It's been about 7 weeks since we starting pumping with Omnipod.
Matthew likes it a lot. He still hestiates at site changes because he's had a couple that have hurt, but for the most part, he likes it.
I'll be honest, though, the transition from shots to pumping has not been easy.
At our pump class, the CDE (a type 1 herself) said the first 3 months of pumping would be 3 times the work. She said things would probably get worse before getting better.
She was right.
But the past few days....and yes, I'm a little fearful to write this....things are finally...dare I say it......settling down.
I think I have basals set. Pretty darn close. (I am living and breathing Meri's 3-day-rule. Which, by the way, our CDE believes it as well!)
Carb ratios seems to be working.
And let me tell you....it's about time. A look back over the logbook shows me the dirty details of what we've been going through the last 7 weeks:
17 days with BGs over 250.
5 of those days, we saw BGs over 350.
16 days where Matthew had low BG. Oh how he hates going low.
But God has been good and the numbers are getting better.
Until the next growth spurt, right?
