It's here, it's here, it's here!

Guess what the UPS man delivered to our house today?
Yep, that's right Connor got his pump!

As he opened the box to see what was inside he found lots of new gadgets that we
have to learn how to use.

A new meter that sends is blood sugar automatically to his pump.

Then there came the Care link system which is this awesome computer program that
we can plug his pump into and it will download all of the information off of his pump.

Then there it was,
The box that we've been waiting forever months for.

The Medtronic MiniMed Paradigm Revel Insulin Pump.

This is what we've all worked so hard for.
It's a little surreal to see him hold it in his hands.
This thing that seemed like a far off dream.
How blessed we are to have been surrounded by so many people 
who cared so much to help make this dream a reality for Connor.

Here it is in all it's blue glory.
It's amazing how something so small can be so life changing.
This will give Connor the freedom that every child deserves,
the chance to be a kid!

It's funny how you can get so emotional over something cold and plastic.
As I sit here and look at this pump sitting on my kitchen table
I am overwhelmed to know how many hands came to our rescue.
This little piece of technological bliss is a tangible reminder of how loved we are
and how generous and kind others can be.

 Once again THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart
for changing our lives forever.

Check back soon to see "Ol' Blue" in action.
We are waiting to attend our training class before we can begin pumping.
Which should be in the next week!
