    How about more help for the handicapped who have to manage their diabetes? People worry about sending their kids to school. My husband goes into hospital overnight for surgery on May 13. I’m worried about that! He is brain-injured from neurosurgery 9 years ago, blind in one eye, hard of hearing, has no hands (an accident in 1970) and on a Paradigm RealTime for the last 2 years (and 5 years pumping before that). I’m having trouble getting the hospital to consent to me staying over with him even though I have managed the pump more than he has over the last 7 years and, as anyone on a pump and sensor knows, you have to be trained to manage a a pump and CGMs, do blood glucose readings correctly and so on and so forth. I think you have to be a multi-tasking, intuitive type to succeed at pump therapy, too. Could you pump gurus tell your colleagues that just because a patient’s wife runs this show doesn’t make it a no-brainer. I need to stay over.
