When I wrote my post about my insulin pump last week, I thought I'd be hooked up and using it by now. Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned. I did go for my training session on Monday and it was great. I hit it off with the trainer right away, I learned a lot and I had a great time doing it. The only glitch was that my doctor's office had a conflict for our next appointment, so we had to reschedule that. On the up side, it gives me more time to practice with the pump tutorials and pour over the manuals. On the down side, it will be a few more days before I'm hooked up. (Thanks to the trainer, much of my fear has turned into anticipation, so I'm hopeful the time will go by quickly!)
The big day is Monday, April 14th. And in a fitting coincidence, that same day is Type 1 Diabetes Awareness Day!
In honor of the day, I'll share my thoughts with you as I embark on this new chapter in my Diabetes life. Pea is coming to my appointment too, for support and also so he can learn about the pump along with me. So maybe I can designate him as "Event Photographer" and have him snap some pictures as I get "hooked up".
More importantly, what do you want to know about Type 1 Diabetes? Do you have questions I might be able to answer? What can I share with you? And what can you share with me? Leave me your questions and thoughts in the comments, and I'll include them in my post on Monday. Remember, the more you ask, the more we can all learn!
(P.S. I've pre-written this post in Blogger in Draft. It's still in beta, but I was anxious to see how it works. If you are reading this, then it has worked fine!)
