Isn't that funny. Thanks for putting me in touch with Christian. I will let you know how I get on with him. I am delighted with the pump so far, but have an awful lot to learn.

I looked at Christian's page and he lives in a town about 30 miles from me. I will leave him a message too. When I was at the hospital last week the nurse told me a guy called Christian will be meeting me next week to set me up on my own pump and teach me how to use it. I think it might be him!!! I am going to check. Will let you know.

Wow it's so great to read that discussion and realize we are not alone! Thank you so much for pointing me there, you've helped me already! How old is your child with diabetes?

Actaully the Accu will be history in a few weeks, our insurance is forcing us to change to a cheap meter. Hopefully it will be accurate! Just wondering what Bolus meant re: diabetics...

Hi Marie,
Thanks for sending me to the Parents group, I joined. We live in Los Angeles County. My 11 year old son was dx'd just past his first birthday. I can't believe it's been 10 years. He's been on the minimed pump for about 3 years. Pre-puberty is wreaking havoc with his BGs, we are always struggling to get those a1c's down, but he is generally he is in good control. We are so proud of how he manages his life with diabetes, it doesn't stop him from anything. Looking forward to seeing you on the boards.

I'm really glad you liked it.
The circle was colored with blue paint.
and i sewed on different sizes of blue buttons with silver thread randomly around the circle.
Then i ironed on Swarovski blue crystals.
its very easy and fun to do!

Marie, I *love* your quilts. Congratulations on being president of your quilt guild next year. I'm sure you'll do fine. I wish I could join your guild, but it would be a little far to commute! :)

Actually, I was born in VA (Charlottsville), when my father was in the military. But we moved to San Francisco when I was 2 months old, so I don't remember it!

Take care, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
