      Hey there! Yep, Dr. Carrion is our endo, and we too were at RMH at diagnosis back in November.

      How's it going for you guys? Those early days of diagnosis are so rough. How's your daughter doing with it all?

      It would be fun to get the kids together sometime - next time you have an endo appointment, PM me and maybe we could have lunch or something!

      The shortest pen needles are the ones you've got. The next size up are the NovoFine 31G 1/4 inch 6mm needle, and the size up from that is the NovoFine 30G, 1/3 inch or 8mm. 8mm is the length of the needles on your syringes, probably. You can also use plain old syringes for Novolog injections if you and your daughter don't like the pen.

      I also want to point out that under user CP, there's a social group thingy, and then you can click on Chicago Area or various other social groups. If you're getting medical services in Rockford, perhaps it would be good to note that CWD member hawkeyegirl lives in Rockford, and her 4 year old son has diabetes. I am generally interested in meeting other families with diabetes and would be interested in coming out to DeKalb (or Rockford) during December or late November, but am about to get busy with my college classes.
