This year in review of Josh's first year with his Insulin pump is over due, and I'd have to say, through the bad days even, the pump has made life so much easier. Just some quick updates. Within the last couple of months he's gotten so use to knowing his numbers, that when he knows his BS is 246, he knows he needs .5 unit of insulin, or when he's around 100, he needs a snack. As a mother watching over and taking care of a Type 1 Diabetic, this just amazes me. He's doing better with feeling when he's low, but he can be around 300, and not even feel it, but his A1C continue to be good around 7, so I couldn't be happier. I have a few more posts about issues at school, and some decisions I need to make, either I need to have him change schools, or to homeschool him for a couple of years, until he can take care of himself, but still under my supervision. I've had some issues with the school, that I'm hoping have been solved, and we can start the rest of the school year doing better. Long story, but I think things will get better I hope.

He's 6 now, he'll be 7 in July. He was DX with Type 1 Diabetes 3 1/2 years ago. Josh has been on the insulin pump a little over a year.
