Hello lovely ladies,
Well, when you read this I will probably be on a flight to the Netherlands. I'm writing this on Thursday and I will schedule this, and will try to link with Annie at A Stitch In Time from my mobile. I hope that works out.
I got a message from my sister that my mum had had a fall. She is in hospital, but hasn't broken anything. She got a bit of a shock and is breathless. They are keeping her in hospital until her breathing stabilizes and she's had some physiotherapy to get out of bed again. Mum is 97 so I'm not taking any chances. I have booked a flight and will be on my way, God willing, when you read this. The fall happened hours before my sister, who is visiting, was due to fly back to England. Needless to say, she has canceled her flight.
Banting and his assistant, Charles Best, worked together in a small lab to test the theory with street dogs. Banting formed a special bond with one of his test dogs and gave her a name: Marjorie. After Marjorie responded well to insulin treatments, the treatments went on to be used for humans with diabetes--and the results were deemed practically miraculous.
