It was nearly a decade ago. But Haley Archambault remembers clearly how she felt when told she had diabetes.

“It was really scary,” says the 16-year-old Lewes-area resident. “Every 7-year-old would be scared.”

Haley’s mom, Amanda, had taken her to a pediatrician for treatment of what Amanda thought was a urinary tract infection. Haley had been drinking a lot of water and going to the bathroom frequently, and also had complained of headaches and that her stomach hurt.

“I told her that all she would need to do was pee in a cup, that they would give her an antibiotic and she would be good,” Amanda recalls. “But when they tested her urine, there were high levels of glucose. So they pricked her finger for blood, and when the nurse handed the glucometer to the doctor, he looked at me like, ‘OK, Mom, get ready.’”



Rehoboth has Central Park and Grove Park. But what other park was designated on a circa-1870s map, but was apparently later developed into housing lots instead?
