[IP] Re: convince the doctor

Sorry I haven't been clear. I have 9 kids 5 with diabetes, and 3 of the 5
still live at home.Alex who is 10 Nat who is 7 and Ayana whos 6. The first
of my six Alex was diagnosed Nov. of 94' at that time we had his twin
tested for antibodies who was negative.All my kids have been tested for
antibodies, only one who doesnt have diabetes tested postive, my little one
Aether and when i found he will get it i had to stay in bed for 2 days. In
this order after that Chloe Ayana Nat and then Star at age 17 was diagnosed.
So its been about 7 years ive been dealing with diabetes. Im sorry if my
post confused all of you sometimes my family tends to do that. My husband
Jude is also diabetic but thank god is well controlled threw his shots. I
spoke to my endos Nurse today and said that he seems to be on the fence
about letting Alex pump.
