Go Team Elise!

It's hard to believe that almost three weeks have passed since Elise was diagnosed with diabetes. It seems we have lived a lifetime already since then. We've received such wonderful support from friends, but it's still hard not to feel isolated. I've discovered how important it is to surround yourself with people who can understand what you're going through.
That's why I am so excited (and a little jealous - Elise's schedule doesn't allow us to be there) that Fred is taking part in the Walk to Cure Diabetes this Saturday. Fred, and his team of 7 other walkers will be walking in Plano, Texas this Saturday, along with half a million walkers across the country. If you're so inclined, you can join them! Thanks to our generous friends, Fred has raised $1875 in less than two weeks. You guys are AMAZING!!! If you would like to help us find a cure, donate here!

I've kind of been following this on Twitter with Fred. This is sooo cool - and a great way to focus the feelings you've had about Diabetes. I can't wait to see you guys and hear all about the journey you've had in the last month. Dinner soon.
