    We started on insulin yesterday and couldn't be happier.

    This is the first time I have really seen Danielle smile about her disease. She said to me last night, "Mom, I fell like a whole new person! I am so happy I have the pump". To see how happy she was really made my day. All of my hard work has paid off!:D

    When we were with the CDE, the first question Danielle asked was "Can I sleep in tomorrow?". Of course CDE said "Go for it".

    On a good note numbers looked pretty good all night (started the insulin at 6:30pm):
    Bedtime - 150 (which was 1 1/2 hours after dinner because of late appt)
    12am - 100
    3am - 93
    6am -92

    Thank you all for all your answers and advice through this process!

    That is great, I hope it continues for her (and you).

    Was she not allowed to sleep in when she was on MDI? :confused:

    Well, she slept in until about 9:30 on MDI, but this girl can sleep!

    The way I see it, as long as we continue to test her BG this morning, let her sleep, this could be a good basal test :)

    Congratulations! My daughter felt like she got control over her life back with the pump. I'm glad your daughter's loving it!

    That's wonderful. The smile on my sons face when he finally understood that the pump meant no more shots after every meal was priceless and one I remember every time I read a story like this. :D Thanks for sharing.
