Hope and A Great Example to Follow
I'm sure you read about them, but their story is worth repeating.
The article is about two brothers who have had Type 1 diabetes for 81 years and still going strong. Read about how they did it and continue to do it.
Brendon overheard me talking about the article. He later said he didn't want to eat sweets anymore. I asked him why. He said he wanted to live to be 90. I said that's great, but he won't be eating cake, cookies, ice cream, or candy anymore (not that he gets those often anyway). He asked me what he would get instead of cake on his birthday and I said he could have a bowl of oatmeal with a candle in it. He wasn't too keen on that idea, so he decided that he would have sweets only sometimes.
Don't worry my sweet Brendon. You'll live a long, happy, healthy life. Happy Birthday (Feb 4).
