We tried the insets and liked them OK, but everytime his sugar shot up, I'd get paranoid that something was wrong with his set. They also sent some Contacts (metal sets). We are using those now and it has helped my peace of mind a lot. When his sugars are high, I don't immediately think his set is kinked, because, well, it can't be. I told the CDE that the metal sets are the best right now for my peace of mind. I'm sure we'll switch back to the insets later, but for now we're sticking with the Contacts.
I am currently watching UNC play basketball. My favorite team, Duke, won yesterday and will be moving on the the next round. For those who don't know, if you live in NC, you're either a Duke fan or a UNC fan, not both. I pull for Duke and whoever plays UNC. So, for tonight, go Murray State (whoever you are). Gonzaga also won last night, but barely. BTW, I won my shirt on ebay and am wearing it right now. I've gotten some strange looks because of it, but I don't care. GO ADAM MORRISON!!!
Sorry I'm not more informative about the pump, but to be honest, I'm just tired and really don't feel like reliving the last week on the pump. I promise eventually I'll get back on track.
Just one more pumping tidbit. Today Riley was talking about a boy in Holden's class who has D. He doesn't wear a pump. He's 14 and is not interested in having one. Riley was asking about A's pump. I told him he didn't have one, that he just took shots. Riley just had a look of disbelief on his face. He just couldn't seem to believe that someone would take shots when they could be on the pump. He said, "Well, I love my pump. I don't ever want to go back to shots." It's things like this that give me the strength to keep going. Knowing this is what's best for him and this is really what he wants.
