Rufus arrived today. Just in time. When he arrived, my son Biagio (who is six years old and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 2 1/2 years old) just woke up from a short nap. That morning we went swimming and he was tired from all the exercise and heat. It was very hot today. Rufus gave Biagio (bee-ah-joe) and Josephine 4 years old and Mariella 1 1/2 years old (Biagio's younger sisters) a hug hello! He told us that he met alot of nice people at the convention in Orlando, Florida. He told us about the meetings and fun activities that were held there. We decided it was time for Rufus and Biagio to test there blood. Biagio was 135 and Rufuswas 110. We had a light snack, and the kids and Rufus rode bicycles in front of the house. When we all came in, Biagioand Rufus decided to play while Mommy, Josephine and Mariella cooked dinner. I had Biagio and Rufus test their bloodand I gave them their insulin. After dinner the kids got bathedand off to bed they went.
Today was a very busy day. We ran a lot of errands. We stopped by the park along the way. We played with some friends.
We took Rufus out to dinner. He ate a big cheeseburger! Rufus can eat a lot. We love Rufus!
Rufus and Biagio played on his Nintendo 64. It rained all day!
It rained again, all day long! The kids played on the computer and watched Nick Jr. and Cartoon Network.
It rained again, all day long. We played games and ate popcorn.
Well we're pretty sad tonight, we're preparing Rufus for his trip. The kids gave him a hug and kiss and said goodbye! We love you Rufus! Hope to see you soon!
