New This Week

- The Featured Book of the Week is Smart Pumping for People with Diabetes, edited by Howard Wolpert, MD.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Our daughter, Marissa, had had soccer practice on a recent Saturday afternoon and then played outside a little in the evening, including more soccer. Since she is often low several hours after exercise, I offered her a quarter of a Hershey chocolate bar since she had just tested at 75 and wasn't interested in a snack (she uses a pump). As I handed her the chocolate, I explained why she was getting it to our younger daughter, Kathryn. Kathryn, who rarely turns down any chocolate, said "Well, mom, I feel low, too." Of course, she doesn't have diabetes!
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your daughter wakes you up in the middle of the night and says, "Mommy, I'm beeping."
