July 2010....To pump or not to pump

At this stage, Abbey has been diagnosed  for 10 months and after full time research and also seeing her HbA1c was 8.4 ..I felt there was room for improvement so that was our conversations for about 2 months prior to July.
By May 2010 Abbey decided she wanted to pump because she loves to sleep in and she loves a variety of different foods which was hard to do with having shots.
I know pumping is not for everyone but for us it felt so right, and somehow I think you just know when the time is right.
SSoo I approached our endo and she said that the doctor, the social worker and the dietitian would have to approve first..
after waiting one month for some response I received "THE" letter saying They approve Abbeys application.
Yay!!! how happy do you think I was.
I was determined that even though my daughter was given this awful disease... I would work as hard as I have to make her life as normal as possible without complications.
Well what a road ahead...

  1. We had quite a transition in 2007, and I nearly threw the freaking thing out the window a million times. 4 years later, and I'm happy we've stuck with it...but there was a time I would have sworn her pump was out to get me.
