- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My 4 year old daughter has started to identify numbers. She can also proudly do her own blood glucose tests. Yesterday she called out the number on her meter "it says 28." I quickly double-checked the number and in about 5 seconds flat I leaped across the kitchen and squirted a box of juice into her mouth (and elsewhere) - all the while wondering how on earth she was still standing and seemingly coherent. Then I realized the meter was stuck on the "CHECK CODE" screen. By the time I had recovered enough to re-test her, she was at 335.
