New This Week
- Last week's poll asked parents about where their child checks their blood glucose level while at school. This week's poll asks parents if someone at their child's school will administer glucagon if needed.
- The Featured Book of the Week is Why Me? Why Did I Have To Get Diabetes? by Robert Messinger and Laura Messinger.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I recently had to take one of my 3-year-old twins to Clinic for her check-up. My non-diabetic twin asked if her sister's insulin pump was broken. When I told her "No, but her pancreas doesn't work." She replied, "We need to get her pancreas new batteries!" If it were only that easy.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you reach under his blankets to find the remote to turn of his T.V. and accidentally grab his pump instead! See more parent humor.
