[IP] harsh decision

: email @ redacted
Subject: [IP] forgetting to bolus

My 11 yr old son has been pumping for 3 months now.  Over the past month he
has "forgotten" to bolus for a meal 5 different times resulting in bg levels
in the 400's.  Does anyone else have this problem or children that have this
problem, and what can we do to keep  this from happening?  We always talk
about the number of carbs he is getting and how much he needs to bolus, but
sometime between talking and 4 to 5 hours latter (when he tests again) he has
forgetten. We have told him that if he can't remember his responsibilty we
are going to take the pump away and put him back on shots, which is meet with
earnest pleas to...take the Ninendo, take the Game Boy... but not my pump!
Please HELP!

I no longer have little kids but as a pumper i can say "how harsh' your son
will be the loser with higher A1c's more complications and more pain. take his
gameboy first. please don't take his pump Beverly, spot
