BitchinDietitian replied to EVIESMOM's discussion 'Looking for the a pump for my 3 yr old.' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"The applicator is physically huge -- there's a needle that you manually push down and then retract leaving the sensor in (the sensor is the size of a horse hair). It's not as fast as the Omnipod quick insertion, so may be more painful for…"

aimeeh2oski replied to EVIESMOM's discussion 'Looking for the a pump for my 3 yr old.' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"When you say the applicator is frightening, do you mean the physical appearance of it or the actual insertion? Liz is fine now with the pod cannula insertion - we don't even have to use EMLA cream anymore, but I wonder about the CGM sensor…"

Welcome to TuDiabetes Eviesmon!

Welcome. Sorry you needed to find all of us.
Looks like we have a few things in common!
My oldest T1 daughter (she is 11) goes by Evie, her full name is Genevieve, but that is a mouth full. It looks like we also a a dx anniversary in common. My middle daughter Lilly was dx'd november 26, 2009. My kiddos were both a little older than yours at diagnosis though. this is a great place to find support and get a different perspective on things. Having a type 1 kiddo is tough, but they tend to turn into pretty great people. Hang in there, i know things are probably still pretty raw and rough! Drop me a note if you need. I am pretty busy and dont make on the boards as often anymore, but i will answer private posts.

Welcome to the family! On this forum you will learn so much. Most of all you will learn that you are not alone. Everyone here is supportive and will provide answers to your questions. Search the site for answers. Read the discussions and blogs for information. There are videos to help you understand diabetes and its treatment. Most of all there is family to talk to and even to vent to, if needed. Welcome home.
