We are back.

It has been a very long week but it is looking like it was all worth it.

Most of the time pumps are meant to be reinserted after three days. This week Tom has had to have it re inserted every day because the tube has kinked inside and he wasn't getting enough insulin through. Today finally though he has had no kinks and has been able to keep the pump attached so hopefully it will last until Sunday.

We spent a lot of our time at the hospital on Monday, Tuesday and Wedneday. Yesterday we had a fun day out. We went to Adeliade city and visited Santa in the Magic Cave. Afterwards we walked through Rundle Mall and there was free face painting. Tom was painted as Spiderman and Christopher as a puppy dog. We went shopping and bought some toys. We also went and visited my sister. We had to be back at the hospital at 4pm to see the Diabetes Educator. I am still going to stay in close contact with the Endocrinoligist and Diabetes Educator. We may need to adjust the level of insulin going in through the pump and we need to go back in two weeks and six weeks to have checkups.

thanks for all the prayers. I will have some photo's to share later from our day in town.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
