Yikes! The end of the school year sure ate up a lot of time! Is anyone still interested in reading this blog?
We are very excited still about the Guardian RT. I just went to hear an endocrinologist speak about all the crazy stuff that happens during puberty. I am happy that we can slip in the sensors whenever we feel it to be worthwhile.
The other day, Tommy was priming his pump, and he accidentally primed an extra 8-12 units into his body. (Mom's Fault.) Tommy gets 15 units a day and has a sensitivity of 200 units, so 8-10 units at once is a little scary. Medtronic advised us to go to the emergency room, but the endo on call thought we were armed with everything that we needed with the Guardian RT. So, we knew when he was on his third grape pop and he was still at 70 that we needed to continue with the carbs. It was 6 hours before we saw 120.
We continue to negotiate reimbursement with our insurance company. They are still asking questions which I think is promising.
We are getting excited to upgrade to the new 522 pump. We may even have it by the end of June! Tommy is excited to lose the extra monitor.
