Grateful Project: Day 9

I know I am behind, but I will continue to forge ahead!
I am SO grateful for technology. To be more specific, I am glad to have seen medical advances change the way I live. I saw a clip today of an artificial pancreas that runs off of a smart phone. Amazing link I was diagnosed with type I diabetes 23 years ago.
When I found out, I needed injections twice a day, and mixing insulins was the latest tech available. Now I have a pump and a continuous glucose monitor available to me, and I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it is. I have hope that I will see a cure for type I diabetes in my lifetime, and just knowing how far R&D has come makes me eager to witness the future!
