Honeymoon is irrelavant to pump therapy. The test/shot/eat regimien 
is still the same grind. The restrictions on his life are still the 
same. Lily started 5 months after dx and was definitely honeymooning 
for at least another 6 months. She ran a basal rate of '0' for 5 
hours a day. The improvement in quality of life were 1000%. Read her 
comments on the kids page "Lily's Essay". Don't let the endo make 
your son wait. There is no justification for witholding the best 
possible treatment.
