The Optimist Hamster says: 1 day @ a time

Kerri Morrone made me aware of this infinitely cute hamster today. I thought of recruiting his help to convey a message of hope to a friend in the community who is going through rough times. She knows who she is... Beyond that, feel free to share "The Optimistic Hamster" with others who may need it.

If you want to do your own version of "The Optimistic Hamster", you can find the original hamster here. If you do it, please upload it back in TuDiabetes and tag it "hamster".

Digg this.

I'm adopting the hamster this week too. Too many details to bore everyone with. I'll be back in the chat room soon.....hopefully.

- Yes I realized later I added an "e" to insulin - too tired to fix it. Cheers.
