[IP] Diabetic acceptance

Here's a little twist to people telling diabetics what they can eat.  Jenna
(9) and her friend, Elizabeth (8), both attend the same church and school,
and have insulin pumps, and all their friends know now how the bolus routine
goes.  A mutual non-diabetic friend was eating dinner with her family one
evening, when dessert was served, she just eyed it, and told her mom, "Boy,
I'd sure have to bolus a lot for that!"  Her mom laughed, and wondered what
the odds of being 8 years old with 2 really good friends who have insulin
pumps are.  She'll be an adult who can accept diabetes.

Nancy Morgan, Jenna's mom
