I thank the "creators" of Insulin everyday! If it wasn't for them I wouldn't be here. I so miss my Pigs are Precious T Shirt from when I was 10 and first put on Pig Insulin. They were VERY precious and they saved my life. Today with all the new technology, I am on the Insulin Pump. Thank You forefathers of Insulin's creation to save all Diabetics!!
