Re: [IP] hospital visit

I hear than but now that i work at the hospital that this happened i now get
the chance to talk to all newly diagnosed diabetics and there family, i like
this alot.. and so far the best one has been one of my teachers that just
had a stroke and diagnosed with type 1 at the same time.. now after the
years of teaching one of his students gets to return the favor..
