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.
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".
