So now we wait, hopefully not too long, before we take the next step in our diabetes 'adventure' (can I call it that?!) Aleksi's HbA1C was much better at 7.3 from 8.2, helped along I'm sure by a few 'lows'. However we now feel, including the Doctor, that the insulin pump is the way to go. Here in Finland they use the Minimed Paradigm Veo pump and they are hoping to get approval for us to be supplied with the Continuos Glucose Monitoring sensors too. With luck it will be our turn April/early May. It involves a 3 day stay in hospital and lots of learning!
Meanwhile it is still very cold and snowy, actually quite normal for February in Finland, but we haven't had a day above freezing since Christmas.
It was Alien eye day yesterday - fiddly but the end result is so satisfying as you see the little guys and gals come to life! Rabbbit eyes and noses next then sprinkles for the doughnuts. I hope to squeeze in a bit of wet felting soon but it is school holidays next week and I have promised to make real pasta with Elli. Sounds like fun too!!
