VERY cool!

And, I know I was exposed to RSV, maybe a yr before dx. Amid a slew of other evil viral bugs, respiratory, and digestive from my kids, the 7 yrs pre-dx.

One of the questions they asked me in ER was if I had recently had any viruses because that can kick off diabetes - my endo said the same thing later when he opined I hadn't necessarily had diabetes for a long time before dx.
