I'm orange

Scott Benner

I was only able to attend a few hours of the Children With Diabetes Focus on Technology conference today but it was so worth the trip for three main reasons.

 

1. I met some wonderful people in the flesh that I only knew virtually prior to today, which was amazing!

2. I heard some great information from the speakers about future technology, management ideas and more.

3. I found out that I'm orange. 

 

I stepped outside during the morning break to watch the sudden driving snowstorm that appeared. A few moments after I got outside a boy came through the door. He looked to be about ten and I said hello when he appeared next to me.

Boy: Wow, look how hard it's snowing.

Me: I know it's crazy. 

Boy: Are you green or orange?

Me: It took me a moment to understand and then I said, "orange"

Boy: Is your son or daughter type I?

Me: My daughter...

Boy: Me too... since I was two.

Me: My daughter was diagnosed when she was two.

Boy: Cool!

 

He told me about his pump and I told him about Arden's, then we said goodbye. If you get the opportunity to attend a gathering like CWD I suggest that you take it, because in a word, it's "cool".
