Dd2 just had her "3 months after diagnosis" dr's apptment yesterday. Results -- H1C of 6.2 -- HURRAH! And a very perturnbed mother! The doctor originally told us that they really wanted ALL pediatric patients on the pump after 1 year, but I am feeling pressured already. About every other comment from the nurses was "When you r dd goes on the pump..." The nurses are really encouraging us to think about the pump, and they only tell us the positive about the pump...... So I have a strange question -- What are the NEGATIVES of having a pump? More testing? Having something attached? Swimming? I would love to hear all the down-sides of wearing a pump.
