Subject: [IP] Update on The Twins
Sorry I have not keep in touch with the list, between health problems and
work, it has been chaos.
Since there was a few inquiries about the twin girls (Rosalie and Sophia), I
decided to give everyone an update.
Since the fire in June, it has been very difficult on the twins and their
mother. They lost everything and without insurance, insulin and pump
supplies were hard to come by. First, I would like to take this time to
thank everyone on this list for their prayers, kind words and especially
donations of pump supplies and insulin. No matter how small you thought
your donation may have been, it made a HUGE difference to these little
girls! I would also like to our a big thank you to Friends With Diabetes
and Rabbi Meisels. Members of this list were also so generous and offered
many well wishes. May everyone involved be blessed and healthy!!
Unfortunately, their mother fell while moving boxes to their new home in
August. She suffered a fractured ankle, collar bone and pelvis and had to
endure a hospital stay. The twins stayed with myself and my fiancee for four
weeks. They taught my fiancee the ins and outs of diabetes from a seven
year old's persepctive....times two :)
They were reunited with their mother two weeks ago and seem to be settling
in. They come to visit us on Tuesdays and Fridays after school while their
mother receives therapy for her fractures. They are excelling in school.
They are still on the MM 508 pumps and are doing great. The donations
helped and contributed to them still being able to use their pumps.
So, it looks like things are improving for them slowly. I still look here
and there for extra supplies, Humalog and Novolog for them. If I can help
one or two children, then it was worth it.
And for the record, since there was a question about it....I am a Veterinary
Endocrinologist. I am also a CDE and pump trainer on a volunteer basis for
low income children. AND don't let the first name fool you...I'm actually a
female, not a male :)
Thanks for everyone's help.
