I’m so excited to be able to announce that in 9 days Sarah will ditch her needles and start using an insulin pump… yipee! We have known this was coming for a while, but last week we actually received her new pump and tomorrow we go to clinic so that Sarah can be hooked up to it and wear it for 24 hours just for practice. Then we go back January 28th to really start with insulin. We are so excited and so relieved.
The pump is going to be such a game changer for her. Yes it means that she has to wear a device 24/7… but she will finally be able to eat like a normal human being again! She can snack an hour after breakfast if she wants… she can eat a late lunch or skip lunch all together.. and she can have dessert and eat birthday cake, woohoo!!!! Right now when she’s getting needles we have to match carbs to the amount of insulin she gets, so we have had to be really regimented with snack-times and the amount of carbs she eats for meals and snacks. It’s been hard on her and it will be nice to give her back the freedom that she craves.
Here is Sarah waiting at her last clinic visit… insulin pump here we come!!
