Sorry to hear about Rory. I'm not a football fan but have watched a few games with hubby mostly with my eyes shut. emoticon
A lot of people don't realize how serious diabetes is especially type 1.

If you are a Falcons fan, you have probably seen The Great Falconi in the stands. His name was Rory Healy. Rory was also an actor.

He passed away on Monday, Aug 13. Complications from diabetes.

Rory was a type 1 diabetic. He was on dialysis for years, and had a double organ transplant in the 90s. After the organ transplant, Rory was able to live for many years...no longer a diabetic! He received a pancreas and a kidney.

I saw him in the hospital the day after the operation and he looked GREAT. When he was on the waiting list, I really feared he wouldn't survive the wait. He knew that the new organs wouldn't last forever, but he was able to have several years of 'normal' life.

He was a wonderful, caring, talented man.

I'll never watch a Falcon's game without thinking of him.

I haven't gone to six flags yet waiting for cooler weather. Been to white water a couple of times.

I so hope to go to Six Flags. It's been like 13 yrs. Lived out of state for 7 yrs,, moved back like 3 yrs. At the weight I am, I'm afraid if I'd be able to fit comfortably in a rollercoaster seat.

Height: 5'2

I keep pressing Escape but I'm still here

Hoping to take advantage of season pass daughter gave me for white water/six flags this summer especially white water. Went last week and I now fit into the inner tubes. Last time I went didn't fit at all. emoticon I enjoy getting in the little hooch and just walking laps around we try to go during the week instead of week ends. A little less crowded. Hope everyone is doing well.
