It is the first Friday today. We went to Mass. I am going to try and remember to go on the first Friday for the next nine months and do a special novena for our family.
Today we also had some good news. Our third son Tom is an insulin dependent diabetic and he is going onto a waiting list to get an insulin pump. The diabetes educator that spoke with me about the posibility of Tom getting one of these has one himself and he says he wears his pancreas on his belt. An insulin pump means that Tom will receive his insulin more like a person that doesn't have diabetes. This will mean that we won't have to be as strict about eating at exactly the right times and the amount he will have to eat. He should get his pump around November. Between now and then we are also going to change his regime so that it is similar to the regime he will be on when he goes on the pump.
