and here we are. I just barely found my way here and hope to find it helpful/useful as we begin out next leg of our journey. Dylan, our oldest, was diagnosed last January and the past year has been dedicated to figuring it all out.
I finally figured out that "crazy" is our new normal and nothing is ever the way it should be.
Ive spent the past year getting angry and upset and crying and having all the issues that surround being a T1D mom that its consumed us to the point where I dont even remember what it was like not to test sugars or give injections.
We are using lantus/novolog pen injections and soooo looking forward to a change this month! After working hard to bring down a rediculously high A1C level at dx, we are now at 8.5 and slowly getting better. Our endo agreed to the pump and we are sooo excited to finally get on it!
We've raised enough money in the past few months to send our kiddo to Diabetes camp in California this summer and have become more active with JDRF and TOFUN over the past few months as well. I think we are finally to the point where we are ready to be active... to bring awareness... and to get involved with other families...
Which has brought me/us here!
Any advice about the pump? We have been looking into the various kinds... and we are leaning toward Animas Ping. Thoughts? Considerations? Im open to any advice!
