My New Gadgets

I wish I could say my new gadget was craft related. Or computer related. In a way, it is computer related as it must have a microcomputer in it to do what it does. 

Yep, it's a glucose meter or glucometer. I discovered this week that I am a diabetic. It is bringing big changes to the lifestyle including these two gadgets. Yes, that is two gadgets.

The other gadget is the lancing gadget. Not so much fun. Mostly because I have not discovered how to get a decent blood sample on the first try. Can we say human pin-cushion?

So we have some diet changes going on here along with twice daily finger-sticking and testing.

I'm sure there are many more gadgets I'd rather have than these two!

The Henry Ford

Did I mention that one of my sisters works at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan? If you have to ask what The Henry Ford is, well, go back to reading the comic section, you probably won't be interested in this. The museum (there's a big hint) will have an important American Document on exhibit on June 20th.  Visit my sister's blog here for more information. And I hear its free.
