Pumping Soon and Some Other Stuff

Events in my life seem to happen faster than I can get a chance to blog about them. Now.. where to start??

We made it to camp last weekend. Jaxson had a blast. He rode a horse for the first time in his life (and I'm sad because I didn't get to witness it or get pictures), did some artsy/crafty kind of stuff and made some new friends. I, on the other hand, didn't have that much fun. The speakers were great, but for me it was information that I already knew and sitting for 2 1/2 hours at a time was agony. It's a beautiful camp, well-staffed and organized and Jaxson will surely be attending in the future when he is old enough. I'm thankful the for the opportunity to experience Camp Hertko Hollow.

We had our first pump class on Wednesday night. I've been pretty excited about pumping and I was happy to see Jaxson so enthusiastic about putting in an inset. And as the other kids around the room shared how they hated needles, Jaxson proclaims how much he likes them! Umm.. okay?? Personally, I think he was just excited and loves to talk if anyone will hear him. He has however, always been compliant about needles and injections with little to no complaining, so... YAY! My son likes needles... I guess?

So first thing this morning I was on the phone with our insurance company to check on coverage and also called the Animas Rep to schedule a visit and get our paperwork started. He's coming tomorrow evening.

Is it weird that I'm so excited about this?

And yes, after much studying and comparison, we have decided to go with Animas. I've been trolling blogs in the DOC for weeks and I appreciate you all for taking the time to share your pump experience.

So in the midst of all this, we still have a graduation party to plan for. We've rented a cabin at a lake and we're planning on having a wiener roast and all the stuff that goes along with it. Invitations must go out early next week as graduation is May 15th. I don't even think it's set in yet that I'm about to have another one finished with school and going to college in the Fall.

That's a wrap for now. Goodnight DOC and sweet dreams <3

Dusting off the Cobwebs

I've been MIA for quite some time. Amy pointed out that my blog was getting a bit dusty, so it sounded like a good idea to at least update.

Nothing extra-ordinary has really happened since my last post. I think we've just been finally settling into our D-life. It doesn't seem to be dominating our every day lives as it did in the beginning. I mean.. it's still there of course, every minute of every day, but we seem to be finally letting go a bit and actually getting back to the business of living... ya know?

We have our first pump class next Wednesday, which we are all very excited about. Still haven't quite decided between Animas or Medtronic.

Jaxson, his dad and myself are going to a family weekend at Camp Hertko Hollow. We were given a scholarship from a local Lions Club to go and feel very grateful and blessed. Jaxson is so excited and he's counting down the days! I'm excited for him too, but it's one of those times that I wish there were 2 of me. My girls are going to prom this weekend and I won't be here to see them or help them get all dolled up. I've asked my oldest, married daughter to play mom while I'm away. She's been instructed to tell them to take LOTS of pictures and the other 2 have been told to go directly home the next morning (I have neighbors watching).

I'm also preparing for Shelby's High School graduation in May and finalizing her stuff for college.

Payton has turned into a peacock. I don't know what color her hair will be from one day to the next. I was actually diggin' the fuchsia hair though... until she made it purple 2 weeks later.

Shelby, Andi, Payton. My girlies.
On top of all that, I've also re-enrolled in school to finish my medical transcription course. I try to spend at least 5 hours a day on my work.

I am THE worlds worst multi-tasker, but I also work well under pressure. Unfortunately, the D-Tour here has been put on the back burner. I hope you all haven't forgotten me. I still follow the DOC and keep up-to-date as much as I possibly can. Please know you are all never far from my thoughts. I will try and be more diligent in posting. I'll be back to share about camp and prom early next week!
