Day 143

Well today we had out meeting with a pump specialist.. If you have followed along the past mpoth you will know that Madi initially wanted adn was asking for apump..Then Craig decided he was interested.

Well today we were given a lot of information...and the kids used and infusion set to see what it felt like.

After that, Madi decided she did NOT want a pump ever and Craig cant get his fast enough..he wants it now.

After teh meeting I really had mixed emotions.  It seemed exciting...but completely overwhelming..
When you first get eh pump, you have to do middle of the night check for a t least a month..Thats 2 am people!! for at "least" a month....
You can have bas sites and a bad canulus or a kinked one...

I dont know..but then youhave to choose what pump you want..

That seems like a huge responsibility,

what if they dont like the one we get?

What if its lame?

What if the kids break it?

What if they get it and change their mind?

Will insurance cover all of the expensive supplies?

questions and more questions...

Well, Madi like I said has decided she doesn't want one now, so we are completely fine with that..Its her body and if she wants to wait, then thats fine. 

BY the way, the lump on his arm from like 2 months ago (which we were told was just inflammation) is still there...scar tissue?
Ugh diabetes stinks!

Some humor for the day..

I asked Craig, "so how is life?"
Craig : "its diabetis!"

Love this kid! He is awesome!!
