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