Isabelle surprised me yesterday morning by telling me, "Mommy, I'm not scared of the pump anymore. Maybe I will get one."

What a brave girl. She has been scared of the idea of a pump for a couple of months now, really since I first mentioned it to her. There is a teenager at church who has Type 1 and is on a pump. C has shown Izzy her pump and talked to her about it trying to help her not be afraid. Maybe it is working. We have an Endo appointment on the 22nd of this month. Can't wait to talk to the doctor about a pump. Might help us get her numbers better under control.

Awwwww. She IS so brave. I think it's definitely helpful for the teen at your church to talk to Isabelle and take the mystery from the whole thing.

Sounds like our house lately. J.J. was really fearful until we attended a class this week about the pump. Now he's all for it. Today he even asked "When are we going to the hospital to get my new pump?" I don't know what made him think he had to go the hospital....but it was cute! I think it just takes younger kids time to realize it's not a bad thing....just another unknown thing!!
