Hole-y Swim Fingers!

Hole-y diabetic swim fingers Batman!

Extended periods of time in the pool give everyone wrinkly fingers, but time after time I’m shocked by what happens to fingers that have been pricked hundreds and hundreds of times.

Normally they just have small marks, like polkadots, on their finger tips. But when the skin shrinks up and gets wrinkly they look like tiny little sponges!

The kids gets a kick out of it, for now.

These are Luke’s fingers, after 4 years of blood glucose checks. I wonder what they will look like in 10 more years. Does this ever go away?
