As a mother....I feel it's my right to brag, as all mothers should! :)
Last Sunday (10 days ago), Quinton transitioned to the pump. As you can imagine, I was worried sick! Last week was quite daunting with extremely unpredictable BG numbers. One minute his BG would be 410 and two hours later it would be 60!!! I was a nervous wreck.
Adjustment after adjustment has paid off! Quinton has had amazing blood sugars for the last 6 days and is smoothly transitioning into the pump club!
He's had to change his set three times since he started and he's done every single one of them by himself! I couldn't be more proud! This pump thing is the best thing that's happened to him since diagnosis. I just love that kid so much!
He was so funny....the Sunday he got the pump he begged me to take him out to dinner so he could eat a special meal without an injection. He plead with me saying "I haven't been able to eat anything without a shot for 8 months...c'mon mom". How could I resist that! So, off to Red Robin we went and he ordered whatever he wanted. A finger poke, a push of a button and voila, he was free to chow down. I guess it's the little things that make us happy these days! Way to go Q!!!!
