THE PUMP

A



We finally got Boston an Insulin Pump! After paying our high out of pocket money for Boston in 2007, We got him a pump before the year ended so we didn't have to pay a dime! If we would have waited it would have been $1200.00. That's 20%. Thank goodness I am a smart thinker and thought about getting 1 week before New Years Day! Otherwise we would have had to pay! How this pump works is, we don't have to give him shots anymore! He still has to get a finger prick but no more shots! This is just so much easier. All we have to do it type in his blood glucose level and how many carbs he eats and it calculates how much insulin he needs and pumps it right in! Every 3 days we have to change the spot where it hooks to his bottom! (As you can see in the picture) It is so funny cause it looks like he has a pager! I am sure I get a lot of weird looks like. "Why would they give a two year old a pager". At least until they see the long tube that hangs down! It has helped him so much be at a normal level and it make us feel so much better to know that he is in better control!! We actually put his pump in his monkey leash when we go out cause sometimes it's so heavy on his pants they fall down! That's only because I buy him bigger pants! This is the smartest thing we did and I am so glad we did it when we did! He is jsut so cute with it! Next time you see him you will laugh because it is just so crazy to see a 2 year old have a pump

I am so happy for both/all of you. That will make things so much easier, I can imagine. He is such a cute little boy (even if he does sneak out of the house :) ) and I have to say that I admire how well he is handling all this (not to mention you, his parents).
