Hi Natasha, Wow...where does the time go? Your family pics are great! About the Dex...I love it but we found out that Jillian had been "telling" us her numbers during the day based on the Dexcom and not her meter. There were a couple of days that she hadn't used her meter nearly the entire day....she was basing everything off of the dexcom. So we have given it a break for the past week (she doesn't like the two sites and the extra "thing" that she has to carry around). Have you had any issues with your son not testing with his meter because he has the dexcom? Take care and I look forward to hearing from you :) Leah
Hi. We are changing his sites every 48 hours. We are now using the contact Detach infusion sets. They are working so much better! We have seen an improvement in his blood sugars. Dylan and I are both on the Animas Ping.
Hi Natasha. My son is 4 and was diagnosed in August 2009. Did you go to Childrens in DC when diagnosed? How did you get such a nice A1C? We just started on the pump in February and we are still struggling. Any advice?
