I just had to share this...
We were at Dunkin' Donuts this morning (reward for being brave after his 5 year check up!) and he was in an especially talkative mood. He struck up a conversation with a lady and she asked him about what was on his arm (his pump site.)
He says, "Um, it gives me insulin for my diabetes. One day I went to football practice and then we went to IHOP and I drank 3 cups of milk and I was really, really thirsty and the next day I went to the doctor and I got diabetical."
Diabetical. Bwahahahaha! He just cracks me up. And for the record, I had no idea he remembered the events that led up to his diagnosis. He surprises me every day.
He had a good 5 year check up, despite freaking the freak out over the TB test. For a kid who gets poked a lot, he sure doesn't like them at the doctor's office! He is still my strong, healthy boy. He's in the 97th percentile for both height AND weight, 53 lbs. and 3 ft. 10 inches tall.
