Life with diabetes

Yesterday Skowt had her latest checkup at Children's Hospital to monitor her diabetes. It's been 8 months now. Wow! She is doing fine and her numbers look good. We'll go back in another 3 months. Every 3 months until she is 18.

So, I got to thinking and thought I'd do a list of famous people with diabetes. They've been telling her from the beginning not to let it stop her and she can still be anything she wants to be. As I started looking for people to list, I realized there were way more than I thought.

Here are some of the more recognizable ones I came across:

What a great list! Good thinking, MOM! :-) At least she can see that diabetes is not the worst thing in the world and she's not the only one who has to deal.
