I was helping at the church for "harvest festival", we set up to play games & give candy, coloring books & all different kinds of things, I seen this adorable little boy ask his mom if he could eat this candy. she had an Iphone & looked up the candy & told him he'd have to take so much miligrams of insulin to eat that. I asked her if he's type 1 & she said yes, he just found out, he was around 4 years old, my heart broke, but He understood, he knew enough to ask first, I told her, it sounds like she's doing an excellent job for him to ask & not to sneak all this halloween candy. she said she's so sad, but I told her, at least this isn't cancer, we can test & know where we're at & know what to do about it. also he'll have opportunity for the new things, the pump ect. there is hope for a diabetic, even a very young one.
