The craziness of managing Diabetes in a child. An all and only about Type 1 Diabetes x's two in our house.
I'm not the depressed, obsessed, controlling, nagging, angry, and complaining person that this blog reflects. This blog is where I leave my daily Diabetes frustrations and move on. I do hope I can help others like us by voicing these feelings and being honest, helping you know you are not alone!
Check out these bandages. For $2.00 per box this is a miraculous little find. After 6 hours of swimming yesterday you can see the bandage is still holding strong on Maddison's arm over her pump site. I cut a hole in the center of the bandage where the padding is, and it works perfectly. We have tried everything to get Maddison's sites to stay on during the summer swim season. I think this little bandage just made my day! First I was just applying a bandage with each swim and then removing it after. The bandage would hold sometimes and not others. The secret I have just found is applying the bandage right away with a new site change. We apply IV Prep wipe with every site change to get the sites to stick normally, so with yesterdays new site I immediatly covered it with this waterproof bandage as well. I guess the IV prep wipe is the secret to get this bandage to stick! And stick and stick! YAY for a $2 miracle in a box! Summer just got a little bit easier in our house :)
