What?? No more embassies, and now the European members are going as well??!!!
Why? One one the appealing factors of Tu. is that IT IS world wide!!
Oh my gosh....I am SO SO saddened by this.

thanks for your honest opinion, i thought she was sugar coating things, i've been thinking of getting a new doctor for Jacob we'll see how it goes, Jacob and I do all the 'leg' work anyways! i hope you are feeling well, good luck with your pregnancy!

Melissa, Thanks for your input on the omnipod prep, I hope your arm is better that sounds painful and ? serious hope you are ok. I was looking at your site and impressed with your positive attitude. Your daughter is beautiful, what a blessing. I wanted to ask you a question. Jacob's endo is so bubble gum and dumbs everything down, she suggests when he is adult things are much easier and he should hang out around 120. I am expecting some challenges as jacob starts growing more but do you think things are more stable as an adult? I was impressed with your HgAIC! Jacob has been between 7.2-7.8, 2.5 years into type 1 and about 6 months with the omnipod. Wishing you lots of luck with baby # 2! Amy

Hi, I do not know if I am writing to the right person but I like to read and comment on Nutshell when logging in to my computer. Unfortunately for the last 10 days or so I have been able to see the messages but am unable to comment. It keeps coming up that Nutshell is not a valid website! Do you know what I can do to get back on to comment? If I am not writing to the right person could you please pass this on? Thank you. Bestwishes. Latvianchick.
