Re: [IP] Diabetes support group meeting ideas?



Please send the number for this Dr.  does he seem good with kids?  The Dr.
we just went to wasn't into tight control, amongst other things as I
indicated on the mailing list.  I really don't want to have to go through
many doctors to find the right one, besides the fact that Fargo is 8-9 hours
from our house.  That really doesn't matter, as long as it is what is best
for Taylor.
