Judah update! + Calling all diabetics!

We had a Babylon 5 marathon in the hospital yesterday, punctuated by the checking of blood sugar and occasional doctor visits. Judah's in good spirits - we're actually both really relieved to have a diagnosis! His weight loss and other stuff were scary.

He definitely has type 1 diabetes, and will require insulin. Which is where y'all come in: I know some of you use insulin pumps, and some of you do injections. I've been doing a lot of googling, but obviously I want to know what your personal experience has been like.

Also, to that end, any advice for a newly-diagnosed type 1 diabetic?

I'm off to the hospital again soon. We'll be seeing the diabetes counselor today, and they expect to release him today. I hope to still get to my Vericon panel this evening, but that's going to depend on how today goes down...
