Hi! I am so excited for this as well. Ethan is our son and is 7. he was diagnosed when he was 5. We have had lots of things happen since then. Start of school, sports and just everday living. something that made life a little easier for us were, we looked and looked for an easy, organized way to carry all of the information and supplies. After we searched for months and tried so many things, the easiest thing we already had. It is a case from best buy. It is made to hold a psp. The spot where the system is suppose to go holds his novolog jr pen and glucagon, and ink pen. The top is where we store all of the gathered carb info and calorie king book. the other sections hold ketone sticks, a ketone moniter, strips for that, a small calculator, bg tester and strips and and a small 15g juice box. also we carry small writing frosting tubes with us in it , too. We also keep one in my purse, dads pockets,and his pocket.
This is a very difficult thing, but you get through it. Lots of hugs and kisses. One thing we did for Ethan was we developed a sticker chart for his shots. We gave 2 stickers for the scarey spot (tummy, butt, and leg) after so many stickers he got to pick a prize from the store next door to us, or rent a movie of his choice. It was not long and he was an old pro. He chose his spots and liked the independence that came with that.
I still am learning new thing about his body and diabetes. We can just keep looking for the cure! hope all is well with your little angel.
