Cool New Gizmo

Yesterday William had his quarterly checkup with Dr. A, our Pediatric Endocrinologist.  Despite being sick with bronchitis for about six weeks (which has finally passed, thankfully), his A1c was 7.5.  Not too shabby.

While we were there, Dr. A showed us a new blood glucose meter that is used with your iPhone or iTouch.  Really.  How cool is that?  Well, of course we had to have one, so Dr. A wrote us a script and we picked it up on our way home.

And here is William (aka Thunder Bear, aka Funny Bill) demonstrating his new iBGStar glucose meter.

So, I told you that story to tell you this story...

On October 21st, our family and friends will be participating in our third JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes.  You all already know why we're walking, and why JDRF's support of research is so important.  (If you don't know, check out some of the Diabetes links on the sidebar.)  So, please take a moment to go to William's JDRF Walk fundraising page and either join Team ThunderBear, or give whatever size donation you can.  Your support means the world to us.

Thank you!
