Okay this weeks poll. How do your other children handle Diabetes? Brought a memory up. Last month I was at my middle brothers house. We were sitten around talking (his long childhood friend was there) and my pump started beeping I took it out of my pocket and he asked what that was. Now he knows I have Type 1 and he knows that is why I used to take shots but he really never understood what type 1 was. And my brother said "That is a insulin pump it gives her insulin through that tubing every 3-5 min. Then when she eats she takes what is called a bolus instead of taking shots. She also have a CGMS (he used that) that helps control her blood sugar by taking it every 5 min. and sends it to the insulin pump and when she is high or low it beeps and tells her" HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT!!! "Well when mom told me you were getting a insulin pump I went online and researched all of the different kinds and learned how they worked I even went to a siminar and asked a bunch of questions, I wanted to wear one but you have to have an RX. did you know that there is one that does not have tubing" I started to tear up and was like "I didn't know you really knew that much" "Well yeah sis I love you and wanted to know what you were going through" My brother my sweet sweet brother. He went through all that trouble just to know what I was going trough. Well I just thought I would share that. Have a great day!!!
