Hello Gail

Wow, I went through the same as you.  I was diagnosed at 10 and am now 39.  I 
know exactly what you mean.  I think your idea of having glucose tablets in 
something around her neck is a fantastic idea.  Thanks very much.  I will 
look for something that I can keep them in.  Thanks again.
