    Thats sweet! Just thinking though, if in like 10 years everyone including their son is wearing tiny patch pumps or whatever, they'll look a bit strange and no one will know what they are! What if he changes brands?! :p

    I thought the same thing. They will have a lasting testimony to the "dinosaur" technology their son had in the beginning...

    "In addition, she has reached out to people in a similar situation on her blog and created a support group for parents. Twenty families rented cabins for a summertime meet-up weekend, and they plan to do it again,"

    I am much more impressed with this. I am sure her son felt better after spending a weekend with 20 other CWD's.
