My husband came home with a new little something the other day. He works for Medtronic and has a couple of co-workers who also have children with diabetes. There are some huge benefits to this, including that they share new products with him. So, he came home with this:
This little thing is AWESOME! It's a new lancing device, with teeny tiny little lancets, a much quieter click, and a whole lot less movement. Lily loves it! Just after we tried it for the first time, we went out for a walk and I had to test Lily with the spare meter. She got mad that I was using the old "poker"! I tried it on myself and I honestly would have sworn to you that I hadn't even poked myself! The only "bad" side to it...you HAVE to use the lancets that are made specifically for it. And honestly, that's not such a bad thing. Especially when it comes to saving those teeny, tiny, itty-bitty fingers of our little children just a little bit of the pain and discomfort they already have to deal with!
