    We started the pump (saline) at end of April, almost 7 months ago to the day and she's only let us use her bottom.
    She let us try a thigh site tonight!!! :D
    She said no stinging occurred like it does on her bottom, and it didn't even hurt! I'm doing a dance, I wish you could see!
    It took $5.00 out of my wallet, and putting the Christmas tree up tonight- a small price to pay in my opinion. ;)

    That's great! Worth the price. Always nice to have alternates for rotation.

    Yay Abby!!!
    Lanae, I totally understand how huge that is. Julia was the same way. It took us forever to get her to venture off of her tummy, which was her biggest fear when she was dx'd, but after she tried a few times became the site for all injections, and sets. After a few months of pumping we really needed a new spot while her tummy healed. I had to take her to lunch, and buy her a few small toys for bribery. Now she likes her arm, and it is still hard to get her to do her bottom, or thigh.

    We put it about 3 inches down from her underwear on the top front part of her thigh . I think she's going to like it a lot better for using the restroom and pulling down her panties. The tubing goes up towards her tummy instead of going around to her tummy from the butt.

    Hopefully since that was such a good experience she will continue to experiment with new places!! Tori loves her upper arms.

    Hey Lanae! That's great!!! Yay!!! Let me know how the thigh site works out for you!! We only use bottom ourselves right now, so I'm taking a big interest in this, too :p.

    And it IS big deal!!!!!!!:)
