Thank you for such a warm welcome. My son was recently diagnosis (March 25th of this year) with Type 1 and we are still learning about what all this means, really. I can tell this site is going to be very beneficial to us.

Thanks for the words of welcome. I had to check twice, you share full names with a work colleague.

I haven't had a chance to really explore, I'll have a closer look this evening.

Thanks for adding me, I am hoping to meet some new people and make some friends, and maybe learn something from some of you :) By the way, Is there a way for me to get this set on my desktop ? I have tried both left click & right click and it won't allow me to add to desktop, or bookmark :(

What I have learned (Blog number 199 of 200)
