars and we could not be more proud of her and of Jaxon! Jaxon is headed for ANOTHER BIG change in his diabetes care. We are currently working with insurance to get him an insulin pump!! Jaxon is very excited, parents are very nervous! The insulin pump will create more freedom for Jaxon as he enters his teenage years (did I really just say that)...my baby a teenager!!!

Again, THANK YOU ALL for your donations, this would NOT have been possible without Christ and YOU!!!

With all of our love and thanks,
The Youngblood Family (including Avii)

Well...today is the day~We are flying out to meet Avii, we board late tonight and tomorrow noon Utah time, Jaxon will get to meet her!

Make sure you follow Jaxon's journey on FB and LIKE his page https://www.facebook.com/DADForJax?ref=ts&fref=ts

Without the Grace of God, all of the generous donations, the kindness of friends and family and so people we have not met yet, this would have never happened!

We are in the last days of our fundraising and just waiting on a few donations to come in! If you feel it in your heart to give, we would be so grateful.

We cannot say thank you enough to those that have prayed for us, donated and supported us though this exciting adventure of making this life-saving friend a reality for Jaxon. I woke up around midnight last night and had an unsettled feeling, ran to test Jaxon and he was 85...on his way down from 520...Avii will catch these lows before his glucose meter and probably before my mommy intuition can take over~so again THANK YOU and make sure you check FB over the weekend to see their journey take flight.

Have an amazing Palm Sunday as we prepare our hearts and minds for the Resurrection of our Lord!!!!

~Kristy

This page is dedicated to our family dream to get JAX a D.A.D. (Diabetic Alert Dog).  These life-saving friends can detect highs and lows before the glucometer and are 98% accurate.  We DREAM OF A DAD AND A CURE.  Here's how Jaxon's Diabetes started~
Saturday, August 18th will be forever remembered as the day our lives changed and Jaxon's forever transformed.  We were out doing last minute school shopping as school was to start on Wednesday.  We had gone to a few stores and we drank all the water we  brought with us, so while at Costco, Jaxon asked to get a coke, I said 59 cents, sure, handed him a dollar bill and about 2 mins later, fear set in for Mario.  After about 2 sips, less than 4 oz of a "suicide" Jaxon became very ill, stomach cramps, almost vomiting and pale and clammy.  Mario looked at me and say "you are taking him to the ER"...remember, we JUST moved to South Carolina, I don't even know WHERE the ER IS....so it is only about 4 mins from our home, so we dropped off Mario and the 2 younger boys and off we go...the whole time, I'm not even thinking we were about to hear what we did...after the triage test, which tested levels up to 300, we were quickly moved to a room and blood drawn for another test...his levels were too high for the finger stick, so on to an IV being put in and 3 vials of blood drawn, another test which measured up to 600...he was STILL TOO HIGH...on to the special test to get his blood sugar levels of 1051...yes ONE THOUSAND AND FIFTY ONE...for a boys Jaxon's age and size that is 10 TIMES what it should be...so then we are being transported via ambulance to the Children's Hospital at Greenville Memorial.  We talked to countless nurses, specialist, EMTs and Doctors that ALL said how BLESSED we are that Jaxon ISN'T IN A COMA...a COMA...or dead...WHAT....woa, life can change SO FAST...we spend 3 days in the hospital and were released to the Endocrinologist...and THE JOURNEY BEGAN...
