I feel like throwing confetti in the air. Bean has done her last 6 injections by herself. By herself! The only help we gave was encouragement and double checking what she dialed up on the pen. I feel like we can actually handle this - well once we get her blood sugar down. It's still 50% of the time too high. But her doing her own injections is a huge accomplishment.

We're doing an incentive program every time she takes her own blood sugar she gets one sticker for a bookmark, taking her own injections gives her 5. When she gets 30 stickers she can trade her bookmark in for a little present. So far it's been a great motivator.
