Ok everybody we do have some exciting news to an extent. We have found a company that we are 100% excited about using. After speaking to the owner a mother of a 4 year old diabetic daughter. The conversation that I had with this mother was amazing. She explained the entire process with me and as a bonus they are from Oklahoma. The total cost of the dog for the training we need is $16,000.00 with a $3,600.00 deposit. We are so close to locking in this dog. They have 1 spot remaining and I want that spot. We will do the best we can to lock down this spot and get Wyatts Dog ready to protect and love him. Thank you so much for the love and kindness you have all showed us in this time of need. Also from the moment we secure the spot the dog will be ready within 6-8 months. Thank you sooo much Melodee Schneider for putting me in touch with This company. I will be changing our overall goal by $2,000.00 so if you see this you know why. Again thank you all

Also just an update. Once we place the $1000 dollar down payment. It will take 8 months to train the dog to Wyatts scent. Then they will deliver him here and train Wyatt with the dog for 2 days.

17We are in the process of trying to get my son Wyatt "6" a Diabetic Alert Dog. This dog will not only be there for emotional support, but also to save his life. The dog will go everywhere with him including school. The dog is trained to detect when his sugar drops below 80 and above 200. Even when the dog is asleep he is working keeping Wyatt safe. We will be putting some fundraisers together to cover the cost of $15,000.00! Thank you for all of your help and hopefully this works out. He deserves this dog he has been a Type 1 Diabetic since the age of 4 and has came along way. He has a heart of gold and the softest heart of anyone I know. He is extremely excited about the possibility of getting a dog. He has been dealing with high keytones and abnormal sugars for some time now. The last few months they avg. over 400. He is strong, but could also use the help.

Tonight as I checked Wyatt's blood sugar before he went to bed, his blood sugar was 56. Yes we took the steps to bring his sugar back to range it needed to be at, it made me so greatful and happy to know that there are kind and caring people. That would help our little boys in such a huge way. There have been many sleepless night because I'm not scared to go soundly asleep, night where I wake up and go make him say just one word, so I know he is ok. Knowing that he will have a friend to keep an eye over him and to protect him it makes me feel so much better. Yes there will still be the once and awhile mid night wake ups, but what can I say he is my baby. From the bottom of my heart I think you for everything you and your families have given us!!!
