- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
My four year old Sarah was just diagnosed early this year. A friend gave us the book "Diabetes for Dummies." One day Sarah asked what I was reading and I told her "Diabetes for Dummies." I didn't want her to think that she was a Dummy because she now had diabetes so I quickly added, "I'm the Dummy." A few days later she asked if she would always have diabetes. I gently told her yes. With great concern she then asked, "Will you always be a Dummy?"
