Stay tuned for the insulin pump packs my Mom has decided to make Kacey :) She's always been a great at sewing and she bought some amazing material with the batting already made into it!
Last night, Kacey was having a hard time getting comfortable with the granny gown she was wearing. Her site is further back on her side this time and the tubing seemed to pull when it was in the pocket of the granny gown. I remembered seeing something online with a stuffed animal that had a pocket inside for the pump (can't remember where I saw it...sorry!). The wheels in my head started turning and when we left the doctor's office today, I took her to pick out a new stuffed animal that was "squishy" enough to sleep with and had enough room for me to make the pocket. Kacey chose this TY Beanie Bear called "Mellow". I opened up the back of the bear with a pair of scissors and pulled out a handful of stuffing. I then took one of Kacey's socks that was missing a match and shoved it into the hole. A few stitches later...a pump pocket! Now she can sleep comfortably with Herbie resting safely inside the back of the bear :) She hasn't seen him yet! I put Herbie inside and nestled the bear under her arm so when she wakes up she will be so surprised!
