I hope you all saw this wonderful story on World News, it is so inspiring to see the hope we have for the future of our children! Other people may say it is not enough but I see the Artificial Pancreas as a glimmer of hope for my little boy! Follow this link to watch the video! http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8046715

Omnipod on Tommy's stomach with Waterproof band-aid for Reinforcement!
Omni Pod PDM and Pod!
I-Port with Band-Aid Around It.
I wanted to follow up again about Tommy's experience with the I-port. We are still going through some trial and error. He has prematurely pulled it off twice with his clothes and when I put it on his stomach he fiddled with it so much it became dislodged. I am going to try again and this time I will take a large band-aid and cut out the center of it to apply over the I-port to close the gap between the device and the skin. I hope this will prevent his clothes from getting hung in the device. I will post again soon with more photos and information about our experience.

We are going to have our annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday 4/11/09 at the Church of the Holy Communion. We will be meeting from 10am to noon as usual. Lunch will be served after the egg hunt. Please let me know how many children and adults are planning to come so we can be sure to have plenty of “stuff”
Hope to see you all there.
Hello everyone! These are the pictures from the March meeting of Hot Shots, the kids made kites and colored pictures, they had an egg race and played board games! Lots of fun all around, I enjoyed speaking with the diabetes educator about all of the different pumps and glucose sensors on the market, she had brought examples of all of them and I was able to see the "Omni Pod" it is really cool, we are considering using this technology for Tommy. The next meeting will be Saturday, April 11th from 10am-12 noon, everyone is welcome to bring their families to participate, we are trying to encourage all age groups of families with children with diabetes to come out. to the meetings. For more information you can contact me at Jamieschull@aol.com or one of the contact numbers on the side of this page.
There is a large open space as well as tables for the children to play games!
Here's my Tommy with little Cookie eyes!
Boxes overflowing with fun and games are brought to each meeting for the children!
