    William Rounds

    William Rounds was born and diagnosed in 1923, and attended the Joslin Medalist meet-up in 2009. He reached his 86'th anniversary with T1 at the end of that year. I assume he is still alive. If so, he will reach his 88'th anniversary this year.

    I will be T1 for only 66 years in mid Sept, this year. William makes me feel like a youngster, by comparison. He is my hero!!

    Richard, I think you are an inspiration to everyone who frequents this group. We all have stories to tell and problems we have had to overcome but nothing can compare what you have gone through.

    Hello Dad, thanks for the kind words! How is Jeremy's Dexcom working out? It is sometimes difficult to get good agreement between the Dexcom and the fingersticks. If there is difficulty I suggest you join the following website: http:www.tudiabetes.com After joining click on Groups and join the Dexcpm Users Group. it has over 600 members and the experienced members there are very good at helping and giving hints that are not mentioned in the Dexcom manual.

    I have often looked at the site but have not joined the group. I will do that tonight. BTW, Jeremy loves his Dexcom. His fingersticks are not that too far off what the Dex will indicate. We have to remind him constantly to enter his BG. He tends to just overlook it when it says "enter BG".
