She was getting her Omni Pod (Insulin Pump). Her blood sugars have been all over the place, which is not a good thing. When her sugars are high or low they can affect her vision, moods and appetite. Did I mention, MOODS? This little girl is one of the sweetest kids, but let me tell you, if she is really high or really low, her head will spin and green foam will come out of her mouth.
Putting on the Omni Pod was a bit tricky at first and a little scary for us all. With the apprehension also comes a bit of relief because Raquel’s blood sugars should become more stable. For Raquel, she is the most excited because she can start to spend the night at some of her friends houses now. Before she would have to get insulin shots at dinner and right before bed, not to many parents are keen on having to give insulin shots. It is the little things in life that we all take for granted, like sleepovers. These are the little things that really make Raquel happy.
