By way of explanation, the first three photos are taken in my hospital room when I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 11. You can see I'm still in the hospital bed, hooked up to IVs. The last photo is from diabetes camp!
My good friend Margarget R. came to keep me company while I was in the hospital! She was so entertaining and helped me keep my mind off of all the craziness going on! She was such a good friend! Also, I'm pretty sure that meal above was the first full meal they let me eat in the hospital. Mmmmm turkey sandwich!
A close up of Margaret and me, my teddy bear, and the infamous envelope (blanket)! Also, notice the library book all about diabetes on top of my bed.
Someone thought it'd be funny to put my teddy bear in the baby crib (infant cage) that was in the hospital room with me. Not funny!
Me and Rich Humphreys (the director of Camp Ho Mita Koda). It was the 4th of July, and Rich was decked out from head to toe in American Flag-wear. Yes, his pants were the stars & stripes as well. I have yet to meet anyone else who can pull off the bandanna look like he can!
So there you go, peeps. A little photographic insight into a few diabetes moments in my life. Enjoy!
