My name is Shelly. I have a 12 year old son that was diagnosed with T1 in January of this year. We're still adjusting to life with diabetes, but I couldn't be more proud of my son for handling it so maturly and responsibly! We do have some ups and downs, but I think that's pretty much par for the course.
His Endocrinologist has said that since Quinton has adjusted so well and quickly to life with Diabetes, she's considering Ok'ing him for the pump in early July. That's only 6 months after diagnosis! He's very excited about the pump and just wants to get it!
I'm glad I've found this site. It looks like a great place to come to for questions/answers. I'm going to have Quinton sign up as well. Perhaps having a community of other people who know what he's going through will make him feel a little more at ease.
Thanks for having us!
