We have our first insulin pump class today! Sáin already picked out which she wants; we will be going with the Medtronic Paradigm. (Sáin will be getting the crayon "skin" to make it more personal.) The insulin pump is not perfect but it’s the best treatment available. Eventually I hope she goes on the continuous glucose monitor for even tighter control but I’ll have to see what Premera covers on that since a 4-pack of the monitors runs over $200 and they are changed every couple days. It’s hard when you have to look at the costs of keeping your kid healthy. The insulin pump we’re looking at today is actually worth more than my car but complications scare me a lot more than the prospects of going broke or working multiple jobs to keep my kids healthy and well educated.
