 And I reiterate, I don't give a rat's patoot about Joshua's A1C at this time. I
just want him to have numbers within range without the huge swings from high to
low. On NPH this an impossible goal. We are always chasing lows or feeding
insulin.

 We, the ones old enough to be concerned with his bg levels, are hoping that the
pump will create at least a semblance of this stability. He, on the other hand,
couldn't care less (well, maybe if he could verbalize that he feels like craps,
he would!).
