    Recently my 13 year old son experienced a hyperglycemic day. I made one of my many trips to school and once everything was under control I returned to work. Later that afternoon my son called to report in. The first thing out of his mouth was, "Mom - did you reprogram my machine?" I explained that I had reset the time on it. He said, "Thanks! Now when I insert a strip into my machine it greets me and says "Hi!" Just goes to prove that even when they're having a bad day these kids can still find something comical in the world of diabetes. Brightened up our day!
