Carol, of course you are frustrated and probably a bit depressed about it
too. I know I was.
Claire's HbA1c pre-pump were always around 10, and one not long after her
being ill for a couple of weeks, was 11. We had moved back to Canada from
the UK to get her on a pump. So then the hospital said she needed to have
better control before she could start a pump. DUH!!! Why did they think I
wanted a pump??? I quickly found a new endo and hospital, thank goodness,
who said she could start pumping right away, after a session with the nurse
and dietician to review carb counting etc. I was very well prepared for
pumping, I would have started her myself, which is legal in Canada.
Now with her recent switch to Novolog, we have days and days of in-range
numbers. Its so incredible that now I consider a 180 a really high
number--18 months ago I was very happy to see a 180 and not a 360 bg.
So hang in there, things will be better with a pump. And its a
difficult age, your son is probably eating lots, growing, etc.
Barbara, Mum of Claire born 4/94; dx 4/97; pumping with H-tron, Quick-sets
(and now Novolog) 4/01
