Hey, thanks for popping by my blog! I appreciate your support. I hope your husband's Type 2 gets under control. I have a good friend who was able to control his with diet eventually and hopefully your husband will find the same. I know what you mean about the sodas. Mine used to be proud of his daily lunch of a burger, fries and 44 ounce Pepsi. :) But when he got his bladder cancer diagnosis the list of "suspects" included 1) smoking, 2) alcohol, 3) coffee, 4) sodas, and 5) spray paints. He had had years of exposure to #4 and about 6 months of intensive exposure to #5, but apparently that's enough when you have bad ventilation ... although it could definitely have been more down to the sodas. Now we don't keep sodas at home very much, he drinks about 1 every 5 years. He's gotten used to drinking iced tea, lemonade and water. If he can do that, anyone can! Best of luck to both of you and have a beautiful holiday.
