I am a mom (stay-at-home) with a young 4 year old son that was diagnosed when he was three. We are currently OmniPod pump users of about a month. We are finding it a bit difficult to manage high blood sugars after a site change and any input or advice would be helpful. Or even just notes from others who have been through the same things with their little ones is always nice to hear...some one or other parents that are in the same boat! We also have difficulty actually getting our son to cooperate for a site change as he can be quite strong-willed when he's made his mind up that he doesn't want to do something. Overall, diabetes sucks. But we are a very loving and smart family and have made the best out of the situation and our son knows that it's all a matter of us taking good care of him. We have other families that we have connected with in our area that are families living with diabetes and he's made some friends his age. It's important that he sees others that have to do the same things in life as he does. Because he is most certainly not alone! (And neither are his father and I!)
