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)
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!!!!
We are so excited to have a NAME for our baby!!!! Her AKC Name will be Tattle Tail's Dia-Beat-This Avalanche and she will be called Avalanche (Avii for short)...we were given very specific instructions that NO PANSY names would fit this little SPITFIRE...thank GOD Mario and our boys are use to dealing with their WIFE & MOTHER...who has also been given the title of spitfire many, many times in her life <3 WE ARE SO EXCITED AND SO GRATEFUL FOR EVERYONE'S DONATIONS, PRAYERS, LOVE & ENCOURAGEMENT...we'll be meeting our sweet girl in less than 6 days <3
We are so excited to have received news that we will be picking up Jaxon's Diabetic Alert Dog the weekend of March 22nd!!! We cannot thank you enough for your love, support, prayers and donations!!!

Hi friends and family...just a few updates!! First I wanted to tell you about FREE MONEY to donate to our Jax, I know I've shown this before, but if everyone would just donate the FREE MONEY, WE WOULD BE AT OUR GOAL....all you have to do is sign up for an AMERICAN EXPRESS SERVE card, this is NOT A Credit Card...it's a prepaid American Express...you upload $25 on the card...and they MATCH THAT $25 for FREE giving you $50 on the card...then if you would like donate the FULL amount or the FREE $25....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!! DEADLINE IS DEC 31st...THEN you LOGIN to your SERVE ACCOUNT and then you will EMAIL YOUR DONATION to email@example.com. https://www.serve.com/load25/ (copy and paste link to get started)
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS DONATED THUS FAR, we are 1/4 of the way toward the goal!!! AND we have an expected date for Jaxon's D.A.D. to be either March or May, depending on nature and litter size!!! Because of your generosity we have put the deposit down!! VERY EXCITING first step!!
Jaxon has been experiencing some pretty high numbers (where the meter won't even read sometimes) so we have stepped up the Insulin and the aggressiveness in which we treat! With high numbers come severe stomach pains and headaches and some grumpiness that we understand isn't really our sweet Jax!
We had an incredible Christmas and we are enjoying the break!!!
We are praying for all of our friends and family this New Year and look forward to keeping you updated in our fundraising efforts to bring Jaxon this life-saving friend~
We've been quiet because we are trying to get Jaxon WELL...he has strep and when diabetics are sick, blood sugar levels are ALL over the place...please keep him in your prayers and share his FB page! Thank you all for your love and support <3
Thank you EVERYONE....we are so in awe of your generosity. Jaxon is currently very sick...103 fever, throat is very swollen, very weak and sugars are all over the place...this D.A.D. will be a life-saving friend for him <3
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
