Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right & forget the ones who don't! Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance--take it. If it changes your life--let it. Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.---Author Unknown

This is Lainey's Grandpa Heath. The two of them have a special connection---the connection being diabetes. Although Grandpa has type 2 diabetes, he still has to check his sugar and give himself insulin shots like Lainey does. He knows, better than I do, how Lainey feels.
Before Lainey had her insulin pump, we were at Grandpa's house (a 1/2 hour away from our home) and realized we were out of syringes. "Hey Dad?" Dustin asks, "Can we borrow one of your syringes for Lainey?" There is even a 'diabetic cupboard' at his house stocked with necessities for treating low blood sugars. We can usually find cheese sticks at Grandpa's house too, courtesy of Grandma of course.
