In Germany, people wish each other a "Guten Rutsch" (or a "good slide") into the new year. Here's a little visual that might help with that expression ;)
Today, from the bottom of my diabetic heart — and my family's — wishing you all a great slide into 2010.

I did not get around to compiling a year-in-review post for the field of diabetes as I had hoped (other than my annual roundup of what happened here). I'm a little too swamped with family responsibilities, and frankly, a little burnt out. But here are a few end-of-year roundup posts that I recommend:
* A Revolution is Born: An Interview with ePatient Dave - not a roundup per se, but an interview that gives you a great sense of how patients' use of the Web to connect is changing the world, year by year.
I hope to return to my usual strenuous blogging schedule with verve in early 2010.
Enjoy your time off, Dear Friends and Readers, and I will "see you on the other side": bright and early on Monday, Jan. 4.
