Strategizing with diabetes and life for half a century, I am proud to announce that I have been awarded a Bronze Medal and Certificate. Short of boasting, this honor confirms that I have been recognized for a remarkable achievement of a successful life with insulin-dependent diabetes. This fact, along with the life-saving and scientific development of oncoming facts concerning this disease, has inspired a prelude to another book. My brief biography may be found at www.MyDiabeticSoul.com. I would like to commend all diabetics and their families for coping with this disease. It certainly has been a challenge, but a blessed one.
…many diabetics learn from each other and about each other. If you are reading this blog, check out tuDiabetes. I am sure will familiarize yourself further with your disease. AK.
Thank goodness I did not receive any new books for Christmas. As an avid reader, I still have approximately 75 unread books to accomplish. A usual 3 – 5 at-a-time book reader, I relish the opportunity to continue. Happy reading to you! A. K. Buckroth.
Who is having what for Christmas Eve AND Christmas Day Dinners? In our house, we celebrate the Polish Wilia (the “w” is pronounced as a “v”) that consists of an odd number of courses – seven, nine or eleven. Christmas Day is prime rib (when affordable), easy on the carbohydrates, big on vegetables and fresh fruits. Shopping is not done until I get the shrimp! God bless America, always! A. K. Buckroth
An e-mail friend of mine, Karen, just had her third kidney transplant. Due to diabetes complications, this happened. It is one of the facts of life with diabetes. My kid-sister, Judy, awaits her third kidney. All this to stay alive. Judy has been on ‘the [kidney donor] list’ for four years now. I think because her blood type is O-, which rare in itself, donors are scarce.
