Back to Rufus Rufus Visits the Lore Family

The Lore Family, Baldwinsville, New York

March 31, 2001
Rufus arrives here at the Lore's Baldwinsville, New York. Abigail and Christopher Lore were very excited to meet Rufus. Abigail had been ill today with a stomach ache and had to leave school. This was our first illness since diagnosis on June 23, 2000. It made her day to see Rufus. Abby and Rufus both had to test Blood Glucose every hour! Oh, what a night!

April 1, 2001
Abigail feels so much better today. Rufus has a busy day. The "Cheetahs" have a soccer game, then Dance class, then a "Daisy's" outing. Rufus drew alot of attention at the soccer game, everyone wanted to know the story of Rufus and his travels. Two families vowed to support the next walk! Next was dance class, while Abby was dancing, her twin brother Christopher gladly told all who asked the story of Rufus.

April 1 continued:
The Daisy Girl Scout troop enjoyed a play, "The 3 Little Pigs." Rufus took insulin as well as finger sticks before, during and after the play. All the Daisys now understand what "diabetics have to do." Rufus may also be able to witness the record snowfall in Syracuse, New York! Good night Abigail and Rufus see you for finger sticks at 10p, 12p, and 2am!

April 2, 2001
Rufus goes to school with Abigail and Christopher. Rufus visits the kindergarten class and Mrs Schotthoefer reads "Rufus Comes Home" to the class, Abigail and Christopher both answered questions their fellow 5 and 6 year olds had about Abby's diabetes. Rufus goes to the nurses office for all BG checks and Rufus met the principal. Everyone is learning more about Type 1 diabetes. What fun school is.

Good Night and Good Bye Rufus. We were so glad you were able to come here and visit. We will miss you! Have fun!
