We're in the process of cleaning out a house my grandparents had built in 1956. My parents moved there in 1990. My daughter was born in 2001 and diagnosed with diabetes in 2002. We've all spent plenty of time in this family home.
This lancet was at the bottom of a hall closet, under a variety of other items, surrounded by a few years of dust.
Diabetes is as much a part of our family's historical fabric as my grandfather's tool box, which was next to it on the floor of this closet.
