Re: [IPp] Re: Camps for Diabetics

Shortly after Tiffany was diagnosed, she wanted to stay the night at a
friends house.  I told her she could not stay anywhere until she could give
her own shot.  That was out "magic cure".

She also uses her backside for her pump sites.  We practiced with her
placing just the inserter on her backside and pushing the buttons to get
used to it.  When she was used to this, we started with the site.

Camp is absolutely wonderful.  Tiffany went for the first time this past
summer.  She is still talking about it.

Mom of Tiffany dxd 7/02, pumping since 8/03
