Re: [IP] Re: Sleepovers



Pat, Don't worry about making a mistake. Mistakes are learning experiences.
We learn from our mistakes and that is OK. Managing diabetes is trial and
error - we all know what to do and not what to do - it gives us boundaries.
Even at 4 1/2 years of pumping, I still make mistakes and have to look back
at what the heck I did but then I know what to next time that happens! What
matters is that she is having a time of her life and as I can see BG of
149 - she's doing just fine. Relax, enjoy your cup of coffee, etc. Happy
pumping Sharon B
