Diabetes Dad: No One Wins if No One Plays……Where Are YOU?

I had the opportunity, recently, to be in Washington DC.  I love Washington DC and it is one of the most exciting places on earth.  So much happens there and whether you love or hate whoever is in office does not change the fact how much occurs on any given day.
