Ruby arrived when I got home from school! She helped me with my homework and then we watched tv and had supper. Oh, yes, I live in Allenstown, NH and my name is Alexa. I've had diabetes for 2 1/2 years. Ruby is having so much fun! We played with my bouncing ball. I am having a great time with Ruby!
