My daughter Stella was 22 months old when she was diagnosed this Memorial Day Weekend. As you all know so well, my/our world has been rocked. I alternate between being sad, motivated, angry, driven, and oh so very very very grateful that we got to leave the hospital with our daugther (unlike some of the other families in the Peds ICU).
It’s now been a bit more than a month, we’re getting practiced at giving shots, but not at actually controlling the numbers with any decent regularity. I very much look forward to switching to a pump, but Stella’s Dr. says “let’s wait a year.” I’m interested in the experiences of those parents with young children on pumps. At what age? How did you do it? Was your Dr. supportive? Do you have specific advice?
Thank you for this discussion group. I’m getting a lot of comfort from the internet and diabetes blogs.
