Final check of her new prescriptions. We’re one step closer to a pump, but one step “back” from before in the sense that she’ll now have a lunchtime needle as well as the rest.

What’s the etiquette on giving insulin in public? We aren’t doing the pens because they don’t work for her needs. But a syringe in a dirty public bathroom icks me out.

Is this going to be one of those things Joe Schmo gets up in arms about, much like nursing in public? What do i do? Obviously i would keep it sanitary for all involved. But what… Just tastefully go for it? I haven’t had to think about this yet?!
