<< The first few days I was testing Megan about every 2 hours even at night.
we were pretty sure things were good with her basal dose me pedi-endo said to
quit poking her finger so much.
Thanks, Judy for the info. Kayla doesn't mind the finger pokes so much, so
frequent testing won't be a problem. Dragging myself out of bed during the
night tho... :)
Any suggestions for anyone our ther with skinny kids and placing the infusion
under the skin??'
Have you tried the EMLA cream? I've talked to some kids/parents who swear by
it. It numbs the skin so they feel pressure but not pain. Down side is that
the cream has to be applied 1 - 2 hours before insertion.
