So, we finally started Nicholas on the pump, the Omni Pod to be exact. It has been a rough start and it's only our second day. On day one, my parents were watching Nicholas and apparently towards the afternoon, the cannula came out and his blood sugar shot up to 425. So, my husband goes to pick him up and has to put a new pod on. The upside to this...... we figured out that we would put the pods on when he is sleeping. He didn't feel a thing!!! All in all, his numbers were decent, he had some highs, and not too many lows. On day two, I went to buy some sticky ace bandage thing to try and keep the pod from ripping, but I took the kids swimming and it ripped a little anyways. He still has the pod on, but with the help of the ace bandage. His numbers are higher today, so we have to adjust his basal rate to bring him down a little.
|He still knows how to have fun and be a kid!!!|
