Funny you should mention that.  I spent a year and a half teaching Lily 
everything I could find out about pumping, control and so on.....
And about 6 months to a year ago, something changed. Now she hardly ever 
talks to me about diabetes.  She's off tonight with 
some friends at a play, last night she was out for pizza and study with 
another friend.  Its MARVELOUS! she is independent and totaly comfortable 
with her diabetes and handling it herself.  I have to say, I think she's 
better at it than many adults, she just does it! Fixes highs or lows as 
they come along as naturally as you or I would brush our hair or go to 
the bathroom.

Do your best with Ravi and in a couple of years you will wonder what 
happened to the diabetes 'problem'.
