Rufus arrive in Princeton today. We can't wait to start our adventure but Krystyna's blood sugar is low and we have to retest now. Be back soon!
We're back. My blood sugar was 54 so I am having a snack and going to test again in 15 minutes. It's almost bed time. Rufus is going to sleep with me and Goldie (my favorite stuffed animal) tonight.
My blood sugar is now 64. Goodnight!

Rufus had a quiet day today. He got to hang out with Goldie and Barbie all day while me and Kryssy were at work and school. Tomorrow we're going to take Rufus to the Novo Nordisk offices down the road from us and hopefully we'll get to see how Novolin is made or marketed. We're also going to visit Princeton University and introduce Rufus to "The Tigers." It's time for Rufus to go to bed now. Goodnight everyone.

Rufus had a great weekend exploring New Jersey. He had one high blood sugar Saturday night, but we're sure that was due to excitement during Toy Story 2!

Rufus went to school with Kryssy today. Rufus told Dryssy's second grade class all about type 1 diabetes and showed everyone where he gets his shots and tests his sugar. Last night Kryssy and Rufus went sight-seeing in Princeton and got a pin for his lapel.

Rufus moves on to the next family today. We'll miss you, Rufus, but your cousin Ruby is coming to live with us soon, so we're very happy, too! Hope to see you in Orlando at the CWD conference! Love you, Rufus. See you soon.
