Well we ended up in the hospital last night with strep throat, they admitted him for observation and now we have to wait 10 days to start the pump. It is so frustrating! I am ready now! Sorry to vent, it just ticks me off. We just got home tonight (it doesn't help that today is my anniversary!) and he will probably be home tomorrow. Thanks for listening all.

I am so sorry Denise! I know how excited both of you were about it. Are they worried about a strep infection at the site if they start him on it? Hey, he's already in the hospital, might as well hook him up - at least that would be my feeling!! It's always something, isn't it? Riley came home from school yesterday crying that her ear hurt - sure enough, ear infection! I hope things go smoothly from here on out!

New Update!
On Thursday we go to Columbus Childrens Hospital for button training, and put saline into the pump (AGAIN! GRRRRR!) and on Monday we enter the hospital for a 23 hour stay to go on insulin and get his basal rate. We are so excited. Pray that nothing happens to stop it this time PLEASE!

Yay! Good luck! I am surprised they are admitting him to start the pump. They didn't do that with us. Interesting. Let us know how it goes.

Well we are now on our saline trial til Monday when they will admit him into Columbus Childrens Hospital (anyone care to come visit and make it better? arrgh!) He did very well during pump training...the end is in sight! I can't wait til Monday, but then on Thursday we have to drive right back down (another 2 hour drive one way) so they can access how we are doing in the first 48 hours. Will let you all know how it goes after monday!

Wow, that's a lot of driving for you all! I'm kind of surprised that they admit him for the pump start. We are lucky that our endo is so close - 20 minutes w/o traffic, about 35+ w/ traffic. It's a little rocky at first but I'm sure you will both get used to it quickly - Caleb will probably be used to it in no time at all! Best of luck and keep us posted...
