Re: Re: [IP] Spouse's feelings about pumping



I don't think you guys understood my question. I probably wasn't clear
enough. There is nobody on this list with a spouse that cares more about
them than mine does. She has always been encouraging  and supportive of me
and my pursuit to have the best control that I can. I have had very good
control on MDI (A1c's of 7.1 - 7.5) and because of this we have not had to
think about it constantly. I am looking forward to even better control on
the pump and so is my wife, but when she saw me with the infusion set coming
out of my stomach (QR), it made her sad. It is like when I saw a 30 year old
friend of mine right after she had open heart surgery, the way she looked
was scary, but I new that the surgery was going to make her better. As an
ex-ICU nurse, she has only seen things like this on very sick people.
