My 7 year old son plays on a travel baseball team. One of the other dads and I became pretty good friends. Last Thursday, he went in for gastric bypass surgery. He just passed away today. He and his wife had adopted two little boys. 7 and 4. Scary crap. My doctor has been on me for two years to do the same thing. Since discovering diabetes a month ago, I have lost 31 pounds. I think I will keep doing what I am doing. Keep his wife and kids in your prayers.
