Well, I tried the pump vacation for about 48 hours and it was mostly a roller coaster of ups and downs with a definitive lack of steady lines. Plus, I have a handful of purple bruises that make me look like a battered wife. I still plan on bringing both options onto the cruise, and will play it by ear... but I'm thinking I might stick with my pump.
I missed her.
I missed always having a clock attached to my body. (I know there is this invention called a wrist watch, but have never needed to wear one because of my pump!)
I missed micro-boluses. (Do I want to eat one Vanilla wafer and not have to give myself a shot for it? Yes.)
My pump is my friend.
