Why I hardly ever post here

Posted on February 1, 2008 at 7:39am 1 Comment

Hi guys. I hardly ever post here. But, I'm around. I visit often and join in discussions occasionally.

I just wanted to refer you to my regular blog. I've been posting at My Son Has Diabetes for a little over 2 years now. That's why I never post here. It's hard for me to keep up with one blog, let alone two.

I probably won't post here again. I have a feed to my blog on my tudiabetes page so my most recent post is always in…

Check out my video

Please take time to go to the video section and check out my video entitled Walk of Hope 2007.

It is the video I made for my walk this year.

A Strange Question

Posted on October 3, 2007 at 11:10am 3 Comments

I was speaking to another mother of a child with D today about Walk of Hope. I had invited her daughter to come out and walk as well as to be included in my Faces of Hope presentation. I didn't even ask for a donation because I knew they participated in a JDRF walk.



She said she had never heard of The Iacocca Foundation. I wasn't surprised. I'm sure plenty…

Does this bother you?

Posted on September 21, 2007 at 6:09am 0 Comments

I'm paraphrasing here, but read this statement from a radio ad and see what you think:



"...kids eating school lunches leading them down the path to obesity and diabetes"







Does that statement bother anyone else?







It is a radio ad for Boar's Head turkey. I'm in the car a lot and I hear this ad… Continue

Hopeful Faces

Posted on September 19, 2007 at 1:53pm 0 Comments

Walk of Hope is coming up in a few short weeks. I am doing a presentation again this year entitled "The Faces of Hope".



It's just a little slide show of people with Type 1 with a info like their age, age at diagnosis, hobbies, where they live (if they chose to share). Along with that I need a picture.



I had 22 hopeful faces last year. But, this year I only have 10.



If any of you would like to help me out I'd appreciate…

Hi, Penny! How's things going?

Hi Penny
I checked out your blog My son has diabetes. It made me cry. I hope to start a blog myself soon. I know it has been so helpful to me to read about others trials coping with this terrible disease our kids have. I'm sure that it would be helpful for me to just put the everyday problems and the good things that happens in writing. Thanks for being there.

Penny: would you be able to help me spread the word about the Children's Contest among the members of the Parents group? Here is the link:

Thanks a lot!

Penny, did your son start out on Lantus? Did he adjust to it pretty fast? How was your experience switching to the pump? How long did the process take once you decided to use a pump, until he was fully "up and running" on the pump?
