Pumping Insulin


Check out that smile :)

Herbie is officially loaded with his first cartridge of insulin and Kacey is an official "pumper"...wooohooo!

Today is freedom....freedom for Kacey to feel a little more normal...freedom from doing so many shots...freedom for our whole family :)

We had to be at the Diabetes Center at 10am this morning. Kacey was a little disappointed that we had to put in ANOTHER new set but it was well worth it ;) She was so excited to see Kristen again and I did her site without either of us being in tears! It was a great visit and I'm so happy for her! Since we did her last shot of Lantus last night, she is on a temp basal until 8pm tonight and then it will switch back to normal. She was thrilled at lunchtime because she did her first insulin dose with the pump. She was grinning ear to ear and said, "Look Mom...no shots!" LOL! Her numbers have been great and we couldn't have asked for a better day.
