And a…..

(For Kerri – Five GOOOOOOOOOOLD RIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGSSSS)

Today, I have recieved one Flash meter with 15 strips, one Precision Xtra meter with 300 strips (three hundred! THREE hundred! Amazing), 100 One Touch strips and 50 BD strips. No one wanted me to give their names, but you know who you are and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I have recieved so many offers of help that I find myself getting all teary-eyed about it. I can’t even find the words to say thank you, to express how grateful I am, how humbled I feel by this outpouring of support (and test strips). It’s overwhelming.

If any of you are ever in western Massachusetts, let me know. I’ll make you dinner. And cheesecake. There will be cheesecake. The insulin’s on me.

    I bet eleven piper’s piping are still cheaper than a year’s worth of diabetes supplies. 😉

    I’m certain I’ve got meters that I don’t use (and probably strips for them too). I’d be more than happy to send them your way if you’d like (though I’d have to check if the strips are still good).Just let me know…

    Kevin,Thanks for the offer. We’re set for now. If you really want to get rid of some of your extra meters, the Children With Diabetes website has a foundation that takes donations of meters and non-expired strips. You can check out their website and email them about it.

    Thanks Julia, I’ll look into that. I haven’t cleaned out my diabetes supply closet in quite some time… I’m afraid what I’ll even find in there.
