"I agree with Aimee. When we first put our son on the pump I was thinking it should be great right away, but it took lots of adjustment time! Good luck with the pump!! We LOVE the pump in our house ...it took awhile to love it though :)"

"That is so awesome that he found something to use (hardball) as a concentration point for tight control. Took me 13 years and a baby to figure that much out. And congratulations to you and your husband. You must be doing a great job."

Hi Jolynn, thanks for adding me as a friend. We have a lot in common. My son is almost 7 and we live in Inuvik NWT and like you we are the only family in our town with a child with type 1...it's gets pretty lonely with no one to talk to who "understands" what we are dealing with. I find most people think it's just a matter of giving insulin and then you go about your daily life. I wish! As you know, it's alot more than that. We aren't at the pumping stage yet, but hope in a few years he will qualify for a pump. We are going to Edmonton on March 16 for our next endo appointment and more education. We just found out that the government is not going to pay for both myself and my husband to travel, so now we have to buy two tickets, one for one of us and for our 4 year old son. GRRR....anytime you want to chat, message me or find me on facebook. Take care and have a great weekend.
