Unchartered Territory Revisited
Back in April, I was inspired by Nicole's chicken thigh as a new territory for infusion sets and had been working the idea on Brendon since then.
Well, it must be that he just turned 7 because he finally agreed to get it done in his meaty thigh. His numbers had been riding in the 200's a couple of days ago, so Jeff changed his infusion set. Jeff usually does the insertions in the stomach or the buttocks, but the sites must be used up because yesterday and today he was riding in the 200's, and even climbed into the 300's today at school.
So I broached the subject with him once again.
"Bren, you know those blogs I read?"
"Well, a lot of those people use their thighs to do their infusion sets. Maybe we should try it on you because I think your stomach and butt are used up."
"I don't think my thighs are meaty enough."
"Oh, believe me Bren, your thighs are meaty enough."
I reminded him that we used to give him shots in the thigh all the time back before he went on the pump. He agreed to have it done and said it hardly hurt at all.
Now if I can just convince him to try his arm. I told him about this guy who's my age who finally got the courage to get a set in his arm. I showed him the picture that Scott posted so he could see how it would look. Brendon contemplated the idea, but wasn't ready....yet......
What would I do without the PWD Posse?
