Hey Kimber - thanks for the friends invite! I hope you haven't been waiting long for me to respond - in the summer time - I'm sort of bad at getting onto the PC (summer's are so short here in Canada - gotta make the most of it).
Are you thinking of putting your child on the insulin pump? I think it's an excellent choice for children - wish I'd had one as a child - but back in the 60's when I got diagnosed - that was still a pipe dream in some engineers mind - but now we have so many choices.
Hey Kimber...everyone I've met who's on the pump has nothing but good to say about it....it makes life easier....especially for those who are very active....such as a child/teen. It also reduces the amount of insulin intake. Once you get over the techno jitters you'll be just fine.
