6 Hour Update

It's been 6 hours since Kacey got hooked up. We've made it through lunch & dinner and everything is going better than I could have imagined! The only hard part about this is remembering to actually dose her with a needle since it's only saline in "Herbie". I helped her dose at lunchtime and then when it was time for her to eat, she didn't want me to touch it and I got the "Mom, I can do it myself! I learned how to already!" (ouch!) I had to make her slow down through the bolus screens so I could see what she was doing. I'm amazed that she can work it already! I must say, I'm thrilled about not having to figure up doses and only count carbs. The pump does all the work for us :)
I had bought her a solid black case that hooked to a belt that had bright colored hearts on it. The case was really a camera case and had a zipper on it but she quickly decided she didn't like it because the zipper rubbed her skin. see what she switched to? She said those packs are soft against her tummy and she doesn't even know she's wearing it! So once again...two thumbs up to Insulin Pump Packs For You and Cara!
