Default Re: Ricky's story

I agree about the internet and all the resources that are available now making the difference between just surviving with diabetes and actually living with it. When we had Butchie to care for, we actually bought a glucometer, then couldn't find any info on how to use it on him. He was diabetic for NINE YEARS without benefit of blood testing. Needless to say, we went through some terrible times with bouts of pancreatitis (I now know that's what it was), and everything else. We never really knew about the relationship between the insulin and the food. Now, I feel we are armed with the best information we can get, and with the help of you guys here, the best support we can get, and Ricky has a much better chance of LIVING with diabetes. Thank you all so much.

Love, Teresa and Ricky
