Yesterday was just a bad Diabetes day in our house and almost all of it seemed to center around the pump. BG and ketones were high (in both kids) and it seemed like every time I would figure out what was causing it (which was frequently pump related) and correct it, something else would go wrong (once again, pump related). Numbers in the 400's, ketones upwards of 1.5 and the general crappyness that comes with it seemed to plague our day. Be it bad sites, kinked canulas, bubbles in the tubing or reservoir, the pump seemed to be where the problem always centered. By the end of the day, both me and the kids were questioning whether the pump is really even worth all of this. Don't get me wrong-I realize and greatly appreciate how much easier pumping has made living with Diabetes but at the same time I wonder if pumping is really that much easier or if by moving from MDI we just traded one evil for another. Maybe I'm just crazy for thinking that shots would make this any less difficult. Besides, this is diabetes we're talking about which isn't exactly synonymous with easy.
