- The Featured Book of the Week is Breakthrough: Elizabeth Hughes, the Discovery of Insulin, and the Making of a Medical Miracle by Thea Cooper and Arthur Ainsberg.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
It was shortly before noon and my 6 year old told me that she felt low, so she grabbed her monitor and tested her blood sugar. She announced that her blood sugar was 33 so I panicked and grabbed a glucose tablet and juice box. After I juiced her up, I tested her again to see if her blood sugar had come up and the monitor now read "HI". I checked her previous reading and the monitor read "303". I guess in her little mind's eye it read 30 3. This will be a family favorite for years to come.
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your 3-year-old son with diabetes asks every person who drinks juice, "Are you low?" See more parent humor.
