Recently I signed Cara up for a free medic alert bracelet, it is a program through her school and I had to wait until she turned 4, for some reason. She was 3 years old when she started school and she had T1 so way could I not order her the bracelet then??? Whatever. So I order it on Nov 24th (her 4th birthday) and it is already here. I was so excited and thought that she would be too....I guess not! The only way that I can get her to wear it is if I make Kylie (Cara's older sister) tell her that she wants to wear the bracelet.
On another note I was watching Dr. Oz last night (I think a re-run) and it was about diabetes.....really it was about type 2 diabetes. There was no mention from the beginning of the show to half way threw the show about type 1 diabetes and the differences between type 1 and type2. I just could not even watch, I was waiting and waiting when the DOCTOR would explain to all the layman out there about type 1 and type 2, and actually as I sit here thinking about it he really never even used the term type 2 diabetes just diabetes..... a little general don't you think especially for a Doctor? I had to turn the channel when they (the Doc and a fitness guy) started to teach everyone how to revere and cure diabetes by eating healthier.... and we wonder why there is so many misconception when a DOCTOR can't even explain the differences between the two!!
