We are now about 3 weeks in to our pumping adventure and haven't had any further issues. Infusion set changes have become second nature for us. We.are.in.love. I watched as the weight that had descended on my son, lifted from his shoulders. He feels as normal is it is going to get for a D kid now. I'm not going to lie and say it's all peaches and cream , he still has D and D still bites.
Seth HATED the shots. I don't even know how to fully convey how deeply he hated the shots. He did what he had to do to keep himself alive, but he dreaded it. Loathed it. Chose not to have a snack so he wouldn't have to cover for it with a shot.
When we did the saline trial, Seth was nervous about the insertion, but agreed he would try it ONCE. I prayed it would go well. After the insertion, Seth looked at me and he was all smiles. "I can do this mom. It felt like a finger flick. It's nothing compared to shots."
On a side note, school ended last Friday for my kids and I am cleaning up the library and rearranging computer labs this week. My summer officially starts this Friday at 3pm and I am SO ready.
