Phil's mom replied to Jackson's Mom's discussion 'New to Insulin Pump - One Touch Ping - any advice on infusion sets or dealing with extreme weather conditions' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My son is 4 and is on the ping pump. We use the 6mm straight all in one insets. At first he would pull out the sites so we started to use I.V. prep and then I.V. 3000 on top of the site. That seems to really help."

Earth 2

While watching reruns of an early 90s tv show called 'Earth 2' I was shocked by how many similarities I found in the main character, a mother fighting to find a cure for her son's illness, and myself. On the series there is a group of 200 or so kids that are struck by a disease called "the syndrome." They have to wear electronic devices and carry them around with them where ever they go. These devices are their live support, without them they will die.So why is my story so similar? Well, My son…See More

kicking ass and having fun???

Posted on April 24, 2010 at 9:00pm 14 Comments

So, I have been reading a lot of mom's stories about their diabetic children, about their diagnoses, struggles, heartaches and joys. Reading these have brought up a lot of memories, memories that I know I will never forget, but sometimes wish I could.



Before Phil(18 months old) was diagnosed he had been having symptoms for a while. He was constantly thirsty and peeing though his diapers at least 4 times a day. I talked to my mom, my sisters and a few dads and everyone said the same… Continue

Thank you for the friend request! I'll gladly take it! I mean to say on your blog that I'm a Type 1 (and have been for 35 years now) My oldesy (who is now 21) is a Type 1 too but she took it much older like me than Phil She took it at 11 and I took it at 10. I didn't want her to get diabetes so unlike you I kinda shut down when I saw it happening to her. Anyway she 21 now with 3 kids ranging from 3 1/2 to 3 months!
