    Guess what today is? Free shower day! Time to bask in twenty minutes worth of disconnected/no pump shower bliss. I am thankful for my pump, but I also look forward to the times where I get to be completely free of my tubing/sites.

    My question for all of you is: what are you thankful for today? :cwds:

    I'm thankful for my husband and his ability to work from home, so I could take Ella to the endo today without lugging the other 5 along :)
    Awesome on the free showers. Ella always looks forward to hers too.

    I'm thankful my son is such a trooper. Went to the orthopedic doc today with the expectation he'd get his wrist cast off...been in a cast for 6 weeks now...4 weeks up to the shoulder, 2 in a wrist cast. Although his wrist is technically healed, it is still tender, and the doc thought 2 more weeks in a wrist cast would be prudent after such a bad break (both bones were broken like sticks:eek:).

    My son, who was so excited about getting that thing off, handled it so well without even one little complaint. We had lunch at McDonald's as a consolation prize!:cwds: Very proud of him today.

    Sophie loves shower free days, too.

    Today, I am thankful for her wonderful teacher who called at 7:30 this morning to make sure it was okay for Sophie to have a pepperment before they took their staars test and had already figured out the carb count for each one for me. She also asked "Does she need to put this in her pump?" which is reassuring to know that she understands that SOphie has to cover everything she eats.

    my dd loves free shower days also. She takes extra long showers and takes forever to towel off, gather supplies and finally put on a new site! :)

    I must be missing something, all my showers are pump free, and I'm disconnected at least an hour(I take the missed basal before I disconnect)

    On the days when Sophie does a site change, she disconnects her pump and takes a shower without a site on. She loves those days and takes a longer shower than normal.

    Oooooh. Thanks for explaining, I've been silently wondering! I'll bet that is a good feeling.
