Posted by Dani Petrunich on April 25, 2013 - Comments (4) - Category: A Guest Blog

Jeff and Natalie KolokI’m Natalie.  I’m a mom of three kids, two with type 1 diabetes. As you know, parenting children with type 1 diabetes is a journey of long nights, lots of work, and seldom much support. There’s not much I can do about your long nights, but I hope our website and blogs offer you some support. I look forward to blogging with you.

Hey, I’m Jeff. Blogging about diabetes? Dunno. Original thought and complete sentences instead of grunts and “yups”? Uh-oh. Well, Nat says I have to, so here’s my foray into the diabetes blogosphere…with no GPS or compass.
