Hooray! We finally have straightened out all of the insurance issues and are set to start pumping. We will be meeting with our pump trainer at our endo's office Monday. We will be doing a saline trial for a few days and then switching over to insulin on Thursday or Friday.
I am so looking forward to starting on the pump. The biggest reason is that Julia has always been a grazer. That has been one of the hardest adjustments for us and her. Another huge reason, birthday parties. There is nothing worse than having to look your sweet baby in the eye and tell her "Of course you can have cake but then you have to have another shot." Her answer is usually always, "Okay Mommy" or "I know Mommy" but it bums me out every time.
There is fear too, I am nervous because it is new. I know it will be an adjustment and probably frustrating. After talking to Cynthia, reading positive pumping posts from the rest of the DOC, and feeling the support and love from all our friends and family, I know we are ready. I posted on facebook yesterday after speaking to the insurance because I was so happy. Seeing all the "likes" and supportive comments humbled me and brought me to tears. Thank you for making me stronger.
I will update after we are rolling to let you all know how it goes but until then, please keep us in your thoughts.
