Reasons we love the pump..
1 shot every 3 days..
this is the top reason... Madi was getting to the point where she would cry if she had to get a shot within an hour of eachother.. but she was hungry, and even if she wanted an apple, she needed another shot.
One of the best things about having a pump is that you are not relying on long acting insulin that peaks and then fades out.. You have s much better control of the amount of insulin they get every minute and that helps their body to be function better. Craig gets different amounts of insulin all day because of how his body works. He has MUCH better numbers!
by that I mean when we are at a restaurant, I dont have to take Madi to the bathroom to give her a shot.. I can just use a remote to give her insulin and no one would ever know what was happening. She would want to go to the bathroom for her shots so no one would see. Craig didnt care, he would get a shot anywhere, but sometimes I worried if people would be grosed out by it.. You never really know. Also, when he is out with his friends he doesnt have to draw up insulin and worry about carrying syringes ect.
Its even cute!
Theres nothing cute about syringes...LOL, but Madi loves wearing all different colors and patterns of pump belts!!!
Pumping has its ups and downs, but its such a blessing. It really makes life easier for my kiddos and when they already have to deal with ALL type 1 is, Im thankful they can have something that makes it easier!
