A few days ago I was talking with my friend Derek Paice. Derek and I have known each other for years, and seven years ago I profiled his success in dominating diabetes in an article for the “Diabetes Watch” website that is now on my site.
I am overwhelmed by your outpouring of sympathy upon the death of my wife Catherine from complications of diabetes on March 20. Nothing that I ever wrote generated so many responses as my tribute to her, “In Memoriam.”
You sent more than 70 comments to that article and even more emails directly to me. Several of you sent greeting cards and bouquets of flowers.
The question that my readers ask most often is, “How are you doing on Byetta now?” The last time I addressed this question was August 16 in “My Byetta Progress Report.”
At that time I had lost 68 pounds since starting on Byetta in March 2006. My A1C had dropped a bit from 6.8 to 6.4.
