It's a bargain . . . 2 posts for the price of 1
Yea for us!! We had our 1st good day of numbers since Nate's dx. We are almost 5 months into this and it has taken us that long to get 1 solid day of of 100's. Nate started out the day at 245 (not so good) but we have started giving him his AM shot at least 15 minutes before he eats and that seems to really help. The rest of the day looked like this:
11a - 132
3p - 191
7p - 160
Ok, those might not look that great to you but I seriously don't think we have had a day where he doesn't go high or low or both! So, yea for me, yea for us and yea for Nate!!
This week Nate is wearing the OmniPod for a trial run before we make our final pump decision. So far so good. He cried for about 3 minutes when we put it on and kept saying "stuck! stuck! stuck!". But, once I put his shirt on he forgot all about it. Here are some pics of Nate wearing the OmniPod -
I am hoping to hear back from the Ping rep tomorrow but plan on meeting with both next week at our Pump It Up class at Children's Dallas.
Those numbers are GREAT!! We have been doing this for almost 6 years.. and some day's we never reach good #'s. Don't give up on that.
Depending on Mattie's #'s we as well wait to eat. I will give her insulin for high and the food that she is going to eat, and we make her wait.... it is a bit hard at school, but we just adjust the time she tests and then were off to eat. We also ALWAYS test 30 min before any meal, that way I have plenty of time to give the insulin.
The OmniPod looks so big on him.. he is so brave and flippin cute.. his little bum. Has he been tugging at it? How well did it do in water? I know lots of ?'s... but, what is a Pump it up class?
Thanks so much!
Nate did so well with the OmniPod - he didn't pull or tug at it and I think if we put it on his bum he won't even know it's there.
The Pump It Up class is pump training at Children's Hospital Dallas. All 3 pump reps will be there to give us the info on each pump.
I think we've already made up our minds but we will see . . .
Ok so I actually CRIED the first day Syd stayed under 200 all day!!! It was so awesome! I think your numbers are great btw!! Nate looks so stinken cute wearing the pod! You guys will LOVE having a pump! I'm so excited for ya and can't wait to hear how your class goes!!
