Sorrow this week. A child here has been diagnosed with diabetes. I can't help the tears every time I think about it.
Yet there is joy - and tremendous pride. Seeing how he copes with this so bravely: administering his own blood tests, monitoring his symptoms, injecting himself with insulin... I am humbled.
I hope our next fund-raising event will be for the national diabetes charity. I so long to find a cure. Bring on the research!
