So Close Yet So Far Away. Thanks Saline.

Good News: Zoe is hooked up to her insulin pump.

Bad News: It is full of saline.


We had a saline start training class earlier this week at the Barbara Davis Center we ended up being the only family in attendance because the other family was a no show. First of all, WUT. Second of all, it worked out fabulous for us because we had two kick ass Medtronic rep trainer women (their official title) at our sole disposal and they were amazing. They were Type One wearing their Medtronic pumps, had six kids between them, and basically they both were just winning at life. We blew through that four hour training in less than two hours flat because they were awesome and Zoe? Zoe did her homework.

She had read the manual front to back, watched all the videos, and knew exactly what to do with her pump. She knew how to change the settings and what all the buttons were for and I am so not worried that she can’t handle an insulin pump.

I’m actually worried that I can’t handle the pump because I effed up my iPhone last week and Zoe listened to what I had done, sighed softly, took it out of my hand, punched three buttons, and said “Here, all fixed” while she handed back to me rolling her eyes. It’s exactly what I do to my mother when she asks me to change the ringtone on her flip phone.

She is however less than stoked to be wearing an insulin pump full of saline for “practice” and still taking multiple daily injections.


We did a set change this morning and pretended like it was the real thing. Well, at least I did. She glared at me while I attached the set to her and then gave her a shot.


Insulin Pump Activate with insulin is Tuesday morning. Only 19 more shots to go. I know that because Zoe announced it after her lunch injection today.
