Wow, that sounds like my son. Thank you for that bit of insight. My little guy is much younger than yours, so I have no good advice for you, but thank you for giving me a little insight into my boy! I know in Ontario, the last 3 a1cs have to be under 10 to get approval for the provincially-funded pump program. I am assuming that a1cs have to stay under that mark to keep the pump? Perhaps that is why the hospital is thinking of removing its support? Of course, anyone who deals with diabetes day in and day out knows there is a world of difference between under 10 and under 8! I agree with you about the utter stupidity of taking the pump away, though.
