...my sugar that day was 1600...today its 150...


Outside my house I did lay,

In a diabetic coma they did say,

Rufuz there to protect his dad,

Memories of him do make me sad…

 

In the coma for 8 days,

In the hospital for 12,

Later that year my gall bladder did die,

That was a bad year for me, no lie…

 

But look at me now,

Still do like my chow,

Driving again, thought I would never,

Working daily, enjoy to drive forever…J
