Congratulatons Ann Marie - Four weeks seems like a lifetime when you go back and thing about what you have been thu since diagnosis.
My son is coming up to the one year mark - April 11. Its the one anniversary that you can't celebrate but it is a date you never forget.
I remember all the events, cold and flu, weekend camping trip (my son is 14), and just trying to get people to undestand its not the same as Type II.
Then when you feel you have the shots under control and things are proceeding in less than chaos you choose to switch to pumps which have their own learning curves. So you trade comfort for more uncertainly with the end result being better control if done right.
You will make mistakes - I made one today even though I have been to multiple classes, met with other T1 parents etc. Its going to happen. Every parent will tell you that.
Last week my son forgot his pump in the bathroom and went to school, one time he left it on the bus. We made it thru fine.
Today, he was to adjust his nighttime basal rate to .90 units per hour and he actually made it 9.0 units per hour. He dropped but we caught it because he knew what low felt like.
So we adjusted the pump so it will not allow any basal rate to go over 1.0 units per hour. I know this might all sound greek to you now but it won't be long until it does not. lol.
Your doing the right things and you have support and that is everything.
ONe note: After awile you will be so entwined with diabetes talk that you will be having a casual conversation with a family member or friend and you will mention how your child was a certain number and you might mention high or low - you will see a glassy look in their eyes and then you will realize they have no idea what the numbers mean. Give them a break and explain. LOL
