Im new to the group an thought id share our journey. My son was diagnosed September 8 2012. Worst Labor Day weekend ever!!! One day your at the beach hanging out and everything is fine, the very next your in the ICU because of some unknown virus.. Little did we know !! That day has forever changed my families lives. I thank god everyday that I brought him in to er .. Had I not been thinking Monday is a holiday and I'd rather not wait till Tuesday.. That Sunday would have been my 14 month old baby boys last.. Everyday is a challenge , but we are getting through it together. I have a incredibly strong baby boy and he amazes me everyday. I'm so grateful he is here and every day after d day is a gift !! We are using the animas ping. I've read some great things about the pod, does anyone have any advice on that ? Plus I am having some difficulties at nighttime checks that I can't see his tiny little finger tip and end up poking air and eventually waking him ! I've Tryed flashlight in my mouth lol Is there a lancing device with a light on it? Wouldn't that be wonderful if there is!
