puffy999: Neondistraction: That is indeed good news.  When I was in 2nd grade there was a kid in my class that had CF.  We weren't really friends but I liked him well enough, especially after we were at a pizza party and he let me have the cheese he picked off his pizza because he couldn't eat it.  He didn't make it to 3rd grade.

The kid who introduced me to childhood diabetes and the pitfalls thereof went on to stop a school shooting years after we lost contact. Talk about the weirdest thing.

Great, now all the kids are going to want childhood diabetes.
