with you, the nurses should have given you something, even it wasn't
candy in your easter basket.
When I was teaching, I had a little girl in my class who was a
diabetic. Her parents were so excited that her teacher was diabetic
too. They knew I understood. And understand I did. On special days
when treats were dispersed, I ALWAYS had something for her. Sugar free

the joy on her face when she, ALONG with her teacher chomped on sugar
free gum together. Melted my heart.
