    So, World Diabetes Day turned out to be quite an awesome day.  My celebration activities included wearing blue, taking part in a town hall style meeting at hosted by the good folks at the ADA office in Indianapolis, hanging out with Indy Car driver Charlie Kimball, and participating in the Big Blue Test with several folks who attended the ADA event.   Here are a few pictures.

  • Happy World Diabetes Day!

    I’d like to take a moment to wish a Happy World Diabetes Day to everyone in the Diabetic Community, both online and offline. My plans for WDD haven’t worked out as I had hoped, but I did at least do the Big Blue Test this afternoon.  My blood glucose numbers were 131 mg/dl before I walked around the hospital, and 136 mg/dl after I walked around the hospital. (No, I’m not the patient this time.  That’s a long, sad story for another post.) Anyway, I hope everyone has had a wonderful day. Go D Blue!

I’d been thinking about what do for Diabetes Awareness Month and World Diabetes Day for some time, and after reading Kelly Kunik’s blog post on Thursday, I got to thinking about ways to raise awareness and spread the Blue.  And it hit me, Why not turn My Diabetic Heart blue for the entire month of November? Now, I realize that it’s only the middle of October, and November won’t be here for a couple of weeks.  So, why am I making this change now?  Well, it’s simple. …
