Hi, My son is 8 and diagnosed just over a year ago. We started on the animas ping last week and so far we are all loving it. His numbers have been decent and he is just so happy to not need shots and to be able to snack so much more easily. Still need to adjust basals, maybe ratios, etc., but so far the start has been better than what I expected. We started the process to get the dexcom as well, and it is scheduled to arrive today! My question is - are we crazy to start two things at once? I was thinking we could start dex on Friday and have the weekend to hopefully figure it out before sending him to school. Is that enough time? Will I lose my mind trying to learn two things at once. From the outside, the dex looks relatively easy to use, as compared to the pump. But maybe I am kidding myself? Also - any advice on how to keep the sensor and transmitter in place? I have heard all kinds of advice, ranging from just put it in and keep it there for 7-10 days, to very elaborate ways of taping to keep it in place. My son is 8 and VERY skinny. He is using the animas contact detach steel needle sites for the pump because the angled sets would fall out of him. We've only done one site change but they seem to stay in place. I know dexcom is not supposed to go in the arm, but that seemed like the best place to put it because our real estate for the pump sites is already limited. Any advice or suggestions? Thanks!
