It’s Halloween!

Today is Halloween and the end of October, but it’s also the beginning of my third year living with Type 1 Diabetes. Since my diagnosis in October, 2012, I have had over 3,000 insulin shots and about twice as many finger pricks. Tonight my mom talked to me about experimental therapy that JDRF is helping to fund that could someday help Type 1 diabetics like me. I hope it works, but for now my parents and I work hard to keep my glucose numbers in check and my A1C levels between 6 and 7. Of course I have my ups and downs, but I am healthy and happy and can’t wait to go trick-or-treating! Happy Halloween!

    Hi John,

    Hope you had loads of fun on Halloween, I’ve been out for a couple of days and missed you email on Friday, great costume, as usual Mom does so much to help out in the fun department.
    The holidays are coming up, hope to see you soon.
    Love Aunt Rose
