Today is the BIG day...we go to Children's Hospital for the Pump Class to choose Kacey's pump. She's so excited and it's sent her blood sugars through the roof. I've done all my "homework" and now I just need to listen to the pump reps tell me all about each pump and make our final decision. Kacey is still saying she wants the Cozmo and I'm almost certain that's what we will go with but I want to listen to what features they tell us about first.
She will also get to have a site put in. She's scared and nervous but only about the pain compared to shots. We were also given the option to have a site put in so we could see how it feels. When I told Kacey this she started to cry and said "Mommy please don't get one because I don't want you to have diabetes." That brought immediate tears to my eyes. I choked through them and reassured her that just because I had a site didn't mean I'd get diabetes, it meant that I wanted to feel the pain she would be feeling so I could better understand how it feels. She still insisted that I NOT get one. So I'm hoping she will change her mind and I'm leaving it up to her because I don't want her feeling anymore upset emotion than she has to.
I'll update after we get home tonight or tomorrow morning. The class is from 5:30-8:30pm so depending on how tired we are, I'll try and get on :)
