First week with the Omni Pod

We are loving our Omni Pod so much. It is making our life so much easier!! Meal times are a little less painful for us. The pump makes counting carbs so much faster.

Nights are still very hard for me. I have been waking up at least 4 times a night on a good night to check him. I am still very nervous about night time lows and even highs. I am hoping once I can trust the pump a little better at night I won't have to wake up so much. Ean's numbers in the past were always crazy on any given day or night he would be in the high 300's to low 70's. I am finding with the pump we are almost always in the 100 range. E's personality has also been so much better. I can just tell he just feels better on the pump.

I just want to thank all of the Diabetic Moms for all of the help this week. You guys have really helped me out so much during this pumping experience. It is so nice to know I can contact someone if something comes up in the future. You guys are really awesome!!!!

We went to Festival International this weekend and brought the babies. The pump makes outings less stressful. The twins had so much fun!! It was such a beautiful sunny weekend.
