yeah,
I had the same thought, he had all the money necessary to pay for the best possible technology to win that fight a 2nd time,

Doc says on Oct 6, we will win this again:

and poof! on the 15th, it is game over.

Diabetes works much the same, you can fight it for a while, but it always wins.....
almost to the same dates: My Wife: was diagnosed in 2009 and passed Jan 2017

he did a lot of good in this world, I will give him that.... and pray for his family and friends

I know all about diabetes. I added it to my large and growing collection of age-related diseases about two years ago.
