RE: [IPp] old habits...



Congrads Karen and Lauren!  It's amazing how much freedom the whole family
suddenly regains when pump therapy is started!  I don't think anyone but a
fellow parent of D child would understand the lengths that we went while on
shots.  And it's truly wonderful to see your child experience the freedom
they can barely remember having (if at all)!

Hope everything is still going well!  Happy pumping!

Angela, mom to Ashley, 4 (dxd 1/01) & Kristina, 19 mo.

Subject: [IPp] old habits...

Lauren started pumping yesterday and it's going well.  The night numbers
were good and the CDE and I know how we want to approach the highs and
lows we have seen during different times of the day.

I was so happy to serve lunch to the kids at 1:00 yesterday instead of at
12:00.  Lauren wasn't hungry at 12:00, and she didn't have to eat!  This
afternoon, she went to a neighbor's house and had chocolate cookies.  I
don't think she's had chocolate cookies in over a year without extensive
planning.

After I gave her a bolus at the neighbor's house, I thought that I should
get home because I need to start cooking dinner at 4:00 to make sure that
it's on the table by 5:00, or else she won't eat bedtime snack at 7:30.
Then I remembered, oh yeah, we don't have to eat at 5:00!  We can wait
until 6:00 and eat dinner with my husband (which also hasn't happened
much in the past year and a half).  Pumping is great!  I laughed at
myself for slipping into old habits.  After all the cookies, the kids
wouldn't be hungry for dinner at 5:00 anyway.

Thanks again to everyone on this list who supported us as we went through
different endos and CDEs to get Lauren pumping.  It was a long road, but
we got there!
Karen
