Helloooooo!  
I know it's been a long time since I have posted but we have just been so darn busy, sorry :(
To tell you the truth I have been thinking about pumping so much lately that it's making me crazy and very scared.  There are days when I really don't like the idea of starting over again, lately C's sugars have been excellent and diabetes in general has been a breeze.  That little voice in my head is saying "if it ain't broke don't fix it" but Colin wants to have the freedom to eat more of what he wants and when he wants to eat it.  With the summer almost here I can see why he is feeling this way, cool drinks and freezies are the best unless you are a type 1.  The reasons don't stop there though, I will be learning it all on my own and then teaching it to Daddy since he works out of province for 3 weeks straight every month.  I am one of those people who needs a 2nd pair of eyes and ears for all the learning so that I can ask "hey they said to do it like this right?" but I won't have that other person here to bounce stuff off of and that scares me more than anything.  I don't know how you single parents out there do it, I tip my imaginary cap to you all.  I know it wont be totally like diagnosis again since I have almost 4 yrs of this under my belt it "should" be a little easier on me and not confuse me so much.  Ahhhhh well Clinic is June 9 and hopefully the endo will give us the thumbs up and we can start the summer off pumping.  Does anyone out there think that starting pumping in the summer is a good or bad idea, pls share?  I figure since we are home and he's off it is the right time but what do I know lol.  

Hope everyone is having a great weekend

I TOTALLY feel your crazy/scared-ness! I just wanted to let you know though that when you get to that point in learning and starting the pump, I am just a phone call or message away. I will help you out as best as I can! :o)

I understand. I really do. I think summer is probably the best time, since there's no school. Good luck!!!

If you have any questions or concerns about pumping Kerry please feel free to email me sweetandjoe@gmail.com. I would be happy to share Joe's experiences. It has been pretty much all positive. I do think the pump is more "work" sometimes, but worth the freedom and the "normalcy"...

I wish I could share some words of wisdom with you about 'pumping' but I have no idea what you're dealing with.

Hats of to you too!
