I am so, so happy to report that this second time was way better than the first. Elise handled the insertion like the rock star that she is. And two hours later, we are getting our first set of readings... 170 and holding steady pre-nap. That's what I like to see!
Sensor insertion... she didn't even cry!
Showing off her sensor (yes we used the leg again... it's really the only place she has any fat)
Her prize for doing so well... Belle!
To say I'm excited is an understatement. Elise was even pretty pleased about the whole thing.
I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I am just a Mom whose little girl has Type 1 Diabetes. On this blog you will find tips and advice, but it should NEVER be a substitute for your doctor's wisdom. If your child has diabetes, or you suspect that your child has diabetes, please seek the attention of a healthcare professional, and not some crazy, over-worked, frazzled, sleep-deprived nutjob who has staked out her corner of the world-wide-web-information-super-highway and is espousing her viewpoints from it.
But I think that's good advice when it comes to anything, don't you?
