My son was just diagnosed at the beginning of last month. I am so incredibly proud of how well he is doing. . I just joined this forum about an hour ago and was reading some posts...ran across one that said their child was diagnosed in January of one year (don't recall) and started using a pump in November of the same year!? Do they normally switch them so quickly? Our endo told us it would be quite awhile but that was when he was first diagnosed and there was no specification as to how long "quite awhile" would be. We are so new to this and I have so much to learn.
