Gracie gets pumped!

It’s been a little over a year since Gracie was diagnosed with Type1 Diabetes. It’s been a year of trials, frustration, patience and learning. We knew that eventually we’d be putting her on a pump. A pump is a device that delivers small amounts of insulin directly into your body through a small tube throughout the day. Gracie has been taking about 5-6 shots a day and will now only be doing 1 every three days. (still poking her fingers about 8 times a day) At first I thought, GREAT! Less shots, more convenience…but Friday, after seeing her connected to a machine,¬†dependent¬†on a machine…my heart broke. She’s super excited though! I’m so grateful for modern medicine…

She also just finished her second recital. She played, “You’ve got a friend in me!”
