Tanya Paul replied to Acoustic Avenger's discussion 'OmniPod vs Animas Ping'
"My daughter is on the Omnipod also. We have been using it for a year. We have recently had a rash of pods "go bad". I talked to a supervisor and was told that there was a lot that had a technical glitch in them. They have since been…"

Tanya Paul replied to estpeters's discussion 'Is it too raunchy?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I kind of got a giggle out of it, but I don't think that I would put it on a T-shirt. It makes sense to those of us close to D, but just to see it out and about maybe not so much."

Tanya Paul replied to carb101's discussion 'What to expect this summer' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Can't help much because this is our first summer with D. But...based on Becky's recent activity level, I would say less insulin unless the ice cream truck comes by. LOL"

Tanya Paul replied to jakesmom427's discussion 'Intro and question about Omnipod' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My daughter is 9 so she isn't a little tyke like yours. She was diagnosed on 09/09/09. She has been pumping since 02/25/10 and refused to get anything but the Omnipod. She is like your husband. She didn't want to be "attached".…"

Tanya Paul replied to Sylvie's discussion 'Intro + Type 1 & personality question' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My daughter, Becky, was diagnosed on 09/09/09 and started using her Omnipod on 02/25/10. Before the diagnosis, she was quiet. She did what she was supposed to do, when she was supposed to. Her kindergarten teacher described her as…"

Tanya Paul replied to carb101's discussion 'Non-D Camp Safety' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Because they want to be there, I would say that any amount of pushing you may have to do will be worth it to the girls. My husband and I have made a pledge to Becky that we will do everything within our power to see that she doesn't miss out on…"

Tanya Paul replied to JulieJ's discussion 'How often does the school nurse call you during the day?' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I don't believe that I have gotten a call from Becky's nurse in over two months. She attended Becky's pump start training and has made herself very knowledgable about what needs to be done. There are two other children in the school…"

Tanya Paul replied to Ali's discussion 'Carbs and cold/allergy medications' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My daughter started her Omnipod (or Pete as we call him at our house) on February 25th. When I called Insulet about the number of pod failures and the movement, I was told that a bit of tape across the end with the canula will help. It is made so…"

Tanya Paul replied to Maria Moyer's discussion 'Questions to ask schools...' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"Be sure to ask if they already have a plan. When Becky was diagnosed in 09/2009, we left the hospital and went straight to school. There were already two children there with diabetes. She had a routine down. We talked about what would be taking…"

Tanya Paul replied to Carl Kanzabedian's discussion 'Fingers & Toes...' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"We recently started checking Becky's on her arm. There is a clear cap for the lancet that has to be used. Her fingers were looking like pin cushions so this was somewhere new. It does seem to bleed a bit after the poke, but just think of the…"

Tanya Paul replied to matilda's discussion 'new to this' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"My daughter was diagnosed on 09/09/09. She turned 9 in December. She is the strongest and bravest person I know. She wasn't in the ICU when diagnosed because we caught it so early. My husband saw a commercial and recognized the signs in my…"

Tanya Paul replied to Pam Dunn's discussion 'Our "first" Christmas' in the group parents of kids with Type 1
"I won't be much help to you. My daughter was diagnosed 09/09/09. We have been doing this less than you. I do want to share my husband's philosophy. You do the best you can. You are the parent. My problem has been the same as yours, then I…"
