Hi Lorraine...It's been awhile since I've been around here but was just reminded about how great this forum when I mentioned Caleb's name this weekend. My cousin call me as he 11 yr old son was just diagnosed w/ T1. We talked for a long time and I urged him to get connected to this group and told him about a little boy that I knew of named Caleb and that he would be a great inspiration to his son Jack. Can't believe how big Caleb looks since I last saw some of his photos and he certainly looks like a little man! Glad to see all the baseball pics and believe he was a big Yankee fan! Just wanted to drop you a note and say how much I learned from your posts & blogs when I first decided to go on the OmniPod and you & Caleb have helped more people than you can imagine! Happy St. Patricks Day and I wish Caleb the best this summer with Baseball!

Having a bit of trouble with the website, and can't find contact info for the webmaster. The Problem: if my post is accidentally longer than 140 characters, it sets a flag (only 140 characters allowed). But after I edit and remove some characters, the flag does not reset, as the result, once i go over the limit, I can not make the post no matter how much i change to get it in the proper limit. This is a fairly easy software fix....

And I have been doing them. I used to do each one alone. Thank God I learned how to paste and copy. Tomorrow a holiday. Should be light unless a lot of Europeans. I got good Thanksgiving news. I do not need surgery on my knees. At age 86, I am so thankful I am as healthy as I am yes. I am cooking the Thanksgiving dinner. HAPPY THANKSGIVING. Reed

Lorraine, we could use some comments/pics from parents here (or you can msg me). Would you, please? Who else should I be asking?

Lorraine, thank you so much, again, for your help with the “How to Make Blue Cool at School” guide for parents on Discuss Diabetes! Your ideas are inspiring and I think our readers will really benefit.

Hi Lorraine....sorry for not giving you a follow up, but THANK YOU so much for checking in on me :)
All is fine now....I had problems with my darling computer clicking off for no reason (computers too have attitude issues!)...anyhow after that, nothing was the same, very slow...was not allowing me this and that...and the inability to see the birthday pics for example....the problem was solved via Marie who suggested I enter via Mozilla Firefox...EUREKA! Problem solved :)
Take care....and HAPPY LABOUR DAY!
