So we got the okay on the pump from our endo (yay!).. we are going to hold off till Summer because Lilly has missed so much school already after her dx and I'd like to do it when we're all home and can adjust easier. So we're looking at probably June for her pump. The thing is that now that we have the go ahead on it, I'm having 2nd thoughts. The doctor's thoughts were that we shouldn't be going on it because we think that medically it's going to be a huge benefit (that you can get as good of A1Cs with MDI as with a pump), but that's not what we were really wanting it for. I am hoping that a pump will give us a bit more freedom with her Diabetes, free her up from all the shots, and allow us to be more precise with her insulin dosages. I am hoping it will allow her more freedom with what she eats (to let us cover for small snacks/etc). So are those realistic expectations? What are the CONS to pumping? The endo explained that you have a much higher risk of DKA with pumping since you have no Lantus/long acting insulin, it's all the novalog/short acting, so if you have a kink in the site/etc you can get into trouble quicker. What other things are harder or a pain with pumping? I want to be going into this with my eyes wide open and not thinking that pumping is going to solve all our problems. I know it will probably introduce new problems as well as solve some that we have now. So let me have it.. good/bad/ugly about pumping? Any links you can give me are welcome too!
