Curious and sad. Curious : sad ratio approx 3:1.
Think a lot about where assorted persons fit. Very interesting hear two talks re Type 1 happen s l o w l y. (Or quite often slowly.) Certain Bubs symptoms at least 1 year before diagnosis. So unfair!

Parents actually said this sentence: You can’t read anymore until you go outside for at least an hour. Bubs outside, walk slow laps around house, knock door, Has it been an hour? Can I read yet? Visit phlebotomy tomorrow, find out—anything? Difficult believe but maybe true: could be as simple as “Yup, this kid needs a Hashipill, and then he will be energetic and cheerful again.”
