HE'S ALLERGIC TO THE I.V. TAPE!!
Yesterday I noticed he had been scratching on the edges of the tape. I could see the redness starting. Tonight when I looked at his bum it looked like a war zone. He's been itching all over. I think that's why his numbers have been running higher....not sure though...could be anything!!
I have a few different tapes to try and other barrier and I.V. prep wipes. Who knows what combination, if any, will work with him.
I've resigned myself to thinking the pump may not be an option at this time. Even J.J. is begging to go back to shots. Yesterday I had to bring down a high with a shot and at the time he was hoping I would take the pump off and go straight to shots. I told him I couldn't just do that. He was breaking my heart. I know the itching must be pretty bad if he is begging to go back to shots.
I do hope we find a solution soon, but I know it may take awhile to finish all the experiments! I just wish I didn't have to use my son in this BIG experiment....or even the little one!:-(
