To the idea of pumping before they started? Michael refuses to even entertain the idea. Michael is doing great on MDIs and I am not looking for him to pump right now. He is also very involved in his own care (testing by himself, packing/carb counting his own lunches, and doing some of his own shots). That's why I say switching at this point would be(in part) his choice, though some I've talked to disagree. If he were doing poorly on MDIs, and I felt that going to the pump would fix it, of course I would make the decision. Michael is not making his decision uninformed. I have two adult aquaintances on pumps. We have visited both, talked to each about thier pumps, and he got to "help" one person do her new site. He asked countless questions and thought about it before deciding his answer was no. Since then it has not been a subject he wishes to discuss.
