It's been too long since I've posted, and I have the most wonderful News. Josh has been on the pump since Thanksgiving and it really has been a life saver. He's adjusting just fine, and being such an active little guy, has had to change his pump out a couple times for knocking the site about, but his BS are more stable now in the middle of the afternoon, and they are lower than they have been in the morning. I can keep track better of when and how much I gave him his insulin....Just amazing! Our family has been busy with the Holidays and we are now getting ready for a Great New Year!!
My husband at first thought, OK I've been taking shots for more than 20yrs....There's no difference.....He sees how stable Josh's BS have been, and that all I do is push a few buttons and Josh is all set....Now I think he's a little jealous, and he looked at me and tilted his head said..."You really do enjoy having the pump much better!", and I told my husband "When it's your turn, you'll understand!" Hopefully that will be sometime this next year!

I promise I'll be posting more now that Life has settled back down!!
Wishing you all a Great New Year!

It was nice reading how the pump is going for you. We are trying to get my 3 year old on one now. Sometimes I wonder if it's the right thing, but then I read things like this and it lets me know that everything will be OK

Looking forward to lots more posts :-).

Kudos to you for being an awesome proactive mom. The pump transformed my son's life. It's not a panacea, it's not the cure for diabetes, it has problems, but it works so well when you put in the effort.

Thanks for today's smile!

Wonderful, Christine. I'm so happy to read that you and Josh have made the leap to the pump.

As Ellen says, it's not a cure. But it's a darn sight better than shots!

I look forward to reading more posts in 2006.

Happy New Year!
