I think it was around the middle of May that Abbie came up to me and told me she wanted to go back on shots. She said she was tired of being on a pump and having to unplug for swimming and other activities. I was okay with this but I knew it was not the only reason why she was saying these things. I knew it was the anxiety over the infusion changes that had her willing to go back to shots. So, I went looking again at other options even though I would be happy to let her be MDI if that is what she really wanted.
We finally were able to see the real numbers, the ones we had been missing in between the finger pokes. The ones that showed me what food really did to her body and how her insulin reacted to it... this is when our world changed!
