[IPu] Fw: [IP] My 12 mo old was just diagnosed

Hi Michelle,
I wonder if you might contact Colleen on the US list re your recent 
with Harper Pumping  at 14 months.  I think she'd really appreciate it ...
Did you handle the time zones when travelling OK ?
Warm Regards,

Subject: [IP] My 12 mo old was just diagnosed


A few days ago my 12 month old son Will was diagnosed. I've been type 1 
since I
was 3 and pumping for 5 years. I haven't participated on the list much since
Will was born, but I need you guys again.

I guess things are going relatively well, since my husband and I are kinda 
pros at this. We're at Children's Hospital of Philly, and are heading home
tomorrow. Most of the staff here were appalled at the notion of getting him 
on a
pump, but a wonderful lady at Animas has promised to get him on one within 3
weeks. The plan is to see Dr. Alan Schorr (in PA) Monday or Tuesday, get a 
for a pump, and get pumping within a week or so.

I'd love to hear from anyone with a baby/toddler on a pump, or even any
feedback on Dr. Schorr.

By the way, we found out as a result of Will's being in the TRIGR study (a
trial to look at the effect of cow's milk on developing diabetes on the
genetically at-risk.) We caught it early and he didn't go into dka. The 
study is
for babies of type 1's.
