    My seven-year-old diabetic daughter is in second grade. I made a special ledger for her to write her blood glucose levels on and she brings it home once per week for me to review. I was looking over her last one and in the Wednesday afternoon slot it said "4 something" (in a second grade style of writing) instead of 434 or 485 -- just "4 something." I guess she figured if it is over 400 it does not make a difference what the actual number is!
