- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
I had just got finished checking my daughter's blood sugar and had left her bag on the washing machine. When I came back in the kitchen my non D son had her lancet and was holding it to the chicken that we were having for dinner. I asked him what he was doing and he said, "I am checking the chicken's blood sugar."
- You know you're the parent of a child with diabetes when you have a car that displays the miles remaining before it runs out of gas, and not only do you always think of that number in terms of a blood sugar, but any time it ticks down to 50, at least two people in the car shout "The car is low! It needs glucose!" I just wish my daughter had a little yellow warning light on her forehead too. See more parent humor.
