Change is hard. Especially for my rules-following, structure-loving oldest child. So when our CDE suggested we try Grace's arm for infusion sites, I had little faith she'd be on board. Up till now we've only used her bum. We tried her stomach once, but pulled it immediately because it hurt so badly. It's not that her bum is in bad shape - it's fine. It's just that as Grace gets bigger there's more real estate at her disposal. So we talked about it. I showed Grace this picture for inspiration from Wendy's blog. And she did it. Didn't even flinch. My brave girl.
I'm the mom of three beautiful children, the oldest of who was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes on 1/23/09. I recently went back to work, so now have to learn how to be a mom, pancreas, AND full time employee. Can I do it? Not without the help of my wonderful husband!
