Day 3- Pod Change

Lydia did super when we put the pod on her arm in Birmingham. I woke up this morning thinking about having to put on a new one and started sweating a bit.  We didn't send her to school on Tuesday because of her lows, but sent her today. We couldn't let her miss the last day and this.....

She was sporting that pod on her arm and didn't skip a beat. I showed up and checked her blood sugar for snack time. I hit a few buttons on the PDM and it gave her a  "bolus" of insulin to cover her cheese puffs and sunshine cookie. Is that cool or what, people.

Long story short, we took off the old pod and put on a new pod. It didn't go as well as Monday and for lack of a better word, she was pissed. A- because the old one was SO stuck and didn't want to come off. B- because the new one went into her leg and it hurt.
It was nap time and she didn't want to pose.

We did it though! Changed a pod, downloaded and emailed her records to Bham and now we are just waiting to hear back from the pros. She is fine and snoozing.


  1. Kristee- This is great news! I hate that the pod change was such a pain...praying for y'all!

  2. That's great that you did it! Good for you even though it couldn't have been easy. Now you know what to expect. You got this! Love the waterslide pic.

  3. Bless her heart!!! I cannot imagine!

  4. Like you said, she's the bravest little girl! Hopefully the next change will be easier...and continue! Cute pics...and I like the new setup!

  5. Wow! It continues to be a lot going on! What a blessing that remote is though! I can't wait to hear what Bham says about her data. I hope all will begin to level out a bit. Are you still a zombie?

  6. One day at a time....Love to all of you!

  7. I know we are all sad to see what all of you are going through but to see how much fun she is having with her friends and the smiles on her face says it all. Kristee you are amazing and Lydia you are the bravest little girl that I have ever met( of course you know how grandmothers are)but it is so true. Love to all!!!!
