I just want to say to the world that we are grateful. For our son only having type 1 diabetes, and not, like the son of a friend of ours, something else so sinister that his life hangs in the balance.

That our son was born in this age and country. That we have a national health system.

And for so many things personally: each other. A fine son and daughter.

But mostly, today, that science and medicine know how to keep our son alive.
