So sad. How old was he?

Rest In Peace.
When I die you motherfuckers better go deeper than 3 pages worth of bad jokes and puns.
I won't tell people you are died. Speculation is good for 8+ pages.
His title was a joke, back in the early days of this place he wrote on sports and posted a lot of his stuff. He was a good guy. I'm sad I wasn't around to offer some good thoughts to him. I hope his family finds comfort.
Diabetes is awful, just brings havoc on everything. We all need to stay on top of our health
I'm heavier than I oughta be, but I don't do sodas, cookies/cakes/sweets and watch my carb intake like a hawk. I also drink tons of water. I'll be 60 in August and still don't have it. That could change tomorrow, and I know it. Nobody in my family in at least a generation has had any cancer. We just don't get it. But the beetus? Oh yeah, we get that.
Dammit, sad to lose him. Too soon, way too soon.
My aunt is type 1 and she's lost half of one foot and 4 toes from the other. You have my emphathy KC. That's a shit hand to draw.
This is a blister that turned on me and started all of this. The blister was the size of a pencil eraser. It got ugly and eventually turned into my osteomyelitis
After my surgery where they removed my knuckle bone they - my surgeon and the infectious disease guy - didn't think it would heal. The PA told me she'd only seen one worse than mine that healed. They were wanting more surgery which would have meant resection - most likely my two small toes and a slice of my foot. Then i'd have been left with an even bigger wound to heal. Besides the bone they also removed the sore. She had to take skin and stretch it from all over to close the side of my foot. I was on an IV for eight weeks and asked them to let it heal. Luckily for me it did. When I went into my surgery I knew if they had to they would take what they needed to. I didn't want that because I know once they start taking it gets easier for it to happen again. Thankfully I dodged the bullet this time. Three ulcers in eight years isn't encouraging though. I have to worry about every time I whack my foot or step on something.
Now she can tell people that she's seen two people heal that she didn't think they would. This is all healed up. My little toe is boneless and it's a bit weird the way it flops around but otherwise it's okay.
My sweet momma passed away a month ago primarily from heart disease from type 1 that she had for 42 years. She was 80 and had always taken very good care of herself. Was never overweight, never smoked or drank, and always kept her blood sugar under control. The disease had made the veins around her heart so small that some were too small for stents. The disease does bad things to the heart. She went from working in her yard all weekend to an overall heart function of 30 percent after one heart attack. She told me before she died that this was the end stages of type 1. I've been tested for diabetes all of my life and luckily I don't have type 1 but am at risk for type 2 like everyone else getting old.
