- The Featured Book of the Week is Diabetic Athlete's Handbook by Sheri Colberg, Ph.D.
- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
When my 5-year-old daughter, Danielle, was diagnosed with diabetes we explained it to her and her 3-year-old brother, Ben, that her blood sugar could be high, low or in the middle and we were trying to keep her in the middle by giving her insulin shots. A few weeks later we took both of them to get their flu shots and Ben started screaming as loud as he could to anyone who would listen, "I am in the middle! I am in the middle!"
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when your child practices her math facts using her MultiClix lancing device as a counter! See more parent humor.
