I remember a time when I was dead set against putting my son on an insulin pump. It seemed as if there were too many risks to make it worthwhile. I eventually came to realize that people tend to share bad news more than talk about the status quo and when things are non-events and the potential issues were far and few between. It took almost a year and a lot of researching and soul searching, but I finally got to a place where I was comfortable with pumping and really looking forward to it.
This morning, Jonathan's doctor asked us to take him off the pump for a week or two until the infection clears up. I haven't seen Jonathan since this, but Bobbie says he seemed ok with going back on shots. Me on the other hand, I'm not happy about this at all! After a taste of not having to drive a needle into him multiple times a day, having a more relaxed schedule (in terms of meal times), and being able to correct those slightly off numbers, I don't want to go back and feel that it's horribly unfair for him to have to go back to MDI. I made him a couple of shirts for his birthday tomorrow that I think I will put away until he's back on the pump since they include a lot of pumping related things.
