This week I'm getting some Tweet or Feet help from a friend at ESPN, so I thought it would be fun to include a quick personal sports update. Benny played his first-ever baseball game on Tuesday.
Trying something new means figuring out the best way to incorporate diabetes care without taking Benny out of the game. Right now, we're taking the pump off for baseball (did the same for football, but left it on for soccer). BG was great, ran him just a bit on the high side (170 at inning #5), and all good overall.
Benny played catcher for two innings, got two singles, an RBI and came home for the winning run. I may never let him play again – how do you top that? Of course most of these kids aren't all that focused on the score, at 7 yrs old they just want to make sure they get ice cream after the game!
Thanks so much for helping me spread the word about type 1 diabetes through your RT's, mentions and shares of #TweetorFeet. This week's winner for doing that is @KTeasOnline. They receive a one hour massage at Massage Envy and a Twitter mention from Matthew Berry, ESPN's Senior Fantasy Analyst (340,000 followers). Big thank you to Matthew for his help (and, if you're one of his followers, for reading this far. Thanks for checking us out).
Here's what we linked to this week:
JDRF Countdown Magazine article about pregnancy and type 1
Hannah's Dream Team 2012 JDRF Walk video.
Tweet or Feet also got some media love in the Charlotte Observer Parent to Parent Column.
Remember, you can still sign up to walk with us on April 21st at the Charlotte JDRF Walk at Carowinds. Click here to join Benny's Brigade (or to donate). Hope to see you there!
